Striker Win Juno Award 2/7/20
Champions in blending classic Heavy Metal, Hard Rock and 80’s Hair Metal, Canadian shredders Striker's sixth studio album, 'Play To Win', including today's Video Of The Day, 'Head First', has won Canada's 2020 Juno Award for Metal/Hard Music Album of The Year. As the most prestigious music award an artist can be given in the country, the 49th Juno Awards were originally scheduled to be held at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but due to Covid-19 it was forced to reschedule as a live stream on Monday. This was Striker's second Juno Award nomination and first win for this album released via their independent label Record Breaking Records, featuring 10 fist-pounding shredtacular anthems. 'Play To Win' was nominated alongside Kobra and The Lotus - 'Evolution', Lindsay Schoolcraft - 'Martyr', Single Mothers - 'Through A Wall' and The Agonist - 'Orphans'.
