Los Angeles, California’s ARMORED SAINT are set to release their seventh studio album this summer. The album, “Win Hands Down”, is all things Armored, a vintage crush of classic power propelled by a cathartic blast of life in the year 2015. The album is scheduled for release on June 2nd in North America, with release dates for June 1st in Europe/UK, and May 29th in DE/CH/AT, via Metal Blade Records. A brand new video was recently shot by director Andrew Nethery, and is available for streaming now at metalblade.com/armoredsaint, where album pre-order bundles are also ready for order. Additionally, a behind the scenes video from the photo shoot for the “Win Hands Down” album cover is on youtube now HERE.
“Win Hands Down” – mixed by Jay Ruston, produced by Joey Vera.

VH1 Classic’s centerpiece in original programming, That Metal Show, returned earlier this year with an episode that welcomed Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed alongside John Bush and Joey Vera of Armored Saint. Jamey Jasta talked about the upcoming Hatebreed tour, the podcast he hosts, recounted how a recent tour they did with Black Label Society was one of the best he had ever done, and even gave a compilation CD to each member of the audience. John Bush and Joey Vera talked about their forthcoming seventh album Win Hands Down, their upcoming tour with Saxon and recalled memories from their time in Anthrax. Watch the full episode, along with bonus clips of John and Joey, on vh1.com now HERE.
