The track describes the condition in which we all currently live in: a world where economical interest prevails over the common good; a world where we are forced to face constant uncertainties. As the band says: “vote for a clown … you have a circus”. The music perfectly reflects the content: the pounding rhythm of each verse echoes the oppression of the war machine; the heavier and more aggressive chorus underlines the frustration we feel rising every day.
In The Shadow of The War Machine” is taken from the band’s latest record “Another State Of Grace” which reached#14 in the national chart and #1 in the rock chart. The record isa stunning collection of anthemic rock songs recorded at Sphere Studios in Burbank, California in February 2019 and produced & mixed by Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Uriah Heep).
In addition, Black Star Riders are also thrilled to announce they will perform as special guests on Saturday July 18th at Ramblin’ Man Fair 2020. The band will share the stage with the likes of: Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tom Keifer and Clutch.
Front-man Ricky Warwick comments: “Ramblin’ Man Fair is a fantastic festival! Black Star Riders will be making their return to the festival on Saturday 18thJuly as special guest to legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd … We can’t wait to come back! We’ll see you there.”
