Well, since we just informed you that Armored Saint would be joining Saxon on their Warriors of the Road Tour this May, we might as well tell you that Armored Saint will be releasing a new album this summer. Win Hands Down will be released on June 2nd, and it’s already being touted as one of the classic band’s heaviest yet, a crushing and epic tome that shows a stronger and tighter Armored Saint than ever before. Keep an eye on for art work, track listing, and new music.
John Bush (vocals) states:
When we began talking about a new record I told Joey Vera (bass) to pretend we were a really huge band and that we could do anything we wanted. At least that was the mindset we should have, from the writing to the production. What came out was Win Hands Down, which is our first record in five years. There’s everything from classic Armored Saint rocker songs to epic songs and we all dug deep to deliver something special. If we weren’t going to, then we shouldn’t have bothered. I’m glad we did. In May, we are doing some shows in the States with Saxon. It’s a great way to get the ball rolling.
Vera further comments:
We’re very excited about our new record coming out in June! We’ve been writing over the past year and half and we feel like we’ve written some amazing music. We can’t wait to share it! To get our whistle’s wet, we’re super excited about doing some warm up gigs before the record release with the legendary Saxon this May! We’re doing a total of six shows between the East Coast, Texas, West Coast and we couldn’t think of a better way to start off the summer! See you all soon.
