Stryper will be unleashing their new album, Fallen, on October 16th. The new album artwork can be seen below. The first song from the album, "Yahweh”, will be released the week of July 6th.
Says Stryper: “On the album artwork for Fallen we're proud to say that we had the honour of working with Stanis Decker again (who also did No More Hell To Pay). We sent Stanis the concept about Lucifer being cast out of heaven and he sent us this amazing illustration, capturing the original idea perfectly. We're excited to be able to finally show all of you!”
Stryper frontman Michael Sweet recently issued an update offering some insight on Fallen: "The album was written and arranged very quickly (9-10 days actually). This by no means reflects on the quality of the album. It's some of our best material to date and so far those who have heard it have said the very same. Chris Jericho texted me and said that “Yahweh” may be the best song since reuniting. Kevin (our publicist) said that the ballad is our new “Honestly”!
There are songs on this album that coincide with sitting down and reading the bible. The music is heavy and the lyrics are bold and powerful, some taken right from scriptures. Sonically I think this is our best sounding album to date! Everything is crystal clear. The highs are crisp and the lows are tight and punchy. The more I listen, the more excited I am for all of you to hear it!!!”
