armoredsaint400 Los Angeles, California’s Armored Saint has had a banner year with the release of their seventh studio album, Win Hands Down, which is a vintage crush of classic power propelled by a cathartic blast of life in the year 2015. They played massive European festivals, crushed the masses across North America co-headlining with metal legends Saxon and now wrap-up the year with a very striking new music video for the blistering new track, An Exercise In Debauchery, shot by Brian Cox (Hollywood Undead, Prong).

John Bush (vocals) states, “I’m so happy with the way this video turned out. The song has a heavy subject matter and the video compliments it perfectly. There’s also a feeling of campiness which makes the viewer fade in and out of being uncomfortable and having a chuckle. The actors did a great job and personal props to my neighbor Sharon who let it all out as the police officer. Oh yeah, the band looks bad ass as well. Debauchery indeed.”

Joey Vera (bass) further adds, “We’re psyched to play these upcoming shows. First at M15 in Corona, CA. We haven’t played Riverside County in a long time, so this is gonna be sick! Then after Thanksgiving, we head out to Europe for two headline shows and two festivals with legends Accept. What a great way for us to end this year. We’re cooking up more shows for 2016, so we’ll see you all soon!”

  1. Armored Saint is one of the best “underground” metal bands that should have had a lot more success. John Bush is still an incredible singer. Saw them recently with Saxon and they are still on top of their game, and their new album, Win Hands Down, is great. I’ve seen Armored Saint live in concert a few times, including when they opened for Metallica on the Ride the Lightning tour. In my opinion, they blew Metallica away that night.

    With the band members now having families and other projects, the band gets together when they have the opportunity to do so. I hope Armored Saint continues because they truly are a great, talented band. Saints Will Conquer!!
