Edmonton shredders Striker are unleashing their latest music video Pass Me By in support of their huge hails horns news that they have been invited to perform at this year’s Bang Your Head Festival in Germany on July 13th.
Guitarist Tim Brown comments: “What’s more fun than shredding on a roof and smashing shit? Playing Bang Your Head Open Air!”
Watch Striker go VHS retro and demolish the headbanging masses below!
Pass Me By is lifted from Striker’s Juno Award nominated 2017 self-titled album released via their indie label Record Breaking Records. The album features nine shredding tracks that are all killer and no filler to continue the band’s classic mix of heavy metal to follow 2016’s highly praised Stand In The Fire. The album landed at number nine in Sentinel Daily’s Top 100 Albums of 2017 and was described by our own Scott Adams thus: “absolutely everything on offer here is going to delight your metal sensibilities”…
The album was self-recorded by the band (Dan Clearly (vocals), Tim Brown (lead/rhythm guitars), William Wallace (bass) and Adam Brown (drums) with a little help from Randy Black (Primal Fear, Bif Naked, Annihilator) who filled in on drums while Adam was away during recording) along with mixing done by genius Frederik Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, In Flames, Opeth).
Striker had quite the bullet train ride in 2017, supporting their fifth studio album on 70,000 Tons of Metal, touring Europe with Sonata Arctica along with trekking across North America with Dark Tranquillity and Warbringer.
