Starsick System Release Lyric Video For ‘Bulletproof’

Today, Starsick System have released a lyric video for the first instant grat/ single ‘Bulletproof‘.

Bassist Valeria Battain comments on the track:‘Bulletproof‘ is song of “rebellion” but with an ironic tone. It will take on a personal meaning to everyone who hears it, but the message is the same: stand up for what you believe in, no matter what other people say, face your enemies, be proud of you and take back yourself respect against bullies, self-centered and arrogant ones. We chose this song as first single cause the mood and the melodies are the perfect evolution of our original sound. It’s a perfect match of heavy riffing and catchy refrains that is what distinguishes us mostly!

The album ‘Lies, Hope & Other Stories‘ will hit the shelves on June 23rd, 2017 via Pride & Joy Music. Next to 10 original songs, the record also features an outstanding cover of the Chris Cornell song ‘You Know My Name‘ (James Bond 007 – Casino Royale soundtrack).

Track list:

1. Nebolus

2. I Am The Hurricane

3. Bulletproof

4. Sinner

5. The Promise

6. Scars

7. Everything And More

8. Come One, Come All
