BSR frontman Ricky Warwick said of the tour announcement:
“It seems like ages since we did the Leppard / Whitesnake tour so we are all really looking forward to be back out on the road with BSR. Our third album will be out just prior to the dates so it’s going to be great to play tracks from that along with favourites from the first two records also. Having my old friends from Backyard Babies, Gun and The Amorettes out with us too is just icing on the cake to make a great tour!”
The band are currently in the studio in Nashville, once again with producer Nick Raskulinecz, putting the finishing touches to ‘Heavy Fire’. Guitarist Scott Gorham said: “It’s great to be back with Nick. After such a great job on ‘The Killer Instinct’, it was a no brainer to continue the relationship and this album is going to blow everyone away”.
