There’s a beautiful purity to the finest rock ‘n’ roll, a thrilling simplicity in striking an over-amplified guitar chord, a transcendent joy in getting high on just volume, adrenaline and a backbeat. BLACK STAR RIDERS, lifers in an industry less secure than a secret in a soap opera, understand this, which is why “Heavy Fire”, the quintet’s latest UK Top 10 album for Nuclear Blast Entertainment, sounds so fresh and exhilarating and alive.
The band are currently coming to the end of a run of well-received European summer festival dates with new drummer Chad Szeliga. Just prior to their “special guest” slot at the Ramblin’ Man Fair on July 29th, BLACK STAR RIDERS are pleased to present the official lyric video for the track ‘Cold War Love’. The song is a smouldering and reflective ballad, packed with the band’s signature sound and soaring riffs. Check it out below:
