Black Star Riders – Ain’t The End Of The World


Black Star Riders are thrilled to share their brand new single “Ain’t The End Of The World”, out today. The second single is taken from the forthcoming fourth album “Another State Of Grace”, set for release on 6th September 2019, via Nuclear Blast, and it is accompanied by a sharp and unconventional animated video.

“Ain’t The End Of The World” is yet another example of Black Star Riders’ skillful songwriting and distinctive sound.The track displays the band’s unique sonic dimension, in which Scott Gorham’s guitar intertwines with Christian Martucci’s, the rhythmic section solidly sustains the melody throughout the song, and Ricky Warwick’s powerful and raw vocals harmoniously bind music and lyrics.

Frontman Ricky Warwick comments: “Ain’t The End Of The World“ is trademark Black Star Riders.  Showcasing the dual guitars of Christian Martucci and Scott Gorham perfectly. It’s a song of hope, positivity and seeing the light at the end of a dark tunnel in a world of uncertainty.”

“Another State Of Grace” is a stunning collection of anthemic rock songs that will further develop the band’s burgeoning reputation as one of the most essential acts within today’s rock music scene. Recorded at Sphere Studios in Burbank, California in February 2019, the album was produced & mixed by Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Uriah Heep).

“Another State Of Grace” is available on CD, vinyl and vinyl picture disc, limited edition box set and limited edition light green vinyl. Album pre-order is available HERE
