Armored Saint confirms headlining shows and festival appearances in Europe for July!
LA's Armored Saint are excited to announce that they'll be heading to Europe in July. At Sonisphere in France, the Saint will be playing on the same day as Ghost, Evanescence, Wolfmother, Soulfly, Lacuna Coil, and more. Band Your Head's list of confirmed band's includes Arch Enemy, Exodus, Thin Lizzy, Primordial, and more. also features Napalm Death, Sepultura, and many others. Along with the festival appearances, Armored Saint will be playing three headlining shows with UK's Collapse as the supporting act.

Armored Saint's John Bush elaborates on the dates: "I'm very excited for our upcoming summer dates. First, Armored Saint has never played in France. Not only are we doing the awesome Sonisphere show, we are also doing a headline club show in Paris. About fucking time. Also, we're extremely pumped to play the Bang Your Head festival again. It's one of the best metal shows in Germany. Plus, we get to be part of the DONG festival. First time there. The tour wouldn't be complete without playing in Holland, which is the first country Armored Saint ever played in Europe back in 1989; and Zurich, where it will be our first time to headline in the beautiful country of Switzerland. Armored Saint doesn't tour all that often so come out and join us, cause you're never sure when or if we'll be touring again. We'll be playing songs from our entire catalog as well as from our most recent record, La Raza, which we're extremely proud of. See ya this summer."
