As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, Black Star Riders will release their new album, “Another State of Grace”, on September 6th 2019. Recorded at Sphere Studios in Burbank, California in February 2019, the album was produced & mixed by Jay Ruston (STONE SOUR, ANTHRAX, URIAH HEEP). It is now available for pre-order on CD, vinyl and vinyl picture disc, limited edition boxset and limited edition light green vinyl.

‘Ain’t The End Of The World’ is the second single is taken from the forthcoming fourth album. It is accompanied by a sharp and unconventional animated video, which can be viewed here:

‘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.”
