Stryper Continue To Spread Their Message With New Live CD/DVD
September 15, 2014
Stryper is back with their latest release, a live CD/DVD combination called ‘Live At The Whisky’. The live recording will be available on September 19th in Europe and September 23rd in North America via Frontiers Records and is a must have for any fan.
The concert was recorded at a sold-out show last November at the famous Whisky A Go Go on Sunset Blvd. The 16-track collection documents the band’s first show in support of their latest critically acclaimed release, ‘No More Hell To Pay’ — which was voted 2013 album of the year by Sleaze Roxx readers.
From the show opener “Legacy” to the final notes of show finale “Soldiers Under Command”, ‘Live At The Whisky’ documents Stryper’s rich musical legacy that spans over 30 years. The original line-up comprised of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitars), Robert Sweet (drums), Oz Fox (guitars) and Tim Gaines (bass) showcase the musicianship and songs that garnered the band a huge fan base in the mainstream world and the Christian market. ‘Live At The Whisky’ was produced by Michael Sweet.
“We’ve always wanted to record a live album that captures the rawness of the band and this is it! We couldn’t be more thrilled then to have captured this at the infamous Whisky, where it all began for us. After 30 years, we’re still proud to do what we do and hopefully it shows. This is an intimate performance, the way it should be.”
Stryper is one of the top Christian rock bands of all time. Comprised of the original line-up, Stryper has been rocking since 1984, and is responsible for such ’80s metal classic albums as ‘Soldiers Under Command’, ‘To Hell With The Devil’ and ‘In God We Trust’. Stryper is also the first band to ever have two songs in MTV’s Top 10 simultaneously with their hits “Free” and “Honestly”. After a sabbatical for much of the 1990’s, Stryper returned strong in the early 21st century. To date, the Dove Award-winning and Grammy nominated band has sold upwards of 10 million records worldwide.
