Black Star Riders have released a video for their track Dancing With The Wrong Girl.

It was filmed at East London’s God’s Own Junkyard and directed by Louis Catlett. The track features on the band’s latest album Heavy Fire, which launched in February via Nuclear Blast.

Lead vocalist and guitarist Ricky Warwick says of the track: “The greatest lie we can endure is from our own denial – sometimes two wrongs can make it alright.”

The band wrapped up a tour of the UK are Ireland last month, but have a string of dates lined up across Europe over the coming months – including an appearance at this year’s Ramblin’ Man Fair at Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent, on July 29.

Warwick said about playing the UK festival: “Black Star Riders are delighted to make their Ramblin’ Man debut at this year’s festival.

“Having played there last year with Thin Lizzy and Warwick/Johnson, I can vouch for what a wonderful and atmospheric experience it is. Black Star Riders will be ready and primed.”
