Black Star Riders is a rock band formed in December 2012, when members of the most recent line-up of Thin Lizzy decided to record new material, but chose not to release it under the Thin Lizzy name. While Thin Lizzy will continue on an occasional basis, Black Star Riders is a full-time band, described as "the next step in the evolution of the Thin Lizzy story". The band's first album, All Hell Breaks Loose, was released on 21 May 2013,and the follow-up album, The Killer Instinct was released on 20 February 2015.

Review by Edwin van Hoof.
Alongside the excellent Revolution Saints album, there's another album landing on the market this month, which will have fans of classic rock looking forward to. Black Star Riders surprised the scene with their remarkable debut album "All Hell breaks Loose" (2013), strongly rooted in the Thin Lizzy legacy of the band's members. Though the band initially started out as Thin Lizzy, Gorham wanted to focus on recording new material without usage of his acclaimed past. "The Killer Instinct" clings onto the band's debut with sharp claws and presents the band's new lineup featuring Robbie Crane (Ratt, Lynch Mob) and drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper, Y&T, Megadeth, Suicidal Tendencies)
