Armored Saint To Release “Symbol Of Salvation Live” CD/DVD In October

Armored Saint will be releasing a new live CD/DVD titled “Symbol Of Salvation Live” on October 22. The effort was recorded during the band’s July 13, 2018 show at The Gramercy Theatre in New York. That concert found the band performing “Symbol Of Salvation” in full.

Bassist Joey Vera said the following:

“I felt like showing Symbol… in another light was a great homage to the record itself. Also, having all the fans be there and part of that event is a way for us to say ‘Thank you!’ For, without them, we can’t do any of this in the first place.”

“If you would have told me 30 years ago that we’d be talking about this today, I would have told you that you were crazy. All we’ve ever wanted was to make our own music, to take joy and take pride in doing it. The fact that we also have very loyal fans who continue to support what we do is the best icing on this cake. I try to look at our records as objectively as possible, and when I can do that, I’m very proud that this record is a huge part of the band’s legacy, and I am extremely humbled that I’m a part of that.”

Frontman John Bush also commented:

“It links our past to our future. I believe it was the time that we honestly thought we could do whatever we wanted to musically and it would somehow work. There’s a magical feeling about it and it continues to gain mystique every year.”

Notably, the vinyl and digital editions of the release will also include demo tracks that were recorded with late guitarist Dave Prichard during the “Symbol Of Salvation” sessions. Bush added the following about that:

“They’re songs that didn’t make the record, however, there still is a vibe to those tunes, plus Dave’s playing is on them, so that makes them special.”
