Comments Joey Vera of ARMORED SAINT: “We’re glad to finally be playing some shows in Europe this year. Because of some schedule problems we were not able to make some of the Festivals this Summer, but we are very excited to play some intimate and sweaty club appearances in Germany, as well as sharing the stage with Thin Lizzy, UFO and Hammerfall at the Lillehammer Rock Festival. We look forward to seeing you all out there, it’s been too long a time!”

La Raza also entered the official German Album Charts at #96 and won the magazine soundchecks of Metal Hammer and Rock Hard Germany!
“[John Bush] one of metal’s mightiest voices” The Orange County Register
“The Saint sound exuberant and fully bonded…a contemporary classic rock feel accessible enough to take on Audioslave or Velvet Revolver on their own terms, and win hard.” Terrorizer Magazine
“La Raza is balls out and brick heavy.” Outburn Magazine
“Simply put, this is the finest record of their career and almost a reaffirmation of the reasons why John and Joey turned down Metallica all those years ago.” Metal Hammer Magazine
