BLACK STAR RIDERS are set to release their forthcoming album Heavy Fire on the 3rd of February via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Today, the band unveil the fifth video trailer in which Damon Johnson, Ricky Warwick and Scott Gorham discuss some of their early influences and favourite bands and artists. Check out the video here:

Damon Johnson remembers, “I grew up in a very musical household. My mom sang in church and played a little piano, my dad played some guitar and he was always buying records. The radio was on constantly too. My earliest memory was of music in the house.”

“It really kicked off with The Beatles. The first time I heard ‘She Loves You’ I thought, holy crap, who are these guys?” Adds Scott Gorham.

The band recently premiered the new video for second single, ‘Testify Or Say Goodbye‘ here:

‘When The Night Comes In’ Lyric Video:

‘Testify Or Say Goodbye” Music Video:

From the immediate riffs of album opener Heavy Fire to the instant hooks of first single “When The Night Comes In,” from the dirty bass groove of “Thinking About You Could Get Me Killed” to the familiar and trademark dual guitars of Gorham and Johnson on “Testify Or Say Goodbye,” Heavy Fire is an album that will further cement BSR¹s reputation as one of the world premiere rock acts.

Following on from their critically acclaimed albums All Hell Breaks Loose and The Killer Instinct which have paved the way for Black Star Riders to be recognised as a power force in the modern day of Rock n’ Roll, Heavy Fire will be once again released by Nuclear Blast Entertainment.  The band have also brought in PledgeMusic, one of the most innovative and successful platforms of the modern music world, to give fans extra special product and experiences to go along with the album’s release.
