Black Stars Riders have released a lyric video for Soldierstown. Taken from their album The Killer Instinct, it's timed to coincide with the band's UK and Ireland tour with Whitesnake and Def Leppard, which kicks off in Dublin on December 6.
"Soldierstown is a song with a dark and poignant lyric tempered with a huge Celtic guitar riff," says singer Ricky Warwick. "Sometimes pulling the covers over your head is not enough!"
"To say we are excited by being part of the Whitesnake and Def Leppard bill is an understatement," he continues. "It's always great to go on tour with your friends, and Black Star Riders will have been on tour in Europe four weeks prior to this... so we'll be well-oiled and fired up for it!"

The Temperance Movement have released a video for their cover of Blur track Tender.
It was recorded at London’s iconic Abbey Road Studios when the band decided to pay tribute to a musical movement that influence them during their formative years.
Drummer Damon Wilson says: “Britpop was possibly England's last great music revolution. We wanted to celebrate those heady days when guitar music ruled the waves and people were excited around the world by British music. With a nod to The Beatles, we decided Abbey Road Studios would be the perfect destination.
“Tender is something of a rarity for Blur, with its echoes of American gospel. It resonated with our love of soul and roots music.”
