JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR — the band led by former VIRGIN STEELE guitarist Jack Starr — will play an exclusive show at the 2013 edition of the Keep It True festival in Germany. The group’s setlist will include classic songs from the early JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR albums, songs taken from the band’s new CD, “Land Of The Dead”, and select cuts from Starr‘s previous bands VIRGIN STEELE, PHANTOM LORD and GUARDIANS OF THE FLAME. The entire show will be filmed for a special DVD release, which will be out in 2014 — the 30th anniversary of JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR. Also in the works are European live shows for 2012.
“Land Of The Dead” was released on November 11 via Limb Music. The CD was produced by Bart Gabriel (CRYSTAL VIPER, SACRED STEEL, LONEWOLF), and features cover artwork by Ken Kelly (RAINBOW, KISS, MANOWAR).
“Land Of The Dead” was recorded by the same lineup that was responsible for 2009’s “Defiance” album: Starr on guitar, Ned Meloni on bass, Kenny “Rhino” Earl (ex-MANOWAR) on drums, and Todd Hall on vocals. The CD also features guest appearances by David Shankle and Ross The Boss (both ex-MANOWAR) on lead guitar, and Marta Gabriel (CRYSTAL VIPER) on grand piano and keyboards.
