    Just Say Rock Presents
    STRYPER

    Just Say Rock are excited to announce the return of Stryper,who will be bringing their 25th Anniversary Tour to Australia!!! After a quarter century of unprecedented success, the righteous rockers known as Stryper have found a way to keep their high-voltage sonic fire burning. No greater evidence exists than the band's latest studio project and 10th career disc, Murder by Pride.

    Without question, Murder by Pride represents a resounding return to form for Stryper. The 12-track album is replete with smoldering dual guitars, euphoric harmonies and sing-along anthems worthy of playing full-volume with windows wide open.

    Looking back over the last 25 years, Stryper is considered a groundbreaking act by all accounts. Since the band's label debut in 1984, the quartet has sold more than 8 million albums worldwide. The first Christian rock band to enjoy decided success in the mainstream market, Stryper's RIAA certified platinum 1986 magnum opus To Hell with the Devil is listed among the "100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music" as designated by CCM Magazine. The band's popular power ballad "Honestly" became a Billboard Top 40 hit, peaking at #23.

    In conjunction with the latest release, Stryper will be heading to Australia as part of their 25th anniversary celebrations. The tour will feature greatest hits performed by all the original band members including: Michael Sweet (lead vocals, rhythm guitar); Robert Sweet (drums); Oz Fox (lead guitar); and Tim Gaines (bass) as well as newer selections with bassist Tracy Ferrie.

    One of the most mesmerizing stage acts still today, Stryper received tremendous exposure on television's MTV and VH1, paving the way for more faith-fueled bands to be considered for airplay. So come and celebrate 25 years of Stryper as they head our way in August 2010!!

    Just Say Rock interviewed Michael Sweet from Stryper over a broad range of topics and some of the answers were pretty interesting.

    didn't make it to see this show.too many other gigs on at the moment.

    I spotted To hell with the devil on vinyl at markets in paddington a few weeks ago. I didn't have enough money on me to buy it but i hope he still has next time i go back there as he also had some Judas Priest, Wasp and some other metal on vinyl as well.
