Stryper have released a video for Sorry. It’s taken from the band’s upcoming God Damn Evil album, the follow-up to 2015’s Fallen. The album’s title is a reference to what the band sees as the perilous state of the world in 2018.
“We thought long and hard about this title,” says frontman Michael Sweet. “It was actually considered quite a few years ago and it just didn’t feel like the right time. Now, with all the evil in the world that we see around us on a daily basis, it made perfect sense. It’s a very bold statement yet a prayer asking God to damn/condemn evil. Nothing more, nothing less.
“We all see and hear the darkness that surrounds us in our society, but with faith and love, we’ll always have hope,” he continues. “That’s what Stryper is all about: powerful music and a message that builds foundations, not walls. We couldn’t be more excited about God Damn Evil, as it showcases our undying love for what we do and why we do it.”
God Damn Evil will be released on April 20 (opens in new tab).
Stryper will head out on tour to support God Damn Evil, a schedule that includes an appearance at this year’s Frontier Rocks Festival in Italy on April 28 alongside Jorn, Quiet Riot, Jack Rusell’s Great White, FM and more (full US dates below).
