The Killer Instinct will be the name of the second studio album by hard rock supergroup BLACK STAR RIDERS, due out in North America in early 2015 on Nuclear Blast Entertainment. “Life's not fair, never has been, never will,” states BLACK STAR RIDERS vocalist & songwriter Ricky Warwick. “Sometimes you have to live with a killer instinct just to survive in the ongoing pursuit of happiness… because nobody can do for you what you should be doing for yourself.” After touring the globe in support of their world-acclaimed 2013 debut album All Hell Breaks Loose, the band entered the studio in Nashville, Tennessee this past October with heralded producer Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, FOO FIGHTERS, ALICE IN CHAINS, MASTODON) to record their sophomore release. Creative forces flowed and the energy in the studio was dynamic. “Nick Raskulinecz came riding out of the sunset like a Viking warrior, with his record collection and arsenal of killer guitars and amplifiers and proved to be the world class producer we had heard so much about. Indeed, the rumors are all true,” shares BLACK STAR RIDERS guitarist & songwriter Damon Johnson. “There's no doubt that Ricky [Warwick] and I had written a sizable number of songs, but Nick patiently walked through the full song list with the entire band and made sure we focused on the material to best represent BLACK STAR RIDERS in 2015.” Track listing for The Killer Instinct is: 01. The Killer Instinct 02. Bullet Blues 03. Finest Hour 04. Soldierstown 05. Charlie I Gotta Go 06. Blindsided 07. Through The Motions 08. Sex, Guns & Gasoline 09. Turn In Your Arms 10. You Little Liar BLACK STAR RIDERS will co-headline a 16-date tour throughout the U.K. with EUROPE beginning in early March 2015 and will return to the U.S. to perform on the Monsters Of Rock cruise to the Caribbean in April 2015.
