Striker unleash Too Late video

Striker have released a video of Too Late. It’s taken from the band’s forthcoming album Stand In The Fire, the fan-funded follow-up to last year’s City Of Gold. Inspired by bands like Iron Maiden, the new album is described as “a record packed with incredible riffs and colossal anthems, all laced together with epic harmonies”.

“Obviously, performance videos are great for capturing a feel for the band,” says guitarist Tim Brown. “We’ll be heading out to play in Europe, South America and North America soon and we really wanted to give people a teaser of what our new and improved show will bring. We love making our Keg Saga videos (a new instalment is in planning now…), which is basically Power Rangers where evil keg monsters have taken over the universe and we have to fight back, but at the same time who doesn’t enjoy big hair, big moves, flashy guitars, and a hell of a lot of slow motion? If we make another performance video we will have pyro, we swear!”

Too Late is available as a free download from CDBaby, while Stand In The Fire album is released on February 26, and can be pre-ordered now. Striker’s European tour starts in February (dates below).
