Today is Canada Day and here are two angles on how to celebrate it this year as a music lover: Have some booze, refine it with maple sirup, have fun and be excellent to each other. Or, if you are a Canadian artist, win the 49th JUNO Awards, preferably in the metal category, as just happened to lucky maniacs Striker.
Here’s the band’s immediate shoutout to the fans and jurors after winning the “Canadian Grammy” with their recent album Play To Win: “Thank you so much everyone! We are so grateful to win the Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year at the 2020 The JUNO Awards!! Congratulations to all the other nominees KOBRA AND THE LOTUS, The Agonist, Lindsay Schoolcraft, SMWorldwide. We’re gonna post a lot more about this over the next few days and weeks but for now it’s beer time. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!”
More good news: STRIKER also announced first tour dates for 2021 in the UK (March 11 – 14) and Spain (August 4-8) and can’t wait to see fans and friends all over the world again.
