BLACK STAR RIDERS are set to release their forthcoming album »Heavy Fire« on the 3rd of February 2017. Today, the band premiere the new video for second single, 'Testify Or Say Goodbye'.

Frontman Ricky Warwick comments on the track:
"Power, glory, rock n roll with a whole lotta soul..
You gotta testify or say goodbye
Tell me no secrets, tell me no lies
Get up on the stand look me straight in the eye
You gotta testify or say goodbye ... Kinda says it all really !!!"

From the immediate riffs of album opener 'Heavy Fire' to the instant hooks of first single 'When The Night Comes In', from the dirty bass groove of 'Thinking About You Could Get Me Killed' to the familiar and trademark dual guitars of Gorham and Johnson on 'Testify Or Say Goodbye', »Heavy Fire« is an album that will further cement BLACK STAR RIDER's reputation as one of the world premiere rock acts.

Following on from their critically acclaimed albums »All Hell Breaks Loose« and »The Killer Instinct«, which have paved the way for BLACK STAR RIDERS to be recognised as a power force in the modern day of Rock 'n' Roll, »Heavy Fire« will be once again released by Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The band have also brought in Pledgemusic, one of the most innovative and successful platforms of the modern music world, to give fans extra special product and experiences to go along with the album's release.
