BURNING STARR'S NEW ALBUM

Published in News

PRESS RELEASE: "Stand Your Ground", the long awaited new studio album of the legendary US Power Metal act Jack Starr’s Burning Starr , will be released on August 25, 2017, on High Roller Records. The effort, which is almost 80 minutes long, has been produced by Bart Gabriel (with whom the band already worked on the previous album, "Land Of The Dead"), recorded and mixed by Kevin Burnes (Dokken, Raven), and mastered by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony Studio. The release will be available as CD, double LP, and digital download. Like in case of previous two BURNING STARR albums, its cover artwork was painted by Ken Kelly - legendary artist known from his iconic works for bands such as Rainbow, KISS or Manowar.

 
Jack Starr’s Burning Starr was formed in 1985, by the guitarist and founding member of Virgin Steele, Jack Starr. After doing 4 classic albums in the '80s: "Rock The American Way" (1985) "No Turning Back!" (1986), "Blaze Of Glory" (1987) and same titled one (so called "orange album" from 1989), the band returned with a new line up featuring: Jack Starr (guitar), Ned Meloni (bass guitar, ex Joe Lynn Turner band, ex Devil Childe and Phantom Lord), Kenny Rhino Earl (drums, ex Manowar, now also in Ross The Boss band) and Todd Michael Hall (vocals, also in Riot V), and released the well received comeback album titled "Defiance" in 2009. Two years later the band released their next studio album, entitled "Land Of The Dead", which received wide critical acclaim by fans and critics alike, but now 2017 finds Burning Starr ready to unleash what they feel is their strongest album yet in a 30 plus year career.

According to guitarist and leader of Burning Starr, Jack Starr, the band's new studio album "Stand Your Ground" is almost ready, while in two weeks the mixing process will begin. "6 more lead guitar tracks to go and then we are done with my part of the Stand Your Ground album and effectively we are done with the recording part of our new album , The next part will be the mixing and mastering . This album is really coming out great and I sincerely believe that it will be the best Burning Starr album yet, yesterday Ned Meloni told me that the lead guitar work on this album is the best I have ever done, I hope this is true but I do know that the drumming by Kenny Rhino Earl the vocals by Todd Michael Hall and the bass playing by Ned Meloni is the best I have heard from them , 2 more weeks and then and then it goes down the assembly line to the capable hands of Bart Gabriel. PS we got one more done today, now there are five left YAY".

At the hotel where Burning Starr are staying there’s anxiety and agony about the interviews we have scheduled to do with Jack Starr, and Todd Michael Hall, as we have the luxury of the camera, but the extra pressure of the sound check before the show in Athens. Jack shows up extremely cool with a beer in his hand and tells us that he’ll be back after they finish soundcheck to talk. Indeed, he is back and the he is firing with all cylinders during the interview talking extensively about everything, the new album, his band, Virgin Steele, even Ritchie Blackmore… Enjoy – and don’t miss the video!

Amazing news for all the Jack Starr fans as the legendary guitarist has already prepared his new album called "Stand Your Ground" that will hit the streets in 2014. Also, there are various reissues on the way...here's the press release:

Since the comeback of Jack Starr's Burning Starr in 2009 with the brilliant studio album called "Defiance", both band's career and Jack Starr's (ex-Virgin Steele) solo career have been on the rise. In 2010 the band signed with Limb Music, a German label who promptly released next studio album "Land Of The Dead" in 2011. The album received rave reviews and is considered by many to be one of the best albums of 2011. The album featured the exact same lineup as "Defiance", including the fiery drumming of the ex-Manowar drummer Rhino, the spot on vocals of Todd Micheal Hall and the solid bass playing of Ned Meloni -  long time member and songwriting contributor of the band - and guest appearances by Ross The Boss (ex-Manowar, Shakin' Street, Dictators) and David Shankle (ex-Manowar, DSG). One year later, Skol Records reissued the legendary and classic second Burning Starr album "No Turning Back!" from 1986, with brand new front cover artwork, and which is often listed as one of the very best US Power Metal albums.

The recent activities of Jack Starr also include guest solos on new album of the Australian band Dragonsclaw, Lebanese band ZIX where he played on a track with former Black Sabbath singer Tony Martin, and various compilations including the Italian tribute album to Strana Officina, and Texas metallers' Witchmark debut album. Earlier in 2013  the band recorded live DVD at the Keep It True Festival in Germany. 2013 also saw the re-release of "Out Of The Darkness", the much acclaimed solo album from 1984 that featured Jack Starr and Rhett Forrester - former singer of RIOT, and members of The Rods and Rainbow. Even more reissues are planned for this year: the two legendary PHANTOM LORD albums and Devil Childe mini album, that were recorded in the '80s by Jack Starr with Ned Meloni (another Jack Starr's Burning Starr member) and Joe Hasselvander (Raven, Pentagram), will be reissued by Italian label Minotauro Records. In 2014 another reissue will see the light of the day: the ultra rare same titled album from 1989 (so called "The Orange Album"), will be released in CD format in its original form first time ever, with all tracks recorded during that particular session - mastered from the original tapes - and with fat booklet with many previously unseen photos.

Jack Starr and the boys have been busy, but the real news is the impending release of an all new original album scheduled for 2014 entitled "Stand Your Ground", which promises to be a fire breathing monster of an album. As Jack has said in a recent interview: "Some bands from the eighties lose steam and make albums that are less and less powerful as the years go by ”. Burning Starr does the opposite: as the years go by, our  albums are getting heavier, better played and feature stronger songwriting. The band will be back in Europe in 2014 playing festivals and clubs in a full tour that promises to see Burning Starr doing what they do best: delivering Classic US Power Metal with virtuoso playing and melodic songwriting that rocks. In closing, Burning Starr is  stronger than ever, and will have the same lineup for the next album, featuring the pillar crumbling vocals of Todd Michael Hall, the bombastic drumming of Rhino, Ned Meloni's killer  bass playing, and once again Jack Starr will cement his reputation as one of Heavy Metal's most gifted guitarists and songwriters. Burning Starr keep the Metal flame burning brighter than ever!
