Dimitris Kontogeorgakos of Metal Kaoz recently conducted an interview with Jack Starr (ex-VIRGIN STEELE, JACK STARR'S BURNING STARR) who revealed that Stand Your Ground will be the title of the upcoming Jack Starr's Burning Starr album. Also, Starr talked about the filming of the DVD at Germany's Keep It True festival. An excerpt follows:
Q: Let’s talk about Jack Starr's Burning Starr’s next step; it’s been almost two years since Land Of The Dead; so when can we expect the next
album? Are you working on new music?
A: "We have all the music written for the new album which will be called Stand Your Ground. Ned (Meloni; bass) and I have written most of the songs but we will also be doing songs written by Rhino and Todd Micheal Hall, our singer. I know that every band believes that the new album will be great but this album will be very special because some of the riffs and ideas have existed for thirty years. In particular I have one song that was written by Ned Meloni, Rhett Forrester (RIOT) and myself for the Out Of The Darkness album; this one, called 'Stronger Than Steel', will be on the new album and we are happy that it will be finally released."
Q: When it’s time for Jack Starr's Burning Starr to write new material, all the members can equally contribute in writing music? I mean, what is Rhino’s and Todd’s input in the band’s writing process?
A: "Everyone in the band has and will continue to give input and contribute and as you know, Rhino and Todd both have other projects where they write most of the songs, so for them it is not a problem to help in the songwriting.'
Q: And what about the playing live plans; have you set any live dates for the near future?
A: There are some shows that are already being talked about and they will be announced, but this is something that our manager will announce when it is 100% confirmed.
