armoredsaint400 Armored Saint are set to release their seventh studio album this summer. The album, Win Hands Down, is all things Armored, a vintage crush of classic power propelled by a cathartic blast of life in the year 2015.

A brand new video was recently shot by director Andrew Nethery, and the audio is available for streaming below where album pre-order bundles are also ready for order.

Jamey Jasta talked about the upcoming Hatebreed tour, the podcast he hosts, recounted how a recent tour they did with Black Label Society was one of the best he had ever done, and even gave a compilation CD to each member of the audience. John Bush and Joey Vera talked about their forthcoming seventh album Win Hands Down, their upcoming tour with Saxon and recalled memories from their time in Anthrax. Watch the full episode, along with bonus clips of John and Joey, on VH1.

    1. Realistically, that’s probably all they have booked at the present moment.
      AS can definately draw decent crowds at most places they book.
      I also have no problem with seeing bands from back in the day at casinos/bars.
      Smaller venues are so much more fun. Festivals end up beings lines for everything, beer, food, restrooms, it all gets real old-real fast, at least in my opinion.

  1. Just heard the Sirius interview of Armored Saint. WOW! I never really knew the band. Going to buy all the AS albums I can get my hands on. Plus, Fates Warning. Thanks Eddie for the intro!
