Champions in blending classic heavy metal, hard rock, and 80ís hair metal, Canadian shredders Striker announce they will be unleashing their sixth studio album Play To Win on October 26th via their independent label Record Breaking Records.

Revealing the artwork and tracklisting, the album features 10 fist pounding shredtacular anthems produced by the band plus mixed and mastered by Hendrik Udd (Firewind, Powerwolf, Hammerfall, Delain).

The album follows their 2017 self-titled full length that the band supported with tours across Europe and North America with Sonata Arctica, Dark Tranquility, and Warbringer along with festival appearances at 70000 Tons of Metal, Bang Your Head Festival (Germany) and more to add to their almost 1000 shows performed in their decade plus career. That fifth studio album also garnered them a nomination from Canada's Juno awards, the country's highest music prize, along with wins at the Edmonton Music Awards and Western Canadian Awards.

In support of the release of Play To Win, Striker are launching a crowd funding campaign via their official website beginning August 9th.

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 sixth album and third 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 fifth 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."

I dig these guys, although I'm getting my fill of NWOTHM anymore. I'll put this on my list, but Lord knows if or when I'll get around to picking it up.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me, and it'll happen to you, too.
