The Roxx Regime Demos is the eleventh release and third compilation album[1][2] by Stryper consisting of songs originally released under the band's previous name, Roxx Regime,[3][1][4] except for the track "Honestly", which is taken from a later demo. While the album's general release was on July 10, 2007, pre-sale purchases at Stryper.com shipped on July 7, 2007, a reference to 777,[5] a holy number in Christianity and one that used to appear onstage at Stryper concerts.[citation needed]
