2019 is officially STRIKER's 'Summer of Shred' as they will hitting the road this summer for multiple North American tour dates with DEATH ANGEL, STEEL PANTHER, HOLY GRAIL and BEWITCHER. Their shredding adventures will begin in Oklahoma City, OK on May 14th for US dates with DEATH ANGEL followed by a headlining show for Calgary's East Town Get Down Festival that includes ANVIL. STRIKER will then support STEEL PANTHER for their Canadian dates from June 14th to June 25th and then kick off a short headlining tour from July 2nd to July 7th before joining HOLY GRAIL and BEWITCHER for the 'Deadly Ripping North American Tour', which will invade 21 cities in USA and Canada from from July 12th to August 4th. STRIKER is touring in support of their sixth studio album Play To Win released this past October via their independent label Record Breaking Records.

Champions in blending classic heavy metal, hard rock, and 80’s hair metal, Canadian shredders STRIKER's sixth studio album Play To Win features 10 fist pounding shredtacular anthems produced by the band plus mixed and mastered by Hendrik Udd (FIREWIND, POWERWOLF, HAMMERFALL, DELAIN). The album follows their 2017 self-titled full length that the band supported with tours across Europe and North America with SONATA ARCTICA, DARK TRANQUILLITY, and WARBRINGER along with festival appearances at 70,000 Tons of Metal, Bang Your Head Festival (Germany) and more to add to their almost 1000 shows performed in their decade-plus career. That fifth studio album also garnered them a nomination from Canada's JUNO awards, the country's highest music prize, along with wins at the Edmonton Music Awards and Western Canadian Awards.

Guitarist Tim Brown comments on Play To Win:

"Play to Win: if you want to win you have to play the game. Find the rules and break them. This is our 6th album and 3rd independent release. If we followed the rules and listened to the industry people we'd have gone absolutely nowhere. Play To Win is about listening to yourself, following your own path, and playing that 5th ace hidden in your sleeve. This album is designed to light a fire under your ass and get you moving, and we made sure to get the most modern, ear melting sounds possible. It's all about where metal is going, not where it has been, and this is our soundtrack to success."

Album CD order, stream and download available on www.Striker-Metal.com, iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
