On February 24th, the mighty ARMORED SAINT release their new live album, Carpe Noctum. Having toured with Metallica, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, The Scorpions and many other artists since their inception in the early 80s, ARMORED SAINT has always been a highly regarded live act; not only in their hometown of Los Angeles but also around the world.
However, the only official release to capture there live performance is 1989’s Saints Will Conquer.
With Carpe Noctum, which was recorded at the band’s 2015 Wacken festival set – as well as their headlining show in Aschaffenburg, Germany – the intensity of an Armored Saint show is clear to hear!

ARMORED SAINT will return to Ireland and the UK this March (appearing in some cities for the first time!), before playing select USA dates in May.
Joey Vera (bass) comments: “We’re really looking forward to playing these select UK shows in March. We’ve never played in Dublin, Manchester, Birmingham or Wales, so we’re super excited to play in these places – as well as in Belfast, which we’d played only once before. We get a lot of requests from our UK fan base and since we were offered the headline spot at Hammerfest, we decided to hit some of these other UK cities. So, here we go!”
