Country music’s fastest rising star Warren Zeiders has partnered with iconic genre-crossing drummer/producer Travis Barker to add some heavy thunder to his RIAA Gold-certified hit “Ride The Lightning.” Barker’s signature hard-hitting style drives the new version of the haunting track. Listen to “Ride The Lightning” featuring Travis Barker HERE via Warner Records / 717 Tapes.
“It’s been one year since ‘Ride The Lightning” dropped and changed the direction of my life forever,”Zeiders shared. “My fans always told me they’d love a version with drums, so who better than Travis Barker himself to hop on the track. It’s wild to think Travis has never done a country project, and I’m honored and blessed to welcome him to our genre.”
The collaboration comes just weeks before Zeiders’ Grand Ole Opry debut, a rite of passage for country’s best and brightest. The legendary institution will welcome Zeiders on Saturday, July 9. Tickets for all 2022 Opry shows are on sale now at (615) 871-OPRY and opry.com. Fans unable to attend can livestream the performance via Circle TV. Additionally, Opry shows are broadcast on Gray TV stations, DISH Studio Channel 102, Sling TV, and other affiliates.
The new version of “Ride The Lightning” also arrives just after the Pennsylvania native wraps up the first leg of his 717 Tapes Tour—14 shows, all sold out in under 72 hours. Zeiders is now preparing to embark on an upcoming, full-band outing. Tickets are on sale now for the 717 Tapes Tour. You can find upcoming dates below and buy tickets HERE.
The 22-year-old burst onto the country music scene in the last year or so, emerging as one of the genre’s fastest rising success stories in recent history. With his brooding tunes and gravelly voice, Zeiders has earned comparisons to artists like Tyler Childers and Jason Isbell, and it’s no surprise that he’s inspired a massive social media following, garnering over 900 million views on TikTok and over 381 million global streams across platforms.
Zeiders has earned a rep for sharing his searing, authentic songs directly with fans and has collected that work in the critically acclaimed 717 Tapes EPs — you can find volumes 1 and 2HERE. You can also stream the thrilling full-band take of “Ride the Lightning” HERE, and check out the video below. 717 Tapes EP Vol. 2 also contains his most recent single and fan favorite “Wild Horse,” along with “Dark Night” and “Burn It Down.”
