Legendary heavy metal band Stryper released a new single titled “See No Evil, Hear No Evil” today (July 21), the second single from an upcoming album slated for release in late 2022.
Striper frontman Michael Sweet explains that “‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil’ was inspired by health issues that Oz [Fox, guitarist] and I was confronted. Despite our limitations, we were able to deliver a powerful and relevant album and this is the perfect track to show it.
We couldn’t be more excited about this album! The best is yet to come.”
“See No Evil, Hear No Evil” follows the successful late June release of “Rise To The Call,” which received praise from fans and media alike during the build-up to the band’s new album, which was produced by Sweet and continues the trend set during their more recent albums by seeing them sound heavier while retaining their trademark melodies, virtuoso guitar playing and airy rhythms.

Stryper is renowned for its distinctive brand of “celestial metal”, extraordinary crossover success and longevity. The group rose to prominence in the 1980s with Billboard Top 40 hits such as ‘Calling on You’, ‘Honestly’ and ‘Always There For You’, maintaining a loyal worldwide fan base ever since.
Their album sales exceed ten million, including 1986’s multi-platinum “To Hell With The Devil.” The group also made history by recording two videos simultaneously on the MTV Top 10 for their songs “Free” and “Honestly”.
Renowned for their religious faith, the band’s extraordinarily long career has made them more than just a “Christian metal” band. Ultimately, they’re a well-respected team enjoying a late-career renaissance, proving that their musical skills are still fully intact.
Nearly four decades after emerging from the Southern California nightclub scene, Stryper continues to record, tour and perform around the world. With three original members – brothers Michael (vocals, guitar) and Robert Sweet (drums), plus Oz Fox (guitar) – along with their new bandmate, veteran bassist Perry Richardson (formerly of Firehouse), they reunite at create their best, most powerful music ever.
