Stryper will release their new album, “Even The Devil Believes”, on September 4 via Frontiers Music. The 11-track project is Stryper‘s first studio album with Perry Richardson (Firehouse) on bass and background vocals.
Sweet, who also produced the new album, told “Fox 17 Rock And Review” about the effort (see video below): “This album, I kept saying, ‘It’s a metal album. It’s a metal album,’ and it is. It’s for sure a hundred percent metal album. But at the same time, we really wanted to incorporate more melodies and bring back a little bit more of the melodic side of the band as well as the edgy side of the band. So, these are metal songs, but with lots of melodies and vocal parts going on.”
Sweet went on to say that his next year is “pretty booked solid” despite the fact that live concerts are still mostly prohibited, with no end in sight.
