If you haven’t heard yet, Canadian heavy metal powerhouse Striker is back from the grave!
Last month, with rumours spreading of the perennial Sentinel Daily favourites calling it quits after they posted an image that was titled RIP Striker 2007-2021 on their social media, fans began speculating on their future. In the end, it was all made to prepare them for Striker’s new single Deathwish, a track that has their signature sound of putting a modern twist on classic heavy metal mixed with eighties AOR.
The single is also the band’s introductory track with new drummer Jonathan Webster and bassist Pete Klassen who joined the lineup in 2019 along with it being their first of many new recordings to come since releasing their Juno award-winning album 2018’s Play To Win.
Today, Striker unveils their music video for Deathwish, which can be viewed at below!
“The world’s already on fire, you might as well light a smoke on it and kick back and watch. While you’re at it, feast your eyes on our new music video for Deathwish.” adds the band.
Deathwish can be streamed and downloaded on Spotify and Apple Music.
In additional news, Striker will be performing their first and only hometown show of 2021 in Edmonton, AB on November 27th at The Starlite Room with support from Riot City, Tymo and Tower Hill.
Champions in blending classic heavy metal, hard rock, and eighties hair metal, Striker have been making shredtacular anthems since 2007. The band has toured multiple times across Europe and North America along with festival appearances at 70,000 Tons of Metal, Bang Your Head Festival (Germany), and more to add to their almost thousand shows performed in their decade-plus career.
