2016 was a kick ass year for NWOTHM heavyweights Striker.  The Canadian quartet released one of my favorite albums this year, Stand In The Fire.  When I missed my chance to see them this year I figured I had missed the boat.  Well, based on the news I heard today, Striker will be returning to the road in 2017 as well as releasing their fifth (as of yet untitled) album on their own Record Breaking Records Label.

Striker will be on tour in the United States from January 15 to February 15 to go with the pre-order campaign for the new album, they will as well as provide direct support for Sonata Arctica in Europe from February 20 to April 10, with more tours to be announced shortly.

About Don de Leaumont

Don (aka. The Brainfart) has been a heavy metal fan since hearing it for the first time in 1983. Don is also repsonsible for all of the typos, shitty grammar, and kick ass content on this site. Don likes cheap beer, whiskey, Coca Cola Icees, going to shows, and hanging with his kick ass wife, two cats and dog. He originally wanted to name his dog Shandi but his wife said, "No fucking way."
