BLACK STAR RIDERS, the new band featuring THIN LIZZY members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza together with drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper / Megadeth), have announced ‘All Hell Breaks Loose’ as the title of their debut album on Nuclear Blast Entertainment, which will be released Worldwide on the following dates:

May 27th – U.K., France, BeNeLux, Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Greece

May 28th – U.S., Canada, Italy, South America


About the origin of the album title, BLACK STAR RIDERS frontman Ricky Warwick states:

“I was watching a documentary about World War II bombers and saw the name painted on the side of one of the aircraft. The name just resonated with me and it seem to encapsulate the turmoil that we, as a society, are currently experiencing. The past few years have been such a wild ride and now with the release of the album, it sounded like a bad-ass album title that summed up what BLACK STAR RIDERS is all about.”

Produced & mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Rush), the track listing for All Hell Breaks Loose is:

01. All Hell Breaks Loose

02. Bound For Glory

03. Kingdom Of The Lost

04. Bloodshot

05. Kissin’ The Ground

06. Hey Judas

07. Hoodoo Voodoo

08. Valley Of The Stones

09. Someday Salvation

10. Before The War

11. Blues Ain’t So Bad


The album will be released as a standard CD and also as a special edition digi-pak featuring a bonus track “Got A Right To Be Wrong” and a “Making of” DVD.

A 24-minute compilation of behind-the-scenes video reports from the band’s studio time in Los Angeles can be viewed on YouTube:
