Black Star Riders Share Music Video For New Song “Better Than Saturday Night” Featuring Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott

Black Star Riders have premiered a new video for their new song “Better Than Saturday Night.” This track features Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott and it will appear on the band’s new album “Wrong Side Of Paradise,” which is set to be released on January 20, 2023.

Black Star Riders frontman Ricky Warwick commented:

“‘Better Than Saturday Night’ is a feel-good, uplifting tune about staying strong in the face of adversity, being true to yourself, and the power of positivity. I wrote it for my kids, but subliminally I think I also wrote it for myself and everyone for those days when we need to find a little bit of extra strength. We wanted to reflect the positivity, power, attitude and strength to endure sentiment in the lyrics of the song. And no better way to do that than Black Star Riders rockin’ out with the Los Angeles Roller Derby Dolls.”

He also added the following about the album:

“I am very proud of this record, Black Star Riders’ fifth release and the first with our new and exciting relationship with Earache Records. As with all BSR albums, ‘Wrong Side Of Paradise’ is an anthemic statement of intent, driven by ferocious guitars and thundering drums. I can only write about my own personal experiences, my families, my friends and how I see a world that is unraveling and changing faster than we can comprehend. That being said, I’m a firm believer in the power of positivity, something that echoes throughout this album.”

In other news, the band have also announced a UK tour with Michael Monroe and Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons. Warwick said the following about that:

“Can you believe 2023 is 10 years of Black Star Riders? How time flies while you are having fun! We decided to do something special to commemorate this occasion. For the U.K. tour only, to coincide with the album’s release, we will be bringing back the legendary Scott Gorham (guitar) and Jimmy DeGrasso (drums) for the dates to make them extra special!

“As we all know, the worldwide pandemic has changed so many things in all our lives, and when we brought Christian Martucci into the fold in 2018, we had planned to work the BSR cycle in rotation with Christian’s Corey Taylor / Stone Sour gig so he could do both. The two-year break in live music has unfortunately put paid to this plan and Christian has had to leave Black Star Riders to concentrate on his work with Corey. We wish him all the best and he will forever remain part of the BSR family.”
