906850_399428780156464_2129402841_oYes, another Black Star Riders story; and why not?

The new-Lizzy line-up has unveiled the impressive new art-work for their forthcoming debut album, All Hell Breaks Loose. Below is a blurb about the art-work and its origins that the band themselves posted earlier this morning. All hell breaks loose hits shelves in May, not June as previously reported by stupid Tickets There minions (me…the editor, owners and guru extraordinaire).

‘The artwork features a painting by Gil Elvgren (March 15, 1914 – February 29, 1980), the legendary US painter best known for his work on pin-up girls, advertising and illustration.

The artworks ties directly to the origins of the album title. Ricky Warwick explains “I was watching a documentary about World War II bombers and saw the name painted on the side of one of the aircraft. The name just resonated with me and it seemed to encapsulate the turmoil that we, as a society, are currently experiencing. The past few years have been such a wild ride and now with the release of the album, it sounded like a bad-ass album title that summed up what BLACK STAR RIDERS is all about.”

Last week, Black Star Riders released the first song from the new album, ‘Bound For Glory’, which you can listen to below.

Black Star Riders – ‘Bound For Glory’

untitledMixing hardened rock ‘n’ roll spirits, working man dreams and an indestructible spirit; Black Star Riders have emerged from the most recent Thin Lizzy touring line-up to end a thirty year hiatus from releasing music and break free from the spectre of Phil Lynott (in the most respectful way possible). While Philo will always be regarded as the king of Irish rock, the rest of the world must carry on and this is exactly what Ricky Warwick, Scott Gorham, Damon Johnson and Marco Mendoza planned when they toyed with the idea of new Thin Lizzy album.
After some thought, the lads decided not to tempt the lash of Philo’s holy faithful by smacking on the LIZZY logo and formed a new band to nurture and cultivate the new material. Finally, they’ve arrived. The album (All Hell Breaks Loose) is due to hit shelves in June and the band have released the first taste of their ‘new sound’. Personally, I don’t know if Lizzy fans would have minded this carrying the iconic name. Sure it’s not up there with the classics, but as rock goes you could do a hell of a lot worse. What do you think of ‘Bound for Glory’?
