BLACK STAR RIDERS: Reveal Album Artwork! Album Details And 2013 Festivals Revealed!

Black Star Riders - All Hell Breaks Loose - promo cover



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 in the UK on the 27th May 2013.

The artwork features a painting by Gil Elvgren (March 15, 1914 – February 29, 1980), the legendary US painter best known for his work on pin-up girls, advertising and illustration:

The artworks ties directly to the origins of the album title. Ricky Warwick explains “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 seemed 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.”

Bound For Glory, the debut single from the album, saw its exclusive first play on Ken Bruce’s Radio 2 radio show on Thursday 21st March 2013. The song is now available to hear HERE!

  1. Wow, they’re really keeping the Lizzy legacy alive with that track – I saw Thin Lizzy with Robbo and Scott when they first toured the ‘Night life’ album in…erm about ’74 I think!, and met original guitarist Eric Bell some years ago, and was happy to hear he’d seen me impersonate Phil on UK TV! In a couple of weeks, Miki and I make a pilgrimage to Dublin where I’ll pay my respects to one of my greatest influences. \m/

    • So intensely cool your rubbing elbows with members of Thin Lizzy like that! That video of yours is FUN stuff! Hope your trip to Dublin is cool and… ROCKS! I’m sure your influence (Phil) up in Rock ‘N’ Roll Heaven… agrees that you ROCK Kev!
