2013-05-21 - Only a few days left until the release of the BLACK STAR RIDERS debut album »All Hell Breaks Loose«, which will be out on Friday, 24th May 2013.
BLACK STAR RIDERS is the new band featuring THIN LIZZY members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza together with drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (ALICE COOPER, MEGADETH and others.)
The band has now released the lyric video for the track ‘Kingdom Of The Lost’:
The video features several artworks of the renowned Belfast artist Terry Bradley.
“He was so blown away by ‘Kingdom Of The Lost’ when I played it for him, he gave us his art to use for free something he has never done before. His paintings go for anywhere from 50 to 100,000 pounds and Madonna and Bono are some of his famous clients”, says vocalist Ricky Warwick and adds some more amazing information about the black & white pictures used: “Just a wee bit of history on this for anyone that's interested , the picture of the two gentlemen in the very dapper 1930 suits at the start of the chorus are my Grandfather and Great Grandfather, also the shop in the chorus "McNeily's" was my Great Grandmother's bakery in Belfast, the picture of the young man in the soldier' s uniform is also my Great Grandfather who at 14 years (he lied about his age, you had to be 16 to fight) of age ran away from Belfast to enlist in the British army, to fight in the First World War he got as far as Southampton, where he got seriously ill with pleurisy and was hospitalized and when they found out he was only 14 sent him back home to Belfast, he enlisted again in 1918 when he was 17 but by then the war was over! Anyway I guess this was a big inspiration for the lyrics for me”.
»All Hell Breaks Loose« was produced & mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (LED ZEPPELIN, AEROSMITH, IRON MAIDEN, RUSH…)
