Legendary California-based ARMORED SAINT have issued the following update:
“Due to the nature of vague speculation albeit created by your authors here, Armored Saint are officially announcing that they’ve begun writing new songs for a new record due in 2009.
The band line-up is as it was on 2000’s Revelation and 1992’s Symbol of Salvation: John Bush (vocals), Jeff Duncan (guitars), Phil Sandoval (guitars), Joey Vera (bass) and Gonzo (drums).
The band has written close to 12 songs as of now and are ready to enter the recording studio in the next month or so.
Some working titles include: ‘Loose Cannon’, ‘Chilled’, ‘La Raza’ and ‘Black Feet’.
The band plans on entering the studio with bassist Joey Vera handling the engineering and producing duties.
Saint will be headlining one show in Los Angeles at the Key Club on March 6th 2009. Aside from the co-headline tour in Australia in March with DEATH ANEL and the headlining of the Keep it True Festival in Germany in April, the band has no further shows booked at this time. There are a few festivals in Europe during summer being looked at for booking but no confirmations as of yet.
