Striker

Canadian shredders STRIKER will be hitting the road in April and May 2022 to support Finnish heavy metallers Beast In Black for their first North American headlining tour along with Florida power metal warriors Seven Kingdoms.

Before kicking off the first date of the tour in Orlando, FL on April 7th, STRIKER are unveiling their latest single “Strange Love” with a new music video that features the debut of the band’s latest lineup addition of long time friend and guitarist John Simon Fallon.

“Strange Love” is the band’s first single of 2022 since releasing “Deathwish” last year. The band is currently in songwriting mode for their follow-up record to their Juno award-winning album 2018’s “Play To Win”.

“When we wrote Strange Love we were dabbling in the dark arts of funk, and although it really doesn’t sound like it we drew big inspiration from bands like Extreme and Faith No More. It was a bit of a detour on our metal journey, but it was a lot of fun to record. We have one more song to release from that recording session too, which leans even further into that style so keep an eye out for that!” adds vocalist Dan Cleary.

 

Blending heavy metal, hard rock, and 80’s hair metal, Striker has been making spectacular anthems since 2007. The band has toured several times across Europe and North America and has appeared at 70,000 Tons of Metal, Bang Your Head Festival (Germany), and more to add up to almost 1000 shows performed in their career. The band has won multiple Best Album awards in  Canada. Striker has released six studio albums Eyes in the Night, Armed to The Teeth, City of Gold, Stand in the Fire, Striker, and Play to Win.

 

Catch Striker while they tour North America again with Beast In Black and Seven Kingdoms (who just finished a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign to fund their next album and tour. We can’t wait for those perks to start rolling in!) on the Dark Connection Tour.
