Uk old-school rockers AIRFORCE have joined forces with Pitch Black Records for the release of the band´s new album, their second full-length since reforming in 2016.
AIRFORCE stem originally from the NWOBHM era back in the 80´s with the band´s style best described as Old School Metal at its best, full of hooks, riffs and soaring melodies!
The band was originally formed in 1986 by Tony Hatton (bass), Chop Pitman (guitars) and legendary drummer Doug Sampson (ex- Iron Maiden).
The AIRFORCE line-up now includes the extremely talented vocalist Flavio Lino who recently joined the band on a permanent basis.
“Strike Hard” features a number of guest appearances, starting with Paul Di’ Anno (ex- Iron Maiden vocalist) and former AIRFORCE vocalist Ivan Giannini (now of Vision Divine).
The CD version of the album features a bonus track which is a cover of “Faith Healer”, a classic Sensational Alex Harvey Band song. This recording includes a guest appearance by the original SAHB guitarist Zal Cleminson.
