Black Star Riders To Record New Album This Fall

2013 saw the release of the Black Star Riders debut album, "All Hell Breaks Loose," and the band also toured throughout Europe and Scandinavia supporting the release.

Now it is time for the guys to continue with this momentum and create a follow-up album. Scott Gorham sums it up: "The fan response has been better then we could have hoped. I haven’t had this much fun in years!"

When it comes to the team behind the soundboard, Black Star Riders decided to change things up this time around. Taking over the production reins will be Def Leppard front man Joe Elliott. Adding to the dream team will be long time Leppard sound guru Ronan McHugh.

Ricky Warwick chimes in on the reason Joe was tapped for this album: “Joe Elliott's passion, enthusiasm for music, as a fan, artist and friend is unquestionable and Ronan McHugh is a phenomenal engineer. Personally having worked with these guys before, it was a no brainer when they said they would like to produce the new BSR album. We are confident that this will be a huge leap forward in the evolution of BSR.”

Joe Elliott adds, “Having worked with Scott on the Thin Lizzy remixes a few years ago & having produced Ricky’s 1st 2 solo albums, I’m looking forward to taking our musical journey together even further. We’re aiming to make a serious leap forward with the next album & I’m proud to be able to contribute to the next chapter in the BSR story.”

Black Star Riders is set to enter the studio in Dublin, Ireland in October 2014 to start recording the album. Damon Johnson adds: “We are all excited about working with Joe, he is like part of the family. And recording this album in Ireland is a special treat for us.”

The new, as yet untitled, album will be released in the spring of 2015 through Nuclear Blast.
