The band will play eight dates this Summer.

Black Star Riders have announced that they will play a string of UK dates, presented by Planet Rock Live, this July and August.

The band, which features Thin Lizzy members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza together with drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper/Megadeth), will kick off the jaunt on Friday 18th July at Holmfirth's Picturedome and finish up at The Asylum in Birmingham on Thursday 7th August.

Black Star Riders will also begin working on a new studio album later this year. The follow up to 2013's "All Hell Breaks Loose" will be produced by Joe Elliott and Ronan McHugh.

On the new record, Ricky Warwick said: “Joe and myself have been best friends for years and as fans of the first BSR record, it was only natural to have Joe and Ronan work with us on the follow up.

"Joe & Ronan did a great job on the Thin Lizzy reissues a couple of years ago with Scott, so its great to have the dream team back together. We are very excited about what we can achieve with the new record and its great to play back in the UK again just before we head into the studio”

Support on all dates comes from the emerging Bristol-based band Tax The Heat, who said: "We're extremely excited to be supporting such a great band. We're all big fans of BSR and Thin Lizzy, so it's a great opportunity!"
