ARMORED SAINT – Announces North American Tour; Band To Perform ‘Symbol Of Salvation’ In Its Entirety

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , on March 1, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Armored Saint - Summer 2018 - tour flyer - #333MO222ILMFG103

This summer, ARMORED SAINT will embark on a North American tour commemorating their classic Symbol Of Salvation full-length. On this special thirteen-date run, the band will perform the record in its entirety, with select shows to be recorded for a live DVD. Support will be provided by label mates Act Of Defiance. See all confirmed dates below.

Frontman John Bush comments:Symbol Of Salvation! Arguably ARMORED SAINT‘s most important record. These songs came out of us being dropped from Chrysalis Records and finding out about guitarist Dave Prichard developing Leukemia. The songs took on a much more emotional meaning than any other previous record. We wrote songs of desperation like ‘Another Day’ and ‘Last Train Home,’ experimental tunes like ‘Tainted Past’ and ‘The Truth Always Hurts,’ and classic SAINT rockers like ‘Reign Of Fire,’ ‘Dropping Like Flies,’ and the title track. After Dave passed, the band regrouped with Phil and Jeff returning as the guitar tandem. It was a family again. Dave Jerden produced the record and this marked the beginning of Joey becoming the producer of the band. It’s going to be a memorable tour. Songs like ‘Burning Question’ and ‘Spineless’ we’ve never played live before. Come share it with us. Let’s make Dave proud.”

ARMORED SAINT w/ Act Of Defiance:

7/10/2018 The Chance – Poughkeepsie, NY

7/11/2018 Sellersville Theater – Sellersville, PA

7/13/2018 The Gramercy Theatre – New York, NY

7/14/2018 Brighton Music Hall – Boston, MA

7/15/2018 Petite Campus – Montreal, QC

7/17/2018 Mod Club – Toronto, ON

7/18/2018 The Cambridge @ House Of Blues – Cleveland, OH

7/20/2018 Shelter – Detroit, MI

7/21/2018 Reggie’s – Chicago, IL

7/22/2018 Shank Hall – Milwaukee, WI

8/16/2018 Count’s Vamp’d – Las Vegas, NV

8/17/2018 Parish @ House Of Blues – Anaheim, CA

8/18/2018 The Regent – Los Angeles, CA

To further celebrate the legacy of this album, Metal Blade Records will reissue Symbol Of Salvation on CD and LP on May 18th. The LP will feature a vinyl remastering from Patrick W. Engel as part of the “Metal Blade Originals” series. Special treatment and 400-gram heavy cardboard spine sleeves (inside out print), 60x60cm two-sided artwork posters and 250-gram inserts guaranteed! The CD will include four bonus tracks. Preorder your copies now via Indie Merch, EMP, or eBay!

After being dropped by Chrysalis Records in 1988, ARMORED SAINT began writing for a new record and searched for a new label. During 1989, founding guitarist/songwriter Dave Prichard was diagnosed with Leukemia. In January 1990, Prichard was hospitalized for a bone marrow transplant but succumbed to the treatment, passing away on February 28th, 1990. By this time, the band was writing as a four-piece, with Dave being the sole guitarist; they had written twenty-five songs and demoed all of them.

Metal Blade Records CEO/founder Brian Slagel approached ARMORED SAINT and offered a recording deal in late spring of 1990. They regrouped with original guitarist Phil Sandoval and Jeff Duncan, who was hired as a touring guitarist during a 1989 tour with King Diamond. The recording of this new album – which would become Symbol Of Salvation – began in the winter of 1990 with producer Dave Jerdan (Alice In Chains, Janes Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers), and it was engineered by Brain Carlstrom (Alice In Chains, The Offspring, Rob Zombie). During recording, the band used a guitar solo from a demo track played by Dave, and included it on the song “Tainted Past.”

ARMORED SAINT toured with the likes of The Scorpions, Suicidal Tendencies, Wrathchild America, Sepultura, and more, in support of Symbol Of Salvation. Now, in 2018, the band brings back these classic tracks to the live setting, for fans to enjoy once again, in honor of Dave’s memory.

The cover story is accompanied by the release of an extremely limited-edition Revolver x Judas Priest streetwear collection. The collection, which features a hoodie and long sleeve tee, is available exclusively via revolvermag.com (https://shop.revolvermag.com/collections/judas-priest-x-revolver-collaboration).

Thompson and how his early years listening to metal shaped his future, Swedish goth rockers Tribulation, a look back at Pantera’s 1991 visit to Moscow for Monsters of Rock, and an interview with shredder/berserker Zakk Wylde.

The iconic vocalist unpacks the metaphors that he employs to tell a story of resisting divisive, fear-based manipulation at the hands of authority figures, reveals his deep connection to these issues and explains his view of Priest’s community of “metal maniacs” as a unifying force that can help people overcome personal difficulties.

STRYPER TO RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM, “GOD DAMN EVIL,” APRIL 20TH

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , on February 9, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

From: Nashville Publicity Group:

Friday, February 9, 2018 — Iconic rock band STRYPER will celebrate their 35th anniversary with the upcoming release of their 10th studio album, God Damn Evil, due April 20, 2018 from Frontiers Music SRL. Produced by frontman Michael Sweet, the band returns with their most powerful album to date, doubling down on the hard rock/heavy metal sound that earned them a worldwide fan base.

God Damn Evil is available now for pre-order at all major retailers including Amazon and iTunes. Limited edition pre-order offers are also available (see below).

Fans were initially introduced to the new album title and cover art via a social media post on February 5th, which quickly went viral causing a significant amount of conversation from STRYPER fans.

“We thought long and hard about this title,” says Michael in response to thousands of fan comments. “It was actually considered quite a few years ago and it just didn’t feel like the right time. Now, with all the evil in the world that we see around us on a daily basis, it made perfect sense. It’s a very bold statement yet a prayer asking God to damn/condemn evil. Nothing more, nothing less.”

God Damn Evil is the first release since the recent addition of bass player Perry Richardson, who joins original members Michael Sweet (vocals and guitar), Robert Sweet (drums) and Oz Fox (guitar). Perry is best known as a founding member of the multi-platinum band Firehouse.

STRYPER fans are getting their first look into the upcoming album with today’s release of the epic lyric video for the song, “Take It To The Cross.” View the Lyric video here: https://youtu.be/OWvdLnP8m3I or below:

“’Take It To The Cross’ is our answer to many fans asking us to do something a little heavier and even bordering on thrash,” says Michael. “The verses are heavy with a vocal and lyric delivery that’s bold and relevant yet the chorus kicks in with a fast, thrashy vibe. We brought in Matt Blanchard (Act of Defiance / Shadows Fall) to handle the vocal growl on the choruses and the end vamp. This song is 100% high octane.”

“Take It To The Cross” can be streamed at Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, etc. Those links available HERE: http://radi.al/GodDamnEvil.

Rocking since 1984, STRYPER is responsible for such classic ’80s metal albums as Soldiers Under Command, To Hell with the Devil and In God We Trust. In fact, STRYPER is the first band to ever have two songs in MTV’s Top 10 simultaneously with their hits “Free” and “Honestly.” After a sabbatical for much of the 1990’s, STRYPER returned strong in the early 21st century. To date, the Dove Award-winning and GRAMMY-nominated band has sold over 10 million records worldwide.

God Damn Evil is the follow-up to STRYPER’s ninth studio album, Fallen (Frontiers Music SRL), which released in 2015 and debuted at the top of the Billboard charts. 2016’s 30th Anniversary To Hell With The Devil Tour saw record crowds and featured the band’s largest sound and lighting production in nearly two decades.

STRYPER will return to the road this year, kicking off the God Damn Evil World Tour at the at the Frontiers Rock Festival in Milan, Italy on April 28th. Tour dates will be posted as confirmed at http://www.stryper.com/Tour/tour.html.

“We all see and hear the darkness that surrounds us in our society but with faith and love, we’ll always have hope,” says Michael. “That’s what STRYPER is all about – powerful music and a message that builds foundations, not walls. We couldn’t be more excited about God Damn Evil as it showcases our undying love for what we do and why we do it.

Track Listing for God Damn Evil:
1. Take It To The Cross
2. Sorry
3. Lost
4. God Damn Evil
5. You Don’t Even Know Me
6. The Valley
7. Sea Of Thieves
