Black Star Riders have shared their brand new single, "Catch Yourself On". The track comes from their forthcoming album, "Wrong Side Of Paradise," which arrives January 20th.
Frontman Ricky Warwick had this to say about the new song, " 'Catch Yourself On' is a phrase often used in my home country of Northern Ireland, it's used to tell someone to 'stop being ridiculous' or 'to get real'.
"We're sadly becoming slaves to technology and social media (guilty as charged). We don't think twice about sharing our inner most feelings and thoughts with a world of strangers...
"We seem to be losing the ability to think for ourselves. Technology is controlling us, instead we should be controlling technology. It feels like it's already surpassing human interaction."
Ricky will be celebrating the new album's release by unplugging for a series of in-store dates throughout the UK. See the dates and stream the new song below:
