Black Star Riders talk new record

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 Johnson, Ricky 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!”
