In October 2012, Thin Lizzy members decided to record new material, but under a different band name. The members of the new band are: Thin Lizzy alumni Ricky Warwick (vocals), Scott Gorham (guitar), Damon Johnson (guitar), Marco Mendoza (bass) with new addition Jimmy DeGrasso on drums (Alice Cooper, Megadeth, David Lee Roth, Suicidal Tendencies). “The change in personnel came about as Brian Downey didn’t want to commit to the touring cycle a new album would entail and Darren Wharton wanted to concentrate on Dare and other music and film projects.”

Black Star Riders started recording their debut album in January 2013 in Los Angeles, with Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Rush). The album will include material wrote whilst touring as Thin Lizzy.

Ricky Warwick says: “We are all very excited about the music that we have created for Black Star Riders. The synergy between the five of us has been phenomenal and I can’t wait for the world to hear these songs.” The new album will be released in May 2013.
