STRIKER Is Not Dead! They Just Have A “Deathwish” And It’s A New Single!
With rumours running rampant of the band calling it quits after they posted an image that was titled “RIP Striker 2007-2021” on their social media earlier this week. The award-winning shredders are excited to reveal that it was all just an ambiguous post that got fans speculating on the band’s future and was made to prepare them for the new music.
“We are finally ready to share our new single Deathwish. Inspired by 1980s AOR with a modern twist, Deathwish is a heavy metal banger we can’t wait to play live someday soon!” adds vocalist Dan Cleary.
The much anticipated first act explores the beginning of the journey of the rock opera’s hero and main character, Mrs. Henry, in a futuristic tale where the lines of what is taboo and standard are blurred. Each song acts as a chapter in Mrs. Henry’s book. Guitarist Daniel Cervantes paints the picture of the rock opera’s setting as “an ultra-sexualized reality where drugs are available on every corner and rock and roll is a normalized way of life. There is no taboo, all is equal, nothing is sacred and everything we’ve ever known is subject to change with the wind.”
The track has been released to early support from Under The Radar Magazine who have said, “Opening on hypnotic guitar lines and ethereal vocals from Mathews, the song steadily builds into a warm trance, awash in sweet swelling melodies and dreamy vibes. The resulting track calls back melodically to the band’s UK trip hop touchstones, like Massive Attack and Portishead, yet also builds in a driving pulse with contemporary production touches to offer a fresh sheen. The track feels like a slowly dawning 3 AM comedown, a feeling reflected in the longing escapist lyrics.”
