Classic rockers Black Star Riders have released a trailer for new album 'Heavy Fire'. Due for release in February 2017, the disc will be followed by an extensive U.K. and Irish run of dates. The video, which features interviews with singer Ricky Warwick, can be viewed below.
Comments Ricky about the new disc: "Myself and Damon Johnson work really well together. We went to our manager's house in Southern California - he was away for a week so Damon flew in from Nashville and I drove down from my place in LA and we hung out there for a week. I brought in a bunch of ideas and lyrics and Damon brought in some stuff too. By the end of the four or five days we had ten or twelve solid songs together, which was great. We work very quickly together because we're always very well prepared and we're always writing individually"
After a full year off the road, Black Star Riders - Ricky Warwick, Scott Gorham, Damon Johnson, Robbie Crane and Jimmy DeGrasso - are back with a sixteen date U.K. & Ireland run, joined on the first five dates by Scottish rockers Gun and The Amorettes and then Sweden¹s own Backyard Babies with Gun on the remaining eleven shows.
