Recently awarded this year’s Edmonton Music Prize for their 2014 release‘City of Gold’, Canadian new wave metallers STRIKER are gearing up for the release of their new album ‘Stand In The Fire’ via their own Record Breaking Records label on February 5, 2016. Teaming with Exclaim, the band is proud to present the Canadian premiere and full album stream for ‘Stand In The Fire’ before its official release.
STRIKER comments on the album:
“We released Stand in the Fire on our own, with no one to tell us what to do. We broke all the rules and wrote our own, and this album is all about perseverance and going out there and getting shit done. We crossed all the lines we could find and gladly jumped outside of typical genre limits. We wanted something new and fresh, and no one could hold us back this time. We hope you enjoy the new album, it’s 100% pure Striker”

‘Stand In The Fire’ is STRIKER‘s most uncompromising record to date. A record packed with incredible riffs and colossal anthems, all laced together with epic harmonies. Inspired by legendary bands like Iron Maiden, Striker wears their hearts firmly on their battle jackets, soaking up the power and influence of classic rock and metal.
The band; Dan Clearly (vocals) Tim Brown (lead/rhythm guitars) William Wallace (bass) Adam Brown (drums) recorded the album themselves with the help of Randy Black (who filled in on drums while Adam was away…) and mixing genius Frederik Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, In Flames, Opeth) giving them not only the time and space needed but the freedom to set up the release direct to fans worldwide.
STRIKER will be hitting the road with Primal Fear across Europe in February 2016.

STRIKER formed in Edmonton, Canada in 2007 and they were signed to German label Iron Kodex off the strength of their first demo. They made two albums with the label and recorded 2nd album Armed To The Teeth with acclaimed producer Michael Wagener (Ozzy, Skid Row, Metallica). They played shows with Metallica in Canada and hit the road for what eventually became a full world tour with shows across Europe and Japan. They used their time in Europe to work with Frederik Nordstrom and were snapped up by Napalm Records in 2012 for the release of the acclaimed album City Of Gold.
