Black Star Riders have announced that their new studio album, Another State Of Grace, will be released on September 6, 2019.
The band will support the record with a full UK and Ireland tour in October 2019 with additional dates in other territories to be announced in the near future.
Another State Of Grace will introduce the talents of two new band members to fans: former Black Label Society drummer Chad Szeliga, who replaced Jimmy DeGrasso in 2017; and Stone Sour axeman Christian Martucci, who stepped into Damon Johnson’s shoes at the beginning of 2019.
Black Star Riders’ fourth full length, which will be released on Nuclear Blast, was recorded at Sphere Studios in Burbank, California and was produced and mixed by Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Uriah Heep).
Black Star Riders vocalist Ricky Warwick said: “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!”
Longtime supporter and Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott, added: “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.”
The album is available on CD, vinyl and vinyl picture disc, limited edition boxset and limited edition light green vinyl.
The band previous album, Heavy Fire, was released in 2017 and enjoyed widespread fan and critical acclaim.
