Black Star Riders Release Fourth Trailer for ‘Heavy Fire’

Black Star Riders

BLACK STAR RIDERS are set to release their forthcoming album Heavy Fire on the 3rd of February 2017 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. In anticipation of this release, the band have unveiled a fourth video in which Damon JohnsonRicky Warwick and Scott Gorham discuss how the album’s title track came about. Check out the video here:

Damon Johnson comments, “I just remember showing up at the studio when we were actually making the album and there was the original title, ‘The Salvation’. Then one day I looked up at the board and the title had been changed to ‘Heavy Fire’, which was a song we had decided not to make and I’m like, what’s happening?! He [Ricky] says, ‘oh I’ve changed the lyric mate, you’re gonna love it, check it out!'”

Ricky Warwick adds, “The album was always going to be called Heavy Fire. I had the title for quite some time and really liked it. I just thought it felt so right with the other records… All Hell Breaks Loose, The Killer Instinct, Heavy Fire – it just sounds great when you say all three together!”

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

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
