Canadian heavy metal powerhouse STRIKER is back from the grave!
With rumours running rampant of the band calling it quits after they posted an image that was titled “RIP Striker 2007-2021” on their social media earlier this week. The award-winning shredders are excited to reveal that it was all just an ambiguous post that got fans speculating on the band’s future and was made to prepare them for the new music.
“We are finally ready to share our new single Deathwish. Inspired by 1980s AOR with a modern twist, Deathwish is a heavy metal banger we can’t wait to play live someday soon!” adds vocalist Dan Cleary.
The single is the first taste of new recordings since releasing their Juno award-winning album 2018’s “Play To Win” along with it being Striker‘s introductory track with new drummer Jonathan Webster and bassist Pete Klassen who join the band in 2019.
Rock At Night says: We’ve been following the Canadian rock/metal band since 2015 and have always loved their “balls-to-the-walls” style of 80s rock. There were rumors the band was dead, so their new single is aptly entitled ‘Deathwish’. Nope. These guys are clearly here for the long haul–and we are happy about that!
