KING’S X online:

“Better Than Saturday Night”, from the new album ‘Wrong Side of Paradise’, out 20th January, 2023. Pre-order now on signed CD, limited edition coloured vinyl, special collector’s sets and more Here

The Album, featuring 11 tracks, was recorded in the Autumn of 2021 at Studio 606 in Northridge California and Toochtoon Sound in Redmond Oregon with producer and longtime BSR associate, Jay Ruston.
With Ricky Warwick on Lead Vocals / Guitar, Robert Crane on Bass, Christian Martucci on Guitar and drummer Zak St, John, the band will release their first single and video entitled “Better Than Saturday Night” (with backing vocals from Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott) TODAY June 6th 2022.  
The video features a lightning-hot performance from the four-time UK Top 25 band, and teases the watcher into suspecting a standard rock video cliché before flipping it on its head with the entrance of the rough’n’tough Roller Derby Dolls.
Ricky Warwick: ““Better Than Saturday Night” is a feel-good, uplifting tune about staying strong in the face of adversity, being true to yourself, and the power of positivity. I wrote it for my kids, but subliminally I think I also wrote it for myself and everyone for those days when we need to find a little bit of extra strength.”
He continues: “We wanted to reflect the positivity, power, attitude and strength to endure sentiment in the lyrics of the song. And no better way to do that than Black Star Riders rockin’ out with the Los Angeles Roller Derby Dolls.”
About the album Ricky adds “I am very proud of this record, Black Star Riders fifth release and the first with our new and exciting relationship with Earache Records. As with all BSR albums, ‘Wrong Side Of Paradise’ is an anthemic statement of intent,  driven by ferocious guitars and thundering drums. I can only write about my own personal experiences, my families, my friends and how I see a world that is unraveling and changing faster than we can comprehend. That being said, I’m a firm believer in the power of positivity, something that echoes throughout this album”

The official sponsor of Wayne Hussey’s upcoming solo ‘Salad Daze’ tour (see dates below), the kindly folk at Schecter Guitar Research have very generously donated one of Wayne Hussey’s signature 12 string electric guitars as a competition prize. The prototype was built in 2011 for Wayne for the reformed Mission’s 25th anniversary tour and was then made commercially available a few short years later and has proved popular amongst guitar connoisseurs. You can read all about the tech specs here.

So, how do you get your grubby mitts on this beauty? The good people at MWIS decided that it would be only right that a ‘true fan’ should win this guitar, a guitar that Wayne will himself use during the tour. We have decided the fairest way to determine a winner is by a lottery. To qualify for your name to be included ‘in the hat’ all you have to do is buy at least one advance ticket for one of the shows on Wayne’s tour. If perchance, you decide to come to more than one show then your chances increase. For example, if you buy advance tickets for 6 shows then your name will go ‘in the hat’ 6 times, 8 shows 8 times, and so on. If you buy 4 tickets for one show – for yourself, your partner, and a couple of friends, say – then your name will be included 4 times. The more shows you come to, the more tickets you buy in advance, the more your chance of winning this coveted prize will increase.


Those who have already bought tickets and any and all future purchases through the ticket link for the UK shows will automatically be included in the draw. Because of strictly enforced European privacy laws we will not have access to the names of people who buy advance tickets from other outlets.


They have not forgotten you if you have purchased tickets for a show in Europe as you can also be included in the lottery. Please send either a photo of your ticket or the ticket confirmation by email to


Finally, if you purchase a ticket for the VIP then you will automatically be given an additional entry to the lottery to say thank you.


The lucky winner’s name will be drawn by Wayne literally from his hat onstage at his final show of the tour and announced through all our social media outlets.


Good luck.


Due to the Leipzig and Whitby shows both being festivals these are excluded from inclusion in this competition as are the two book events in London & Manchester that Wayne will be appearing at.
