black star riders

Black Star Riders have shared brand new single ‘Catch Yourself On’, taken from their forthcoming album ‘Wrong Side Of Paradise’, due out 20 January 2023.

Frontman Ricky Warwick commented, “‘Catch Yourself On’ is a phrase often used in my home country of Northern Ireland, it’s used to tell someone to ‘stop being ridiculous’ or ‘to get real’. We’re sadly becoming slaves to technology and social media (guilty as charged). We don’t think twice about sharing our inner most feelings and thoughts with a world of strangers… We seem to be losing the ability to think for ourselves. Technology is controlling us, instead we should be controlling technology. It feels like it’s already surpassing human interaction.”


Additionally, Warwick will participate in a series of in-store dates throughout the UK, playing a selection of the new tracks in an intimate acoustic setting.
