Armored Saint launches “Last Train Home (Live)” video online

This Friday (February 24th), Armored Saint will release their new live album, Carpe Noctum. Having toured with Metallica, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, The Scorpions, and many other artists since their inception in the early 80s, Armored Saint has always been a highly regarded live act – not only in their hometown of Los Angeles, but also around the world. The only official release to capture this, however, is 1989’s live album, Saints Will Conquer – until now, with Carpe Noctum, which was recorded at the band’s 2015 Wacken festival set, as well as their headlining show in Aschaffenburg, Germany.

For a preview of Carpe Noctum, a live video of “Last Train Home” from Wacken Open Air can be viewed at: metalblade.com/armoredsaint – where Carpe Noctum can also be pre-ordered in various formats. Purchase your exclusive shirt, vinyl, and more now!

Armored Saint will return to Ireland and the UK this March (appearing in some cities for the first time!), before playing select USA dates in May. Joey Vera (bass) comments: “We’re really looking forward to playing these select UK shows in March. We’ve never played in Dublin, Manchester, Birmingham or Wales, so we’re super excited to play in these places – as well as in Belfast, which we’d played only once before. We get a lot of requests from our UK fan base and since we were offered the headline spot at Hammerfest, we decided to hit some of these other UK cities. So, here we go!”

Armored Saint partner with Loudwire.com to debut “An Exercise In Debauchery” video; new headlining shows announced for Europe and USA

Armored Saint exclusively partner with Loudwire.com to debut new, official “An Exercise In Debauchery” music video; new headlining shows announced for Europe and USA

Debauchery video

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). The band exclusively partnered with Loudwire.com to debut the clip, which can be viewed here: http://loudwire.com

Armored Saint also recently launched a brand-new merch store at http://indiemerch.com/armoredsaint featuring a slew of new designs. They also revamped their website with tons of new content, which can be viewed at www.armoredsaint.com. Head there now for all tour dates, current news and additional band information.

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!”

Brian Cox (video director) comments: “This was by far the most challenging music video I have ever produced. Everything from the direction of the video down to the post-production editing techniques. It pushed my boundaries in every way possible, which is why this one has landed a spot as my personal favorite video to date!”

Armored Saint is front man John Bush and bassist Joey Vera, guitarist Phil Sandoval and his brother, drummer Gonzo Sandoval and guitarist Jeff Duncan – five masters of metal that combine to forge one of the genre’s most criminally-unsung forces. Win Hands Down debuted at #71 on the Billboard Top 200 current albums chart during its week of release. The album also reached #33 on the German Top 100 albums charts, and #32 on the Canadian Hard Music Charts. To purchase Win Hands Down, please visit: metalblade.com/armoredsaint

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.
