Strikeforce To Release New Album In 2017

Midwest Grammy nominated hard rock artist Strikeforce is gearing up for a second HighVolMusic release titled “Incoming,” which is due out in February. Stay tuned for full details. HighVolMusic also comments:

“Their career spanning some 30 years, Strikeforce made their debut in 1984 and broke in the year 1989 through the rock anthem single ‘Fast As Lightning’. KSHE 95 FM in St. Louis, MO was the first FM station in the U.S. to break the song which resulted in a domino effect with more FM stations across the U.S. spinning the track. Strikeforce jumped out on support tours with Joan Jett, Britny Fox, Blue Oyster Cult, Accept, and 38 Special that same year.

“The current line up of Strikeforce consists of Duke Jackson – lead guitar/vocals, Jimmy Burdette – drums, and Dave Rader – bass. ‘Incoming’ is slated for a February 2017 release and will resurrect some tunes from the past as well as new tracks including a cover of the Uriah Heep hit ‘Easy Livin’. Strikeforce will kick off their 2017 on February 11th at the Viper Room in Hollywood, CA at the Pre Grammy Rockfest.”
