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.

2016 saw the band return to the studio with The Killer Instinct's producer Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, THE FOO FIGHTERS, MASTODON), at his studio just outside Nashville. The resultant album is BLACK STAR RIDERS' most accomplished work to date. From the immediate riffs of album opener "Heavy Fire" to the instant hooks of first single "When The Night Comes In", from the dirty bass groove of "Thinking About You Could Get Me Killed" to the familiar and trademark dual guitars of Gorham and Johnson on "Testify Or Say Goodbye", this is an album that will further cement BLACK STAR RIDERS' reputation as one of the world premiere rock acts.

"Angst, passion, power, glory, love, truth, lies, loyalty, questions that begged to be answered. There's a guitar army coming…and it's bringing the Heavy Fire!" – Ricky Warwick (vocals)

"Not many new bands get to record three albums these days. Without doubt this is BSR's best album so far. We had a great time recording it and can't wait to play the new songs live on tour in March." – Scott Gorham (guitars)

Following on from their 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.
