Official “bootleg” footage of ARMORED SAINT‘s July 11 performance at Count’s Vamp’d in Las Vegas, Nevada can be seen below.
ARMORED SAINT is currently on the road in North America with metal legends SAXON. The tour continues tonight in Washington D.C.
Bassist Joey Vera offered up a comment about the tour: “We’re stoked to be out here again with our friends SAXON. This is such a great package tour for the fans and us alike. So far we’ve done ProgPower Atlanta; Stafford Springs, CT; and Portland, ME and every gig has been met with rabid fans. Love it! Looking forward to D.C. today and then we move into the Midwest. See you out there!”
ARMORED SAINT‘s seventh studio album, “Win Hands Down”, was released on June 2 in North America via Metal Blade. The CD was produced by bassist Joey Vera and mixed by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STEEL PANTHER, STONE SOUR).
ARMORED SAINT singer John Bush previously stated about “Win Hands Down”: “When we began talking about a new record, I told 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. What came out was ‘Win Hands Down’, which is our first record in five years.”
He continued: “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.”
