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
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

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!”
