Armored Saint launches two live bootlegs from Las Vegas; on the road now with Saxon!
Armored Saint are on the road now with metal legends, Saxon! The tour continues tonight in Washington D.C. with the remaining dates listed below. Earlier this summer, Armored Saint performed a special headlining gig at Count’s Vamp’d in Las Vegas to a sold out crowd. The show was captured on film and two tracks were cut to serve as official live bootlegs. Watch the classic Saint track “Dropping Like Flies” and a new song, “Mess,” now at 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. So far we’ve done Progpower Atlanta, Stafford Springs, CT and Portland, ME and every gig has been met with rabid fans. Love it! Looking forward to DC today and then we move into the Midwest. See you out there!”
