Jimmy Kay and Alan Dixon from Canada’s The Metal Voice spoke with Stryper front man Michael Sweet. Sweet spoke about the New Stryper album, a new song that will feature Death Metal growls, new bassist Perry Richardson‘s faith and the shooting of the upcoming Stryper Documentary. Listen to the chat in the video below.
Stryper will return to SpiritHouse Recording Studios in Northampton, Massachusetts on January 10 to begin mixing its new album for a tentative April release via Frontiers Music Srl. The follow-up to 2015’s “Fallen”, which will be mastered on January 15, will mark Stryper‘s first effort since the addition of former Firehouse bassist Perry Richardson. Perry joined the band as the replacement for Stryper‘s longtime bassist Tim Gaines, who was fired from the group earlier this year.
In a new post on Stryper‘s Facebook page, guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet writes: “Some people like heavy, some people like semi-heavy, some people like not so heavy. We’ve done it all over the years — really heavy to really light.
