Longtime supporter Joe Elliott, vocalist of Def Leppard says “I’ve been an ardent supporter ever since they started their journey having moved away from being Thin Lizzy and becoming a legitimate band in their own right. For me, this is by far their best effort to date”


Vocalist Ricky Warwick says, “This has probably been the most enjoyable experience in the studio I have had making a record. The vibe and commitment the boys brought into this was stellar. Our most anthemic and soulful album to date. I’m very proud and excited for people to hear Another State Of Grace !”

The band previous album, “Heavy Fire”, was released in 2017 and enjoyed widespread fan and critical acclaim.  The album enjoyed success in many countries and went on to score multiple high chart placings & radio playlists, including a career high of charting at #6 in the UK album charts, radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 2, Planet Rock Radio, dozens of regional rock ILRs as well as multiple BBC regional stations.


They toured extensively in support of the release with notable appearances on the sold out Rock Legend’s VI cruise out of Florida, alongside Sammy Hagar and Bad Company and very successful tour of North and South America with metal legends Judas Priest.


Previous albums ‘All Hell Breaks Loose’, ‘The Killer Instinct’ and ‘Heavy Fire’ have paved the way for Black Star Riders to be recognized as a powerful force in contemporary Rock n’ Roll. ‘Another State of Grace’ will be once again released by Nuclear Blast.
