Vocalist/guitarist Michael Sweet of Christian hard rockers Stryper will perform his faith-based “storytellers” solo acoustic show in churches around the world this year. The performances are a combination of Stryper classics, new solo material, and notable praise and worship songs.
If you are interested in Michael Sweet performing at your church, please have your church leaders contact Dave Rose at Dave [at] DeepSouthEntertainment.com. View the promotional video below.
Sweet entered the studio last month to begin recording his new solo album. He is also writing his first “book/autobiography,” which he promises “will outline my life and give you a page-by-page layout of the early years, the ups and downs of being in a Christian rock band, behind-the-scenes stories of what really goes on ‘behind the scenes’ of a successful Christian rock band (good and bad), getting through the toughest battle of all, joining the legendary classic rock band Boston, and much much more.”
Sweet‘s last solo album, Touched, was released on December 3, 2007 exclusively through Michael‘s official web site, MichaelSweet.com. The CD, which included reworked versions of four Stryper songs, was not made available in stores.
Stryper recently released short audio clips of Bleeding From Inside Out and Blackened, the two new tracks which will be included on a collection of re-recorded versions of the band’s classic songs, to be released in the summer of 2012. The CD will contain a total of 16 cuts — two from The Yellow And Black Attack, six from Soldiers Under Command, six from To Hell With The Devil, as well as the two aforementioned new tracks.
