Stryper remastered album w/ bonus tracks or box set of unreleased songs yet to be discussed possibility
Stryper frontman Michael Sweet was interviewed by Angel Alamo at the M3 Rock Festival back in early May 2018 and was asked whether the band will ever release a box set of unreleased material or a remastered album with bonus tracks.
Sweet opined (with slight edits): “I mean that is certainly a possibility. We have never discussed that. I think we are at a point where we have enough music to do something like that. We have quite a catalog and loud music so that’s something that we could do but it would have to make sense though. It would have to be in demand and people would have to want it. For us to put it together and go through the effort of making that happen in today’s music world is questionable.”
In terms of whether it is easier to get along as band members as years go by, Sweet advised (with slight edits): “We figure out how to get along as a band after spending so many years together. Like anything, you’re dealing with four different personalities so you have to communicate. You have to learn how to deal with things and handle things in a professional and adult manner. I think over 34 years, we figured out how to do that. It gets tough sometimes. You know, like someone has to get on me about something. I have to pick up after someone. You know what I mean? Those little tiny things that really don’t matter. What they do, we go through that like any other band, which is just like a marriage….”
