Stryper Revises ‘Murder By Pride’ iTunes Release Dates


May 20, 2009

The Unofficial Stryper Website ( has posted a message from Dave Rose at Deep South (Deep South is Stryper’s Management):

Due to the delay in the release of the song “Murder by Pride” on iTunes last week, we have decided to keep it available for download for another week. We have learned (and by “we”, we mean everyone… Big3, Deep South, and iTunes) that adding and removing songs on iTunes is not as precise time-wise as everyone would have liked it to be. Even iTunes was quick to admit this is something brand new for them, so unforeseen “glitches” may occur, but everyone is working hard to smooth this out.

The next scheduled song to be released is “4 Leaf Clover” on May 26. In the meantime, you can still download “Murder by Pride” until then at this iTunes link.

Check back here for a revised release schedule of each song for the iTunes promotion shortly.

For those new to this promotion, Stryper is releasing a song per week through iTunes until the full album Murder by Pride is released on July 21, 2009 (exactly to-the-day, 25 years after the release of The Yellow and Black Attack EP). All involved on the technical front have asked for your patience as they refine the system to be able to deliver each song on schedule. In the meantime, your best bet is to check iTunes weekly for new Stryper songs.
