Nur noch wenige Tage bis zur Veröffentlichung des BLACK STAR RIDERS Debüts »All Hell Breaks Loose«, welches ab dem kommenden Freitag, 24. Mai in den Läden stehen wird. BLACK STAR RIDERS ist die neue Combo der ex-THIN LIZZY Mitglieder Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham und Marco Mendoza gemeinsam mit Drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (ALICE COOPER, MEGADETH). Ab sofort gibt es das großartige Lyric Video zu dem Track ‘Kingdom Of The Lost’ zu bestaunen: In dem Clip gibt es verschiedene Gemälde des renommierten, aus Belfast stammenden Künstlers Terry Bradley zu sehen. “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”, so Vokalist Ricky Warwick, der noch weitere interessante Informationen zu den dortigen Fotographien parat hat: “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« wurde von Kevin Shirley (LED ZEPPELIN, AEROSMITH, IRON MAIDEN, RUSH…) gemischt und produziert. Die Tracklist von »All Hell Breaks Loose« liest sich wie folgt: 01. All Hell Breaks Loose 02. Bound For Glory 03. Kingdom Of The Lost 04. Bloodshot 05. Kissin’ The Ground 06. Hey Judas 07.
