Black Star Riders are set to cap a hugely successful 2015 with two headline shows in the UK in December 2015. These shows are in addition to their guest slot on the fast selling Def Leppard/Whitesnake double bill in the same month. In celebration of hitting the road, the band have released an official lyric video for ‘Soldierstown’ over on YouTube which you can view below.
Front man Ricky Warwick commented on the track:
“Soldierstown” is a song with a dark and poignant lyric tempered with a huge Celtic guitar riff. Sometimes pulling the covers over your head is not enough…
Damon Johnson and Scott Gorham spoke about the band’s pre-show rituals and what it’s like for them to get up on stage and play for their fans recently – watch what they had to say on YouTube.
On the band’s forthcoming UK tour, Ricky added:
To say we are excited by by being part of the Whitesnake/Def Leppard bill is an understatement. It’s always great to go on tour with your friends and Black Star Riders will also have been on tour in Europe 4 weeks prior to this…So we will be well oiled and fired up for it!
