BLACK STAR RIDERS frontman Ricky Warwick will release two new solo albums this month. “When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)” and the beautifully acoustic “Hearts On Trees” will be released as a double CD on February 26 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
Ricky comments: “‘Hearts On Trees’ and ‘When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)’ were written by myself and my good friend Sam Robinson. Both albums depict our experiences of growing up and coming from the Greater East Belfast area, not only experiences that have happened to us but historical references and stories that have been told to us by friends and family… in saying that both albums translate those experiences on to a global scale that hopefully anyone geographically can relate to.”
The release boasts an array of acclaimed musicians with guests such as Joe Elliott (DEF LEPPARD), Damon Johnson (THIN LIZZY, BLACK STAR RIDERS), Andy Cairns (THERAPY?), Billy Morrison (BILLY IDOL), Nathan Connolly (SNOW PATROL), Ginger Wildheart, Jake Burns (STIFF LITTLE FINGERS), Richard Fortus (GUNS ‘N’ ROSES, THE DEAD DAISIES).
