ARMORED SAINT – Adds Tour Dates With SAXON


Los Angeles-based metal band, ARMORED SAINT, will join back up with the legendary SAXON for some additional shows in the US this fall to continue touring in support of their seventh studio album Win Hands Down. The group will also only be performing one, very special headlining date in the US this year and it’s in Las Vegas at Count’s Vamp’d Rock Bar and Grill on July 11th, so don’t miss out if you are in the area.

Joey Vera states: “We had such a great time playing these dates with Saxon last May, and now they’ve asked us to join them again in September? We’re In! It’s an honor sharing the stage with Saxon and we’re super glad we get to bring this great package to other parts of the country. See you all soon.”

Vocalist John Bush added: “What can we say? The first six shows with Saxon were so good, we added more! We’re playing cities in the midwest that we haven’t played in years: Cleveland, Detroit, D.C. among others. Plus, San Diego! It’s been awhile, thanks for your patience! The guys in Saxon are extremely cool. We look forward to kicking ass throughout America with them. Let’s do this. Win Hands Down!!!”

Armored Saint’s new album, Win Hands Down, is streaming in it’s entirety, and can be ordered at MetalBlade.com. Win Hands Down was mixed by Jay Ruston and produced by bassist Joey Vera.

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.”
