Legendary hard rockers Stryper have released a new single, ‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil’. The song will appear on their upcoming studio album, which is due later this year via Frontiers Music. The follow-up to 2020’s “Even The Devil Believes” was produced by guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet and was once again recorded at SpiritHouse Recording Studios in Northampton, Massachusetts.

Sweet stated about the track: “‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil’ was, believe it or not, inspired by the health issues that Oz [Fox, guitar] and I have been faced with. Despite our limitations, we were able to deliver an album that is powerful and relevant and ‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil’ is the perfect track to showcase that. We could not be more excited about this album! The best is yet to come.”

‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil’ follows last month’s successful release of another new single, ‘Rise To The Call’, which has been receiving praise from press and fans alike in the buildup to Stryper‘s new LP. The effort firmly continues the trend established over the band’s last few albums, with Stryper growing heavier while also maintaining their trademark melodies, virtuoso guitar playing, and air-tight rhythms.

When ‘Rise To The Call’ was first released, Sweet commented: “Although we have faced many obstacles over the past few years, we were somehow able to rise above everything that stood in our way and deliver (what I believe to be) our strongest release to date.

Legendary hard rockers Stryper have released a new single and lyric video, ‘Rise To The Call’. The song is taken from their upcoming album, which is set for release later this year via Frontiers Music.

Sweet commented: “Although we have faced many obstacles over the past few years, we were somehow able to rise above everything that stood in our way and deliver (what I believe to be) our strongest release to date.

“Our new album encompasses everything that defines who we are: faith, guitar power, melodies and harmonies, consistency and longevity.

“We still have so much left to say musically and lyrically and this album showcases that. We couldn’t do it without the fans worldwide. Those who have stood by us through it all, for almost 40 years!

Stryper frontman Michael Sweet checked in with the following:

I’ve always wanted to record a “worship” album yet do my own interpretation of one. I always told myself that when that day comes, I would break all the rules and not do anything that sounds like every other worship album. You know me, I’m a bit of a rebel when it comes to how I like roll:-)

So, I did what I’ve wanted to do my entire life – I’ve made a worship album that breaks all the molds, all the stereotypes. Every song is different and it’s my own spin on what I think a worship album should be – an emotional and musical journey that inspires you to draw closer to God yet gives you a totally unique listening experience.
