Champions in blending classic heavy metal, hard rock, and 80’s hair metal, Canadian shredders STRIKER unleashed their sixth studio album Play To Win in October 2018 via their independent label Record Breaking Records.
The band have just released a brand new video for the track, On The Run

Play To Win is out now
The band comment on the clip: ‘As an independent band we are constantly pushing ourselves to be better an go farther, “On The Run” is about just that, always moving forward with everything in your life.
With this video we took on some new challenges with our director Lindsay Robinson in programming our own light show, and making all of the visual effects ourselves with very minimal computer graphics. We love how it turned out and we are excited to share it. Shred!’
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 Tranquility, 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.
