Jack The Stripper stream debut album Raw Nerve

Jack The Stripper have streamed their debut album Raw Nerve exclusively with TeamRock.

The record is officially out on August 11, but is available to hear in full below.

They previously issued a video of their track Nibiru, with frontman Luke Frizon explaining the meaning behind the song.

He told Metal Hammer: “With so many different platforms shared by media and your peers telling you how to feel, how to think, how to view yourself every day – it’s a given that disillusionment and dissociation will strike a lot of people, and cause suffering.

“Nibiru is for those people and seeks to illustrate the sense of loss, separation, and worthlessness that they feel.”

They’ll head out on tour next month in support of the album.

Evergrey release Distance video

Evergrey have released a video for their track Distance.

It’s taken from their 10th album The Storm Within, which is out on September 9.

Frontman Tom S Englund said of the follow-up to 2014’s Hymns For The Broken: “We went from having no intention of making an album at all to having all the inspiration in the world on Hymns For The Broken. Honestly, we’ve never felt better.

The Storm Within is a massive album. There are no fillers on it and we’ve never been about that. I think the inspiration speaks for itself.”

The Storm Within, which also features a guest appearance from Nightwish singer Floor Jansen, is available for pre-order in a variety of bundles.

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider to release solo album We Are The Ones

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider will launch his solo album We Are The Ones this October.

The record includes a re-recorded acoustic version of We’re Not Gonna Take It, as well as a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ Head Like A Hole.

Snyder says: “When you’re creating a new record, you want to make a statement, and you want to have music you can stand behind and feel strongly about. So it was a little unnerving when I started heading down this path.”

Further release details will be revealed in due course.

Twisted Sister will perform at the Bloodstock festival next month.

Last In Line’s Vinny Appice hints at European tour with Saxon

Last In Line may tour Europe with Saxon later this year, according to Vinny Appice.

It would be the first-ever tour for the band, which features Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell, drummer Appice and singer Andrew Freeman. Their late bassist, Rainbow and Dio ex Jimmy Bain, died of lung cancer during Def Leppard’s Cruising Festival in January. He was 68.

Appice tells The Chainsaw Symphony: “We’re going to do some dates on the West Coast at the end of October, and then we’re gonna go over to Europe and do about a month there with Saxon and a couple of other bands, and a couple of dates on our own, and a festival or two in there.

He adds: “We haven’t really gone out and bombarded the audience with this yet. And a lot of people can’t wait for us to come to their cities.

“We’re not doing this to just go out and try to make money – we’re doing this because we wanna do it.”

Last In Line will play Pwllhell’s Hard Rock Hell Festival in Wales on November 10.
