Striker – All about their upcoming record

Nov 16th, 2015

Canadian heavy metal animals STRIKER are ready to set out on a new adventure with their fourth album ‘Stand In The Fire‘ being released via their own label Record Breaking Records on February 5, 2016. Distribution and promotion are handled by cmm GmbH artist service SAOL.

The band recorded the album themselves at home (!) with the help of Randy Black and mixing genius Frederik Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, In Flames, Opeth) – giving them not only the time and space needed but also the freedom to set up the release direct to fans worldwide. Ambitious WORK HORSES!

Preorder-/crowdfunding campaign
In order to accomplish this DIY concept, STRIKER rely on their fans’ support and launched an exciting crowdfunding campaign today: Until December 10th, fans can grab amazing perks such as the chance to pick cover songs for the album, special shows in their own basement and more. Total awesomeness for their early adopters: the CDs and Vinyls for pre-order will be exclusive special editions! Behold thy paradise:

First song premiere
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. This beast is like the ultimate time machine headed for the eighties – only much better sounding!
To get a foretaste of STRIKER’s new masterpiece, listen to their new track ‘Too Latehere.
