Following a series of fantastically well received live dates both in the UK and Europe Thunderstick are back with new recordings. Led by the NWOBHM icon Barry Graham Purkis (aka Thunderstick), and fronted by the mesmerizing lead vocalist RavenBlackwing, the band have recorded a brand new studio album which is set for release in October 2023. The album will be available in both CD and digital formats and will be the bands first new studio album since 2017.
GO SLEEP WITH THE ENEMY ( I Dare Ya)’ – BAND TALK
Lead singer, RAVEN BLACKWING
I, along with the rest of the band wanted to show that the material on the new album follows an altogether weightier vein. Releasing a single from the album in the form of a song that people already know and love played live seemed a perfect way of introducing everyone to our new direction. I hope you love it the way we do.
Thunderstick’s alter ego and creator, BARRY GRAHAM PURKIS
‘Go Sleep With The Enemy ( I Dare Ya)‘ is a four minute tale of infidelity and the wrath of a woman spurned. Although released before on the album ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’ and as a track on the very limited edition EP ‘The Singles’ I wanted to re visit this particular track by way of demonstrating the heavier aspects of the new band that make up the forthcoming album . I felt this track was the ideal vehicle to do that.
With the new album now completed and ready for an October release I am of the opinion that the collection of songs on it are the strongest Thunderstick have ever recorded!
