Five years since their last release, the upcoming ARMORED SAINT full-length album, entitled “Win Hands Down” on METAL BLADE RECORDS, is due out on June 2 and “promises to be one of the heaviest of band’s heaviest records to date” and has been described as “crushing” and “epic”.

ARMORED SAINT will also be joining the legendary SAXON for a few special shows across the U.S. from May 12th through May 30th.

Armored Saint vocalist John Bush states:

“When we began talking about a new record I told (bassist) Joey Vera 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.  There’s everything from classic ARMORED SAINT rocker songs to epic songs and we all dug deep 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.”

Joey Vera adds:

“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.”

The band is rounded out with with Gonzo Sandoval on drums, Phil Sandoval and Jeff Duncan on guitar
