BLACK STAR RIDERS will release their fourth studio album, “Another State Of Grace”, on September 6 via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2017’s “Heavy Fire” was recorded in February 2019 at Sphere Studios in Burbank, California with producer Jay Ruston (STONE SOUR, ANTHRAX, URIAH HEEP).
Longtime supporter Joe Elliott, vocalist of DEF LEPPARD, says: “I’ve been an ardent supporter ever since they started their journey having moved away from being THIN LIZZY and becoming a legitimate band in their own right. For me, this is by far their best effort to date.”
Vocalist Ricky Warwick says: “This has probably been the most enjoyable experience in the studio I have had making a record. The vibe and commitment the boys brought into this was stellar. Our most anthemic and soulful album to date. I’m very proud and excited for people to hear ‘Another State Of Grace’.”
The album will be made available on CD, vinyl and vinyl picture disc, limited-edition boxset and limited edition light green vinyl.
BLACK STAR RIDERS consists of Ricky Warwick (lead vocals, guitar), Scott Gorham (lead guitar) and Robert Crane (bass) along with recent additions Chad Szeliga (drums) and Christian Martucci (lead guitar).
Gorham says: “It was great to be back in Los Angeles, and recording with Jay Ruston was an absolute pleasure. I am excited to see everyone’s reactions to this amazing record… and I can’t wait to get back on the road and play you these new songs.”
Guitarist Damon Johnson announced his exit from BLACK STAR RIDERS in September, but continued performing with the band until the end of the group’s U.K. tour in early December.
“Heavy Fire” was a worldwide success, reaching position No. 6 on the U.K. chart, No. 11 on the German chart, and No. 91 on U.S. Current Top Albums chart.
