Hey Judas

Album: All Hell Breaks Loose (2013)
  • This is a track from Black Star Riders' debut album. They are a hard rock group who evolved from the touring version of Thin Lizzy, assembled by guitarist Scott Gorham after the death of the band's leader Phil Lynott. Scott Gorham told us they recorded twelve songs in twelve days for the set explaining that's how producer Kevin Shirley likes to work. He said: "He doesn't like to sit there and put the microscope on this note or that note or this passage or this guitar tone. So it was kind of a pressurized situation. It was really a fun thing to do it that way. I'm not sure that any of us are going to do it that way again, but he did catch a lot of what we were all about on stage, especially for the last year and a half. He got some good stuff."
  • Black Star Riders filmed a video for the song on May 27, 2013 with Northern Irish photographer, music video director and typographical designer Mark Hylands.
