STRIKER Wins Opening Slot For METALLICA Support Act This Weekend - Aug. 17, 2012

According to The Calgary Herald, Canadian metallers STRIKER will support METALLICA at two sold-out shows on August 17 and August 18 at Rexall Place in their hometown of Edmonton, Alberta.

STRIKER landed the opening slot for METALLICA after winning a contest on radio station The Bear. There were more than 200 applicants, all sorted through by Bear music director Lochlin Cross with help from afternoon drive show host Scott McCord, who announced STRIKER as the winner on Wednesday evening.

"One reason why they stood out is that they come from the roots of where METALLICA came from, in that they have a North American twist on the early '80s new wave of British heavy metal," McCord explained to The Calgary Herald. "So many bands that pay homage to that do so in a wink-wink, nudge-nudge kind of way, sort of clowning around. But with STRIKER, there's sincerity to their music and the way they present themselves. They wear straight, tight jeans, and have these gleaming white high-tops; that kind of authenticity shines through. Some bands pretend to be what they are, but these guys mean it. They're going to make the city proud."

STRIKER vocalist Dan Cleary had the following to say about this momentous event: "We are so stoked to be opening for a band that had such an impact on us growing up! This is insane! And in our hometown, too! This could easily be the biggest show we get to play ever, and we are so grateful! So pumped!!!"

STRIKER's new album, "Armed To The Teeth", was released last month via Napalm Records. In addition, the CD "Eyes In The Night" and the "Road Warrior" EP were re-released the same month.

STRIKER recently posted a new song, "Forever", helmed by legendary producer Michael Wagener (ACCEPT, METALLICA, OZZY OSBOURNE, DOKKEN). The track can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
