The official lyric video for ‘Blood From Above’, the new single from legendary hard rockers Stryper, can be watched below. The song is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, “Even The Devil Believes”, which will be released on September 4 via Frontiers Music.

Filled with the band’s signature riffs, harmony-laden melodies and positive themes, the 11-track project is Stryper‘s first studio album with Perry Richardson (Firehouse) on bass and background vocals.

“We’re incredibly happy to write a new chapter in the book of Stryper,” says vocalist/guitarist Michael Sweet, who has served as the band’s primary songwriter since its inception in 1983. “This album was recorded during the pandemic, and I believe the message pertains to the times we are living in so perfectly.

As previously reported, legendary hardrock band Stryper will release the first single from their upcoming album on Friday, June 26 which will be released later this year through Frontiers Music. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Stryper can’t perform either, so bands have to be creative and come up with other things to stay in touch with their fans. So here is the Virtual Meet & Greet!

Hello friends, fans, and Soldiers Under God’s Command. Let’s hang out! Last month we did our very first online Meet and Greet and we loved it. So did those who attended (as you can see from their comments below). Have we mentioned yet that Stryper fans are truly the best in the world? We really do love you all.

Well, we have decided to do 4 more of these super-awesome online Meet and Greets. Tickets are VERY limited. The description of what it provides is below but in case you overlook it one of the things we have enjoyed most is the one-on-one time we get to spend with you in a private Zoom room. Our hope is to get to know as many of you as possible on a personal level. Check it out and find a date or time that works for you and let’s hang.

And if you’re still not convinced this is super awesome, check out what a few of the fans have had to say about the first online M&G.
