ROUNDUP NEWS: LA Guns, Striker, Grande Royale, Maharaja

A roundup of various news bits and pieces from the world of Hard Rock & Metal including updates on LA Guns, Striker, Grande Royale and Maharaja.



L.A. GUNS have released a news song titled “Christine” from the band’s upcoming album, “The Missing Peace”, which will be released on October 13 via Frontiers Music Srl.

As the revival of the classic ’80s hard rock and heavy metal scene continues unabated here in the 21st century, one reunion has been at the top of the wishlists of many a fan for a long time: the songwriting combination of Tracii Guns and Philip Lewis under the L.A. GUNS banner. What once seemed like a distant memory with no hope of returning has now come around and fans are about to be rewarded for keeping their fingers crossed and their hopes up.



Six months after the release of their critically-acclaimed self-titled album, Striker are back at the top of their game with a brand new video for its opening track Former Glory! And the kickass result perfectly reflects the message conveyed by the song: going at it full speed in a better shape than ever.

Striker is about to embark on a one-month North American tour with Dark Tranquillity and Warbringer, starting early September. The band will play Europe again next year with a new album to present to their fans. There is no room for doubt anymore: Striker is living for the future!
