ARMORED SAINT/FATES WARNING bass player Joey Vera has issued the following update:
"For the first time ever, SAINT will be playing in Mexico City on Saturday, May 31st at Circo Volador. Also on the bill is L.A.'s own thrashers FUELED BY FIRE. We're very excited about playing in South America for the first time ever. Having been there before myself with ANTHRAX, I know how crazy the crowds are so we're expecting a totally sick show! If you're anywhere in the area, you don't want to miss this! I'm also playing a show with [22-year-old Estonian female singer] MARYA ROXX [real name: Maarja Kivi] on this Saturday, May 10th at Divebar in Las Vegas, NV. And playing right after us is PEARL (featuring Scott Ian of ANTHRAX). This is a free show so come out from the desert if you dare!
"As of now, SAINT has no plans to play a warm up show in Los Angeles before we head out to play the Rocklahoma festival on July 11th, but you never know. That could change..."
The ARMORED SAINT show in Mexico City will kick off a great week for Mexican ANTHRAX fans who will be able to see two of the band's former vocalists perform on the same stage, though five days apart ARMORED SAINT (featuring John Bush) on May 31 and Joey Belladonna (with his solo band BELLADONNA) on June 5 (also at Circo Volador).
ARMORED SAINT has been confirmed for this year's Rocklahoma festival, which will be held July 10-13, 2008 at the Catch The Fever Festival Grounds, four miles north of Pryor, Oklahoma. SAINT will play on Friday, July 11 on the main stage alongside KINGDOM COME, NIGHT RANGER, EXTREME and the original lineup of TRIUMPH.
ARMORED SAINT's last CD, "Revelation", came out in 2000 on the Metal Blade label.
