Striker 2016

Recently awarded this year’s Edmonton Music Prize for their 2014 release ‘City of Gold‘, Canadian new wave metallers STRIKER are gearing up for the release of their new album ‘Stand In The Fire‘ via their own Record Breaking Records label on February 5, 2016. The band’s next single ‘Out For Blood‘ is now streaming for its Canadian premiere here at Metal Nation News.

Guitarist Tim Brown comments on the track:

Out for Blood is our little slice of 80’s cop-drama saxophone filled metal. We wanted to go completely over the top, stuff it full of solos and crazy shred, and just go nuts on every aspect on the song. Thrash metal Miami Vice!

Listen to ‘Out For Blood‘ below:

Stand In The Fire‘ is STRIKER‘s most uncompromising record to date. A record packed with incredible riffs and colossal anthems, all laced together with epic harmonies. Inspired by legendary bands like Iron Maiden, Striker wears their hearts firmly on their battle jackets, soaking up the power and influence of classic rock and metal.

The band; Dan Clearly (vocals) Tim Brown (lead/rhythm guitars) William Wallace (bass) Adam Brown (drums) recorded the album themselves with the help of Randy Black (who filled in on drums while Adam was away…) and mixing genius Frederik Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, In Flames, Opeth) giving them not only the time and space needed but the freedom to set up the release direct to fans worldwide.

The band’s first single and music video ‘Too Late‘ is streaming here along with a newly posted guitar lesson video on GuitarWorld.com HERE
