Some video highlights from Stryper‘s Londonderry Acoustic Performance is available in the video below.
Late last month the band reported the following:
‘We’re ready to rock with all of our South American fans and we’re gearing up for an amazing SA tour! We are blessed to have this opportunity and even more blessed to have the chance to visit you once again! We look forward to seeing you all night after night and remember, The Yellow & Black Attack is back! God Bless you all’
Dates and locations are listed below.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Stryper will not be touring at all in 2015. We’re letting this be known so our fans can plan accordingly and hopefully come out and see us this year. So if you’re in the area come on out and get ready to rock!
“No More Hell To Pay” stormed the charts in November 2013 debuting at #3 on the Current Hard Music Albums and Top Hard Music Albums charts, #6 on the Top Current Rock Album charts, #33 on the Billboard Top 200 Current Albums and #35 on the Billboard Top 200 selling over 9500 copies the first week. Stryper also regained their dominance on the Christian charts landing at #2 on the Contemporary Christian Albums and #3 on the Billboard Top Christian/Gospel Albums. “No More Hell To Pay” also reached #1 on the iTunes Top Rock Album Charts and #8 on the iTunes Top Album Charts when it was released on November 5th, 2013.
Stryper is one of the top Christian rock bands of all time. Comprised of the original line-up, Stryper has been rocking since 1984, and is responsible for such ’80s metal classic albums as “Soldiers Under Command”, “To Hell With The Devil” and “In God We Trust”. In fact, Stryper is the first band to ever have two songs in MTV’s Top 10 simultaneously with their hits ’Free’ and ‘Honestly.’ After a sabbatical for much of the 1990′s, Stryper returned strong in the early 21st century. To date, the Dove Award-winning and Grammy nominated band has sold upwards of 10 million records worldwide.
“No More Hell To Pay” was released on November 1st in Europe and November 5th in North America via Frontiers Records. The effort was made available in two formats — standard CD and deluxe digipak featuring exclusive video content. Produced by Stryper guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet himself, the set features some of Stryper‘s strongest and heaviest material ever.

Last month Stryper released a concert CD/DVD combination called “Live At The Whisky” (Europe on September 19th. via Frontiers & North America on September 23rd). The live recording was captured at a sold-out show last November at the legendary Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, California. The 16-track collection documents the band’s first show in support of its latest, critically acclaimed release, “No More Hell To Pay”.
