Stryper Frontman Michael Sweet Says They Have Finished Work On New Album

Michael Sweet, frontman of Christian metal legends Stryper has posted an update on his Facebook page proclaiming that the band has finished work on their new album. The message reads as follows:

“Three things stand out to me on the new Stryper album:

“#1 – Songs! They’re edgy & heavy, yet memorable & catchy. And yes there’s a ballad (rock/guitar ballad).

“#2 – Clarity! We tried hard to make this our most defined & dynamic album ever. We didn’t get into a “loud war” while mixing & mastering. Because of that it retained it transients and it really “breathes”??

“#3 – Stryper got their groove back”

This will mark the group’s first album featuring bassist Perry Richardson, who joined the band last year and their first release since 2015′, “Fallen.”
