As Striker continue their “Summer of Shred” tour across North America that recently wrapped up its first leg with Death Angel earlier this May, the Canadian masters continue their road adventures with upcoming dates in Canada and USA with Anvil, Steel Panther, Holy Grail and Bewitcher (all dates listed below).

And before they continue being “On the Run” hitting cities across the continent, the band is excited to reveal their new music video in support of their latest sixth studio album “Play to Win” released this past October via their independent label Record Breaking Records.

The band explains the video:
“As an independent band we are constantly pushing ourselves to be better an go farther, "On the Run" is about just that, always moving forward with everything in your life. With this video, we took on some new challenges with our director Lindsay Robinson in programming our own light show and making all of the visual effects ourselves with very minimal computer graphics. We love how it turned out and we are excited to share it. Shred!”...

Champions in blending classic heavy metal, hard rock, and 80’s hair metal, Canadian shredders Striker’s sixth studio album “Play to Win” 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 70,000 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.

Guitarist Tim Brown comments on “Play to Win”:
“"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”.
