MEAN STREAK To Release 'Declaration Of War' In January

December 21, 2010

Swedish metallers MEAN STREAK will release a new single, "In For The Kill", on December 28. The song comes off the band's sophomore album, "Declaration Of War", which will be made available on January 28, 2011 via Black Lodge. The CD features new guitarists David Andersson (ex-SOILWORK) and Patrik Gardberg (AMMOTRACK, SOLUTION .45) and contains "11 epic songs which takes the band's NWOBHM sound to new dimensions," according to a press release. "The album is all about classic '80s metal, but MEAN STREAK has also developed their sound quite a bit and we get to hear them perform some progressive tunes here and there, like on 'The Oblation' and 'Brothers 'Til The End' where double pedal bass drums have been left out to offer more atonal and dark arrangements. The band has also developed lyrically, and the production has a modern touch that makes the album sound fresh without losing the spirit of the past."

"Declaration Of War" was once again mixed by Fredrik Nordström and was mastered by Thomas "Plec" Johansson (SOLUTION .45).

MEAN STREAK was formed in 2006 and released its debut album, "Metal Slave", in 2009.

In the spring and summer of 2011, MEAN STREAK will embark on an extensive tour of Europe.
