In 2012, the musicians who had been touring as Thin Lizzy decided to record a new studio album. But wisely elected to do it under the name of Black Star Riders. This way, they avoided unfair comparisons to Lizzy’s glorious past. However, what nobody expected was that the Riders would prove to be so inspirational in their own right.

Over the past few years, the band have shown live and on record that they most certainly are not living off Lizzy’s reputation. There’s no need, because this is a caustic, accessible, thundering posse. Fronted by Ricky Warwick with Scott Gorham and Damon Johnson on guitar, Robbie Crane on bass and Chad Szeliga on drums, they now have a combination of rawness and slickness that’s got their own style punched right through it.

The quintet return to Scotland to play a full headline show at The Queen's Hall in November; support comes from Tax The Heat, Blues Pills and Dirty Thrills.
