Die US-Rock n´ Roller und Thin Lizzy „Nachfahren“ BLACK STAR RIDERS haben für den 20. Januar 2023 die Veröffentlichung ihrer neuen Scheibe „Wrong Side Of Paradise“ angekündigt. Die erste Single `Better Than Saturday Night´ ist einer von elf neuen Tracks und oben drauf gibt es noch Backing Vocals von Def Leppard Leadsänger Joe Elliott.
Frontmann/Gitarrist Ricky Warwick über den neuen Track:
“Better Than Saturday Night” is a feel-good, uplifting tune about staying strong in the face of adversity, being true to yourself, and the power of positivity. I wrote it for my kids, but subliminally I think I also wrote it for myself and everyone for those days when we need to find a little bit of extra strength. We wanted to reflect the positivity, power, attitude and strength to endure sentiment in the lyrics of the song. And no better way to do that than Black Star Riders rockin’ out with the Los Angeles Roller Derby Dolls.”
Und zum Album sagt er Folgendes:
“I am very proud of this record, Black Star Riders fifth release and the first with our new and exciting relationship with Earache Records. As with all BSR albums, Wrong Side Of Paradise is an anthemic statement of intent, driven by ferocious guitars and thundering drums. I can only write about my own personal experiences, my families, my friends and how I see a world that is unraveling and changing faster than we can comprehend. That being said, I’m a firm believer in the power of positivity, something that echoes throughout this album.“
