Single of the Week: Black Star Riders - Another State Of Grace

BLACK STAR RIDERS return with the brand new title track to their new album, Another State of Grace ahead of the band embarking on a huge UK and Irish tour this autumn

Another State of Grace is set for release on 6th September 2019, their fourth via long-time home Nuclear Blast Records, and is the first which feature drummer Chad Szeliga(Black Label Society) and new guitarist Christian Martucci (Stone Sour). The line-up is completed by Ricky Warwick on guitar and vocals, Scott Gorham on guitar and bassist Robbie Crane

Another State of Grace was recorded and mixed in Burbank, Los Angeles by renowned producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour, Steel Panther) and will be available on CD, vinyl, vinyl picture disc, limited edition box set and limited edition light green vinyl

Previous album, 2017’s Heavy Fire, saw a career high of charting at #6 in the UK album charts, and saw key radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 2 (multiple playlists, Ricky Warwick’s Tracks of My Years with Ken Bruce and a live to air interview and performance on the Michael Ball show), Planet Rock Radio (multiple A-lists), dozens ofregional rock ILRs as well as multiple BBC regional stations (interviews and acoustic sessions)

Longtime supporter Joe Elliott, vocalist of Def Leppard says “I’ve been an ardent supporter ever since they started their journey having moved away from being Thin Lizzy and becoming a legitimate band in their own right. For me, this is by far their best effort to date”

After touring extensively throughout the Heavy Fire cycle, including massive European tours and festival slots, as well as a North and South America trek with Judas Priest, BlackStar Riders are set to return to UK shores later this year
