Michael Sweet Recording New Stryper Album and Plans New Solo Release

Stryper frontman Michael Sweet updated fans on Thursday via Facebook about his current activities which include recording a new Stryper album and also revealing his plans for his next solo album which will feature Will Hunt (Evanescence, Black Label Society, Staind).

He writes, "I'm currently recording vocals (on and off) for the new Stryper album to be released later this year. I'm writing for a new solo album (it will be the best to date, I promise) and I start writing for an album I'll be producing/co-writing that will commence later in the year! Whew.......

"The solo album most likely will be released in April/May of 2016 and I'm proud to say that I'll be working with Joe O'Brien and his team over at Rat Pak Records

"I'm also doing select solo acoustic dates throughout the year as well as a Puerto Rico Stryper date in June and the 3rd Annual Stryper Fan Weekend in September. Each year gets more interesting:-)

"Regarding the solo album, Will Hunt (Evanescence, Black Label Society, Staind) will be joining me in the studio (drums) and we'll be doing something completely unconventional in terms of bass - we'll be announcing exactly what very soon.

"2016 will be a very busy year for Stryper Tours, Inc. and we look forward to seeing you all out on the road!!! Love & Respect always ~ M"
