LA’s Armored Saint will be performing their first, and possibly only, shows for 2011 this summer! On July 9th, the band will once again be hitting the Sunset Strip in Hollywood for a show at the Key Club with Hirax. In August, the Saint plans to head overseas for several European appearances including their first ever Norwegian appearance at the Lillehammer Rock Festival with Thin Lizzy, Hammerfall, UFO and more. Tickets for the Key Club show are on sale now at ticketfly.com and 8thdaytix.com. Tickets for Lillehammer can be found at rocklillehammer.no.

“[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
