Grim Reaper premiered the title track to their highly anticipated new album, Walking in the Shadows, today (August 30) on YouTube. The album to be released by Dissonance Productions, on September 23, will be the band’s first new recording in over 20 years since 1987’s Rock You To Hell.
Posting on Facebook in early 2016, vocalist Steve Grimmett said of the album, “I am tremendously proud of the album. It has taken a long time because it has been fraught with problems, but we have ended up with the best thing I have done in decades. We’re all looking forward to bring it to the fans and excited to be doing a world tour, starting straight after its release, and carrying on until 2017.”
The official launch party for Walking in the Shadows will be at The Underworld Camden, London, UK, on September 23. Lucky fans in attendance will not only be the first to hear, live, the whole album but also be the first to see the new video… AND everyone will get a unique free gift from the band that only people who attend the evening will receive.
Grim Reaper kicks off its fall tour September 2 in Torcy, France at the Fall of Summer Festival followed by dates in the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada before starting off 2017 with dates in Ecuador.
GRIM REAPER’s story begins in 1979 after successfully fighting off hundreds of bands in a local Battle Of The Bands competition. GRIM REAPER released three albums in rapid succession to international acclaim. Due to legal turmoil with Ebony, GRIM REAPER would disband in 1988 and Grimmett would go on to record with Onslaught, Lionsheart, and more recently The Sanity Day debut Evil Beyond Belief.
