“Stand Your Ground”, the long awaited new studio album of the legendary US Power Metal act JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR, will be released on August 25, 2017, on High Roller Records. The effort, which is almost 80 minutes long, has been produced by Bart Gabriel (with whom the band already worked on the previous album, “Land Of The Dead”), recorded and mixed by Kevin Burnes (DOKKEN, RAVEN), and mastered by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony Studio. The release will be available as CD, double LP, and digital download. Like in case of previous two BURNING STARR albums, its cover artwork was painted by Ken Kelly – legendary artist known from his iconic works for bands such as RAINBOW, KISS or MANOWAR.
JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR was formed in 1985, by the guitarist and founding member of VIRGIN STEELE, Jack Starr. After doing 4 classic albums in the ’80s: “Rock The American Way” (1985) “No Turning Back!” (1986), “Blaze Of Glory” (1987) and same titled one (so called “orange album” from 1989), the band returned with a new line up featuring: Jack Starr (guitar), Ned Meloni (bass guitar, ex JOE LYNN TURNER band, ex DEVIL CHILDE and PHANTOM LORD), Kenny Rhino Earl (drums, ex MANOWAR, now also in ROSS THE BOSS band) and Todd Michael Hall (vocals, also in RIOT V), and released the well received comeback album titled “Defiance” in 2009. Two years later the band released their next studio album, entitled “Land Of The Dead”, which received wide critical acclaim by fans and critics alike, but now 2017 finds BURNING STARR ready to unleash what they feel is their strongest album yet in a 30 plus year career.

Legendary American Power Metal act JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR (founded in 1984 by the ex VIRGIN STEELE / PHANTOM LORD guitar hero Jack Starr), started pre-production process of the new studio album titled “Stand Your Ground”, scheduled for recording during Spring and Summer of 2015. Some of the new song titles are: “Stronger Than Steel”, “In Another Time (From Ashes We Rise)”, “Stand Your Ground” or “To The Ends Of The Earth”. “Stand Your Ground” is a loosely based concept album, about the problems facing America and the world, and the belief that many people have, that we are heading into an era of strife and conflict.
“Stand Your Ground” will include new songs, as well as several recently unearthed, unreleased and never recorded compositions written in the ’80s. The new BURNING STARR album – like the previous one, “Land Of The Dead”, which came out on Limb Music in 2011, and which was promoted on European tour, special live show at the legendary Keep It True Festival, and headlining show at the Swordbrothers Festival (both in Germany) – will be produced by Bart Gabriel, producer known from cooperation with acts such as SACRED STEEL, SATAN’S HOST or MORTICIAN, and will be recorded by the same stellar line up featuring – next to Jack Starr: Ned Meloni on bass guitar (ex-JOE LYNN TURNER band / DEVIL CHILDE), Kenny “Rhino” Earl on drums (ex-MANOWAR, HOLYHELL), and vocalist Todd Michael Hall (RIOT V, REVERENCE). European touring lineup of the band is completed by the CRYSTAL VIPER front woman Marta Gabriel, who in BURNING STARR took over rhythm guitarist duties.
