In support of the release of Play To Win, STRIKER are launching a crowd funding campaign via their official website www.striker-metal.com beginning August today.
Guitarist Tim Brown comments: “Play To Win: if you want to win you have to play the game. Find the rules and break them. This is our 6th album and 3rd independent release. If we followed the rules and listened to the industry people we’d have gone absolutely nowhere. Play To Win is about listening to yourself, following your own path, and playing that 5th ace hidden in your sleeve. This album is designed to light a fire under your ass and get you moving, and we made sure to get the most modern, ear melting sounds possible. It’s all about where metal is going, not where it has been, and this is our soundtrack to success.”
The band’s new lyric video for their first single “Heart of Lies” can be heard HERE.
