Stryper plan to re-record more past songs including from ‘In God We Trust’ and ‘Against The Law’
In a recent interview with Rock Confidential, Stryper frontman Michael Sweet was asked whether it is in the plans to re-record more songs from the band’s catalog.
Sweet replied: “It is. We’ve always wanted to do that with five or six songs from In God We Trust, five or six from Against The Law. People might wonder why we’d do that. I really believe, and we’ll have to prove it, that we can outdo the production on those two albums to make it more modern, more in-your-face, and today. Same thing we did with Second Coming. We’ll add a couple of more songs from Yellow And Black Attack. We only did two from that album on Second Coming, so maybe we’ll do “From Wrong To Right” and “Co’mon Rock” or something and then add a couple of new songs.”
In terms of first releasing the song “Take It To The Cross” from Stryper‘s upcoming studio album God Damn Evil, Sweet advised: “That song is completely by itself stylistically. It’s unlike any other song on the album. That was our answer to the people that wanted something that bordered on thrash and was a little edgier. “Sorry” is a little more of a groove, straight-ahead hooky tune. That’s probably to be more expected of Stryper. Every song on this album is completely different. From “Lost” to “You Don’t Even Know Me” to “The Valley” to “God Damn Evil.” Every song is different. A different tempo, different feel, different groove but yet they all work together for the good. We can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
