Not a beaver reference or the idiots Jeb or W (Tweedle Dee and Dumb or perhaps Dumb and Dumber). Nope, I’m talking about mighty vocalist John Bush and his pals in Armored Saint. Bush in Armored even tops his killer Anthrax stuff, and pre-dates it.
Check out their new song premiere HERE via L.A. Weekly. “An Exercise In Debauchery” has big west coast metal drums, the character of living storytelling in the vocal delivery, a huge chorus and rubbery bass paired with big guitars than span classic and hard rock to thrash and funk influence in one song.
Armored Saint are also proud to be joining the legendary Saxon for a few select, high profile shows across the country starting in NYC tonight, May 12th, through May 30th. The group will also only be performing one, very special headlining date in the US this year and it’s in Las Vegas at Count’s Vamp’d Rock Bar and Grill on July 11th, so don’t miss out if you are in the area.
Armored Saint is frontman John Bush and bassist Joey Vera, guitarist Phil Sandoval and his brother, drummer Gonzo Sandoval and guitarist Jeff Duncan – often referred to as a West Coast Manowar but really a much more thrashing underground force who have kept their integrity for many years of classic releases, indomitable.
