Saint Asonia (Staind, Ex-Three Days Grace, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Better Late Than Never”

Saint Asonia (Staind, ex-Three Days Grace, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “Better Late Than Never.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Introvert,” which will be released on July 1. Vocalist Adam Gontier commented:

“This is a song I wrote about growth. I’ve battled drug and alcohol addiction for years and years. I’ve been in and out of rehab, trying to change and trying to become a better person. I finally hit a point in my life back in 2017, where I was just done. All of that back and forth with addiction just took its toll. I was tired — and motivated. I got clean and have stayed that way since. It took a long time to become the person I wanted to. As they say, better late than never…”

Saint Asonia (Staind, Ex-Three Days Grace, Etc.) Premiere “Above It All” Music Video

Saint Asonia (Staind, ex-Three Days Grace, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Above It All.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Introvert,” which will be released on July 1.

Vocalist Adam Gontier commented:

“‘Above It All‘ is about rising above all the chaos, negativity, judgment and living the life you want to, not the life that is expected of you by others. The song was written during the first lockdown in Canada after COVID hit. None of us had ever been through anything like this in our lifetimes and no one really knew how we as a society should act and deal with a global pandemic. I really felt it gave people a great opportunity to search inside themselves about how best to deal with these crazy circumstances and choose how they want to live their lives coming out of this.”

“Introvert” Track Listing:

01. “Above It All”
02. “Better Late Than Never”
03. “Chew Me Up”
04. “So What”
05. “Left Behind”
06. “Bite The Bullet”
07. “Blinding Lights” (The Weeknd cover)

Saint Asonia (Staind, ex-Three Days Grace, etc.) have released a cover of The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights.“ Frontman Adam Gontier said the following about that:

“It’s always interesting deciding on a song to cover. In this case, I just wanted to do something that people wouldn’t necessarily expect. I mean, any way you look at it, ‘Blinding Lights’ is a GREAT song. It was fun to give it our flavor, and add our style to it. Also, both we and The Weeknd are Canadian, specifically from the Toronto area, so that made it even sweeter. We’re all pumped with how it turned out. It hits hard.”

“Although we’ve always been intrigued by the idea of a ‘rock cruise,’ there are others in the space that already do it really well. For DWP to do a cruise, we had to have something that would make our voyage uniquely ours. The opportunity to work with Sixthman and add a festival on a private island in Belize gave us the twist we were looking for and the comfort of working with a best-in-class partner like the Sixthman team. When else will you ever have the chance to see Rob Zombie and Chevelle on a private island with 3,000 of your closest friends? This is exactly the once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience that DWP likes to create for our amazing fans.”

Sixthman CEO Anthony Diaz added:

“Today’s announcement of the high octane lineup and highly immersive vacation experience showcases the commitment of Danny Wimmer Presents and Sixthman to curate the ultimate vacation for rock fans that includes days and nights of music and more at sea plus a full festival day on a decked out private island. The inaugural VORAGOS event will be a truly mind-blowing festival next February and for years to come!”
