Def Leppard Vocalist Says New Black Star Riders Album Is Their Best Effort To Date

BLACK STAR RIDERS release a video to accompany their new single “Another State Of Grace.” A cool performance video that introduces the new band lineup, featuring Chad Szeliga (Drums) and Christian Martucci (Lead Guitar), who join Ricky Warwick (guitar, vocals), Scott Gorham (guitar) and Robbie Crane (bass).

Vocalist Ricky Warwick says “We wanted a video that was direct, straightforward and uncompromising. To portray the power and meaning behind the song!”

Another State Of Grace sees the band deliver another stunning collection of songs. The bands’ new members Chad Szeliga (Drums) and Christian Martucci (Lead Guitar) further developing the band’s burgeoning reputation as one of the most essential contemporary rock acts. Recorded at Sphere Studios in Burbank, California in February 2017, Another State Of Grace was produced & mixed by Jay Ruston (STONE SOURANTHRAXURIAH HEEP).

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”.

Vocalist Ricky Warwick says, “This has probably been the most enjoyable experience in the studio I have had making a record. The vibe and commitment the boys brought into this was stellar. Our most anthemic and soulful album to date. I’m very proud and excited for people to hear Another State Of Grace!”
