Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at 2:21 PM (PST)

With over twenty studio albums under their belt, SAXON has made their steadfast dedication to creating a dynamic body of a work a staple of their career. With no signs of letting up, the SAXON Juggernaut continues with the release earlier this year of their latest album THUNDERBOLT and an ongoing World Tour that’s going from strength to strength.

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.

ARMORED SAINT Tour with Saxon dates are below.

Saxon Cancels Australian Tour

Posted by jillettinger on Thursday, February 17, 2011 at 1:35 PM (PST)

Australian Saxon fans will be disappointed by recent news that the band has been forced to cancel their Down Under tour plans.

Calling it a decision they looked at from all sides and “did not make lightly,” the British heavy metalers wrote in a letter to their fans, “We apologise for cancelling but due to the bad weather conditions we had in the UK during the recording sessions we have suffered various delays and we can’t just drop the production and leave.”

With producers booked and engineers waiting to finish production of “Call To Arms,” their forthcoming release on Steamhammer Records, the band has chosen to finish this project as scheduled, which means sacrificing the scheduled tour.

Saxon has not yet announced any plans to reschedule Australian tour dates.
