    Stryper Return With New Song ‘Blood From Above’ + ‘Even the Devil Believes’ Album


    Published on june 26th, 2020 | PRESS RELEASE

    Once again proving their lasting durability, iconic metal band Stryper returns September 4th with their 13th studio album, "Even the Devil Believes" (Frontiers Music Srl). Earlier today, the band announced the album's first single, “Blood From Above.” 

    Filled with the band’s signature riffs, harmony-laden melodies and positive themes, the 11-track project is Stryper’s first studio album with Perry Richardson (Firehouse) on bass and background vocals.


    We’re incredibly happy to write a new chapter in the book of Stryper,” says vocalist/guitarist Michael Sweet, who has served as the band’s primary songwriter since its inception in 1983. “This album was recorded during the pandemic, and I believe the message pertains to the times we are living in so perfectly. It’s a recording of hope and inspiration and a light in the darkest of times.”

    Sweet, who also produced the new album, revealed that the band members delivered focused determination, a collaborative spirit and spot-on execution for the new record. The result is a collection of remarkable songs that will leave a strong impact on listeners.

    It has an energy unlike any other album we’ve done,” he asserts. “We even pulled a song from the past that has never been heard or released, and by doing so we brought a little bit of 1989 back into the mix.”

    Standout tracks include “Blood From Above,” “Make Love Great Again,” “Do Unto Others,” “How to Fly,” “Divider,” and the heart-stirring ballad, “This I Pray.”

    “The music and lyrics are rock-solid,” says Sweet. “God really blessed this one and hopefully it will bless everyone who hears it as well.”

    Stryper is renowned for its distinctive brand of “heavenly metal,” extraordinary crossover success and venerable endurance. The group ascended to prominence in the 1980s with Billboard Top 40 hits like “Calling on You,” “Honestly,” and “Always There for You,” and has maintained a global fanbase ever since. Stryper is the first band to ever have two songs in MTV’s Top 10 simultaneously with their hits “Free” and “Honestly.” To date, the Dove Award-winning and GRAMMY-nominated band has sold over 10 million albums worldwide.

    Today, some 35+ years after emerging from the southern California nightclub scene, the foursome continues to record, tour and perform for loyal fans around the world. Comprised of original members Michael Sweet (lead vocals, guitar), Robert Sweet (drums), and Oz Fox (guitar), plus the addition of seasoned bassist Perry Richardson (formerly of Firehouse), the group finds itself creating their finest, most powerful music yet.

    The Lirycs of the New Single

    A star to shine, a true life divine
    Born to die for me and for you
    Prophesied, with no love denied
    It's redemption and power so true

    He's a holy human sacrifice
    Nailed upon a cross
    A righteous murder scene of love
    Flowing down grace
    In the blood from above

    Evil is damned in the special plan
    A straight and narrow path is for all
    The crucifixion the torment of I am
    Where Golgotha's at
    He answered the call

    He's a holy human sacrifice
    Nailed upon a cross
    A righteous murder scene of love
    Flowing down grace
    In the blood from above

    He's a holy human sacrifice
    Nailed upon a cross
    A righteous murder scene of love
    Flowing down grace
    In the blood from above
