Canadian metal band Striker are turning to Kickstarter for their seventh studio album, ULTRAPOWER, produced by Josh Schroeder. After becoming an independent band in 2016, Striker are now calling on fans to support their latest endeavor. Backers can access exclusive rewards, including special edition CDs, vinyl, and merchandise. The upcoming album is set for release on January 19, 2024, and marks the band’s latest lineup with the addition of guitarist John Simon Fallon. Accompanying the announcement is a music video for their song “Best of the Best of the Best.”


Vocalist Dan Cleary comments:

“We are stoked to be back with our 7th full-length album ULTRAPOWER! This time we have launched a Kickstarter to help us release the album independently with some excellent exclusive merch and rewards. What makes ULTRAPOWER different? After 3 self-produced albums, we decided it was time to try something new. Talking NEW NEW. Like, why not go record with a deathcore producer? Yeah but who? Why Josh Schroeder of course. Isn’t that the guy who did Lorna Shore? Why would you go to him, isn’t that too heavy for you guys?’ you say. Guess you’ll find out!”


On the track, Cleary adds:

“It’s mullets, it’s jet skis, it’s shredding. What more do you want?”
