Iconic Rock Band STRYPER Brings First Ever Acoustic Tour to The Factory at Franklin on June 23

(NASHVILLE, TN) — Iconic rock band STRYPER will bring their first-ever acoustic tour to Liberty Hall at the Factory at Franklin on Sunday, June 23rd. Stryper’s To Hell with the Amps - The Unplugged Tour will be the only Nashville-area stop this summer. Country artist Karissa Ella will open the show at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at Stryper.com.

The new tour celebrates the release of the multi-platinum band's first-ever acoustic “unplugged” album, To Hell with the Amps on the Stryper Recording label distributed worldwide by Flatiron Recordings. The first STRYPER album to be available in Dolby Atmos, To Hell with the Amps was released digitally on May 10th, with physical editions (including Blu-ray, CD, DVD, cassette and vinyl formats) to follow in June. The Blu-ray and DVD editions will feature a full live performance video of the album.

The 11-track collection features stripped-down versions of STRYPER classics – ranging from energized tracks “Loud & Clear” and “Soldiers Under Command” to power ballad “Honestly” – plus a never-before-released version of the enduring hymn, “Amazing Grace.”

“We’re excited to show people a totally different translation of these songs,” says lead vocalist, guitarist and primary songwriter Michael Sweet of the current tour. “Most of the acoustic shows will be set in smaller, more intimate venues, and the set is naturally more toned down. It will feel like a family affair, like everyone is sitting in our living room listening to us play.”

To Hell with the Amps was produced by Michael Sweet and recorded and engineered by Danny Bernini at Spirithouse Studios. The Dolby Atmos mixes were done at Iguana Studios and engineered by Thiago Lima.

About STRYPER: With over 10 million albums sold worldwide, STRYPER is renowned for its distinctive brand of “heavenly metal” and extraordinary crossover success. The group ascended to prominence in the 1980s with Billboard Top 40 hits like “Calling on You,” “Honestly,” and “Always There for You,” and has maintained a global fanbase ever since. STRYPER is the first band to ever have two songs in MTV’s Top 10 simultaneously with their hits “Free” and “Honestly.” STRYPER is comprised of original members Michael Sweet (lead vocals, guitar), Robert Sweet (drums), and Oz Fox (guitar), plus the addition of seasoned bassist Perry Richardson (Firehouse).
