Black Star Riders

Last week, BLACK STAR RIDERS vocalist Ricky Warwick and guitarist Damon Johnson dropped in on Eddie Trunk at SiriusXM Radio’s HQ while in New York City on a promotional tour for their debut album All Hell Breaks Loose – due out in North America on May 28th.  The result was the definitive live radio interview covering the historical context and each band member’s history leading to the creation of the rock world’s latest super group: BLACK STAR RIDERS.

ABOUT BLACK STAR RIDERS:  In 2012, the touring members of THIN LIZZY began to seriously consider utilizing the vast songwriting talent within the band and spoke of it freely in the press. When THIN LIZZY drummer Brian Downey and keyboardist Darren Wharton bowed out of a new album and the subsequent tours to support it, the remaining members decided to band together under the BLACK STAR RIDERS name allowing them to forge forward from – yet informed by – the historical legacy that the THIN LIZZY name is infused with.

The BLACK STAR RIDERS line-up features THIN LIZZY members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza together with drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper / Megadeth).  Produced & mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Rush), their first studio album All Hell Breaks Loose features cover artwork by Gil Elvgren– the most renowned pin-up artist in the history of American Illustration.
