ARMORED SAINT have launched a PledgeMusic campaign to make a new live album!
Los Angeles heavy metal outfit ARMORED SAINT have revealed plans to record a new live album, funded entirely using crowdfunding platform PledgeMusic. The as-yet-untitled release will be the band’s first live album since 1988’s Saints Will Conquer, and follows up the 2015 release of their seventh studio album Win Hands Down.
To create the new album, the band chose to record their performance at 2015’s Wacken Festival, as well as a headline show in Aschaffenburg, Germany.
A statement from the band reads:
“Why PledgeMusic? Our fans have been extremely supportive over the years. We want to share the process of realizing this project with you by giving you the chance to be a part of it, from start to finish. How does it work? You place your orders here and when the album is released, you will get your items in the mail. But throughout the process, you will have access to the regular updates that we will post on this page.”
The album is now available for pre-order in various formats and bundles, with every “pledge”/purchase receiving a digital download of the tracks, plus exclusive behind-the-scenes content (including footage from Wacken 2015, Ozzfest 2016, the band’s appearances with QUEENSRYCHE and more!).
