Black Star Riders announce UK and Ireland tour, 3rd album

null

Black Star Riders have announced a UK and Ireland tour for March 2017 with Backyard Babies, Gun and the Amorettes, to follow the release of third album Heavy Fire.

The follow-up to The Killer Instinct is currently being recorded with producer Nick Raskulinecz. Guitarist Scott Gorham says: “It‘s great to be back with Nick. After such a great job on The Killer Instinct it was a no-brainer to continue the relationship. This album is going to blow everyone away.”

Frontman Ricky Warwick says: “It seems like ages since we did the Def Leppard and Whitesnake tour, so we’re all really looking forward to be back out on the road.

“Our third album will be out just prior to the dates – it’s going to be great to play tracks from that along with favourites from the first two records also. Having my old friends from Backyard Babies, Gun and The Amorettes out with us too is just icing on the cake.”

The band have released an announcement video, available below. Tour tickets go on general sale at 10am on September 16.
