Armored Saint has released a new video for their digital single Isolation (Live from Isolation) – a live re-recording of the classic track, Isolation, which appeared on 1987’s Raising Fear. This new version was recorded and filmed in April 2020 while all of the band members were quarantined at their homes in Los Angeles, CA. Watch and listen to Isolation (Live from Isolation), below.

Bassist Joey Vera comments, Like everyone else right now, we’re trying to make the best of the situation. So we decided to have a little fun with one of our older songs. It was fun playing with a stripped-down version of Isolation – lyrically and sonically, it just fit for the times. Be safe everyone and enjoy your ‘Isolation’!”

Front-man John Bush comments: With live shows in a sad state of limbo, we decided to come together (yet apart) and revisit the song Isolation from the 1987 Raising Fear record. We did an acoustic, swampy take on it. It was a fun, raw project.”

Armored Saint also recently completed work on their upcoming studio album, due out fall 2020 via Metal Blade Records. We’re overjoyed with the completion of the new Armored Saint record,” enthuses John Bush. “We feel the songwriting has taken yet another giant step.”

Joey Vera adds, We’re super excited right now, putting final touches on our new record in the mastering stage. We really tried to challenge ourselves with both songwriting and performance, and the results are something we’re taking with great pride.”

  1. Awesome performance. I think Armored Saint is the #1 “Should Have Been Huge” metal band. I think the band trying to establish themselves as an 80’s metal band during the rise of “glam” and “thrash” proved difficult for Armored Saint, who was neither. I’ve seen them live many times, including opening for Metallica on the “Ride the Lightning” tour at a venue with a capacity of 400 sweaty headbangers. IMO, Armored Saint was the better band that evening and whipped the audience into the greater frenzy….

    1. Dana, that is a great Saint song!

      …and on this performance of the song “Isolation”, Armored Saint indeed “Delivered” a great performance. :o)

  2. Always loved these guys. Better Anthrax with John. The world missed out by these guys not hitting it big. Glad they did something.
