As previously reported over the summer, Stryper was recording a new CD called The Covering, which features covers of some of the greatest metal songs. The album was expected released sometime in September, but has been delayed.
According to Stryper's official site, the release will now be sometime in the first quarter of 2011. According to their site, the reason is "the business and label team feel that more set-up time will allow for a stronger release of this amazing recording."
Details on the release date will be posted here when available.
