Saint Asonia Share Fan-Made Video For “Ghost”

Saint Asonia have shared a fan-made video for their song “Ghost.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Flawed Design.”

Frontman Adam Gontier (ex-Three Days Grace) commented:

“We invited our fans to show us what the song means to them and we wanted to work with them to create the visual to go along with it. I’ve actually never done something like this in the past. It’s been a great process, and the video turned out awesome.”

He also added the following about the song:

“It’s about losing someone in your life — whether it be to death, drugs, sickness. It’s about trying to put the pieces back together after going through something unbearable. Sonically, it’s got a different feel. It’s not just a straightforward song written around a specific riff. It’s probably one of my favorite songs we’ve ever written as a band.”

Godsmack’s Sully Erna Recruits Shinedown, Papa Roach, Staind, Etc. Members For “Live From The Living Room” Charity Fundraiser

Sully Erna (Godsmack) has announced a “Live From The Living Room” fundraiser for The Scars Foundation. The event will stream on the frontman’s YouTube channel and the Foundation’s Facebook page on August 6 at 5:00 p.m PT / 8:00 p.m. ET and it will feature Godsmack, Erna solo (feat. Chris Lester and Máiréad Nesbitt), Staind’s Aaron Lewis, Shinedown’s Brent Smith and Zach Myers, Papa Roach, Saint Asonia’s Mike Mushok and Adam Gontier, Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt, and Sevendust’s Clint Lowery.

Erna commented:

“I had always looked for ways to give back and help others in some way after reaching certain levels of success in my life. But I could never really figure out where to dedicate my time and attention and what was important to me, or where I even had experience to offer. One day, I started thinking about my own life and being a survivor of such an extremely rough inner city and that’s where all my experience was. It was all the battle wounds and scars I’ve carried that made me stronger and made me the man I am today. Instead of being ashamed of my imperfections, or hiding from them, I learned how to embrace them and grow from those experiences. I want to share that with people and lend my stories, my experiences, and my theories on how you can overcome challenging times rather than letting them ruin your life.

And that’s why The Scars Foundation is so important to me. It’s personal. It’s my life. And it’s important that people who struggle with these mental health issues and ‘imperfections,’ or ‘scars,’ as we call them, learn how to embrace them, and show them to the world loudly and proudly!

I hope the work we do with The Scars Foundation inspires people to come forward and share their stories so that those stories inspire more people to come forward and break the silence and internal struggles.

Just remember: you’re not alone. And we’re all imperfectly perfect. Just the way we’re supposed to be!”

In addition to the livestream, fans can also participate in a charity auction HERE.

Saint Asonia Announce Virtual Acoustic Performances

Saint Asonia have announced a series of virtual acoustic performances that will be livestreamed on social media accounts belonging to various radio stations. Adam Gontier (ex-Three Days Grace) commented:

“It’s been really important to myself and the band to do everything we can to try and stay connected with fans, and with the people who play our music. We wouldn’t be where we are without the amazing love and support rock radio has shown us over the years. We ended up having this really unique opportunity to play live acoustic shows for a number of stations throughout the month of May, and we’re really excited to do it. During this strange and somewhat disappointing period in time, it’s the least we can do. We’re stoked to do a virtual tour, and play some shows for all of the people who support us. It also gives us a chance to introduce our new single ‘Blind‘ to people. It’s a song about pushing through to the end, no matter how tough it gets. It’s a strong sentiment, considering what the world is going through.”

Alter Bridge Postpone Spring Tour With Black Stone Cherry & Saint Asonia

“We hoped that it wouldn’t come to this, but as some of you have already heard unfortunately, due to recent changes around the globe created by the recent Covid-19 situation, the May headline tour of the United States with Black Stone Cherry and Saint Asonia will be postponed.

The health and safety of everyone attached to these shows (fans, artists, crew members, venue staff, etc) is our main priority. More information regarding rescheduled dates will be available in the future.

We look forward to the time when we can all come together and celebrate music as the community and family we are. Until then, Stay Home, Stay Healthy and Stay Safe…”
