While fans have come to know Stryper Fan Weekend as an annual event, 2015 will mark the final event for the foreseeable future. Due to heavy touring, recording schedules and other project commitments for the individual band members, 2015 is scheduled to be the final "annual" event. Stryper will continue to offer their popular Meet & Greets throughout the 2016 tour and beyond.

A number of once-in-a-lifetime events are being planned, including a wide variety of special guests. For the first time, Stryper will bring together the people who helped shape their career, and fans will have the opportunity to meet and interact with both current and former crew members, managers, road pastors, band personnel and more.
The 4-day fan event will include VIP treatment for Stryper LIVE at the House of Blues (Anaheim), a Stryper History Tour to many historical locations that played a major role in the band's career, Q&A sessions with the band and special guests, interactive events with the band, an exclusive commemorative laminate, a professional photo with the band (printed and personally autographed) and more surprises and exciting moments to be announced! Optional excursions are also available, including a day at Disneyland with Stryper and a day trip to Hollywood's legendary Sunset Strip!

The album debuted on multiple Billboard charts, including #2 on the Contemporary Christian chart, and #33 on the Top 200 chart - which is amazing in that To Hell With The Devil's highest peak was only #32!
Last week Friday, hosts Matthew O'Shaughnessy and Tony Gizzo welcomed back Michael Sweet live on Metal Mayhem who spoke in detail about Styper's latest album, upcoming live appearances, being the first Christian hard rock band to gain acceptance in the mainstream and thirty years of rocking for God.
Stryper are back to reclaim their throne in the hard rock/heavy metal world with the release of their 8th studio album this week, No More Hell To Pay! The album is being released via Frontiers Records and is available everywhere today.
The original lineup comprised of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitars), Oz Fox (guitars), Tim Gaines (bass) and Robert Sweet (drums) return with an album of all new material showcasing the musicianship that garnered them a huge fan base in the mainstream world and the Christian market. From the opening lick of the album opener "Revelation" to the signature wail at the end of "Renewed," it is clear Stryper has returned with some of their heaviest songs and catchiest riffs of their career.
The album is available via all physical and digital retailers in standard CD and a delux digipak featuring exclusive video content and can be ordered via the following: iTUNES, AMAZON.COM and directly from Stryper at STRYPER.COM.
