Comments ARMORED SAINT vocalist John Bush: "What up Euro Saint heads,

Long time no talk. Well that's about to end. After not performing on European soil since 2019, We're proud to announce that we will be returning to Europe in the summer of 2024.

We will be doing a combination of festivals: Wacken, Alcatraz, Rock of Ages, Brutal Assault and Rockstadt Extreme in Romania which will be a first, playing Romania for Saint!

We also will be doing some headline shows in Germany, Poland and The Netherlands as well as five dates in Britain!

We love Europe and have been frustrated that it has taken so long to come back but, we WILL make up for lost time! Thanks for your patience!

Looking forward to playing Punching the Sky songs as well as all the classics and maybe a few deep tracks.

See ya soon. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!"

ARMORED SAINT's most recent studio album, Punching The Sky, was released in 2020. The critically lauded full-length hit worldwide record charts including #4 on Billboard's Current Hard Music Albums chart, #6 on the Top New Artists chart, #16 on the Top Independent Albums chart, and #17 on the Current Rock Albums chart upon its first week of release.

A diverse, attitude-drenched collection, the record offers everything the band's faithful have come to expect from them while pushing their signature sound forward. Exploding to life with the crunchy, rousing "Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants" and not letting up until the closing ruthless riff of "Never You Fret," the record is possessed of an urgency and vigor which very much places it in the right now, but could only be the work of bassist Joey Vera, guitarists Phil Sandoval and Jeff Duncan, drummer Gonzo Sandoval, and vocalist John Bush. The record also features a few guest musicians further expanding its sonic palette, the whole thing kicking off with the sound of Uilleann Pipes, Vera finding player Patrick D'Arcy in Los Angeles and recruiting him to the cause. Guns 'N' Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed also contributes, Vera giving both him and D'Arcy some general directions and letting them loose, both of them delivering strong performances. The band's own Gonzo Sandoval plays an American Indian flute on "Never You Fret" - a first for ARMORED SAINT and their drummer. Also Jacob Ayala, the son of a childhood friend who is a drum major in high school, added some marching snare on one of the tracks, which really stands out.
