Nuclear Blast are pleased to announce the release of BLACK STAR RIDERS third studio album, Heavy Fire, in February 2017. The band will support the album with a full UK and Ireland tour in March 2017.
The band's previous album, The Killer Instinct was released in 2015 to widespread critical acclaim and went on to score multiple radio playlists. A solid year of worldwide touring culminated in December 2015 in an UK arena tour alongside DEF LEPPARD and WHITESNAKE.
Following on from their critically acclaimed albums All Hell Breaks Loose and The Killer Instinct which have paved the way for BLACK STAR RIDERS to be recognized as a power force in the modern day of Rock n’ Roll, Heavy Fire will be once again released by Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The band have also brought in Pledgemusic, one of the most innovative and successful platforms of the modern music world, to give fans extra special product and experiences to go along with the album’s release.
