THE BLACK SAINTS
Formed in early 2009, The Black Saints have been preaching the glorious intensity and frenetic power of the most classic elements of rock n’ roll and punk in their own delicious and wicked voice. They unabashedly revel in the sound of guitar-drenched rock revival that defines a new generation of independent music listener.
With just over two years in the scene, this hard rock four-piece has toured all over the Midwest and to the East Coast of the United States, playing over 80 shows in that short time. Their artist debut arrived at Summerfest, the world’s largest outdoor music festival, where they have performed every year since the band’s inception. Their high energy live performance has seen them share the stage with the likes of LA’s Steel Panther, founding member of KISS Ace Frehley, The Last Vegas, Gilby Clarke, John Corabi, Sevendust, Blind Melon, and The Dirty Pearls among other established artists.
Their debut EP, All Sinners Welcome, is a blistering collection of six sleazed-up high energy rockers. The record features their hit single Dead Man Walking and has already gotten airplay in Colombia, Australia, Belgium, Japan, South Africa, Canada, and the USA where the band has been featured by the Hard Rock Nights radio show in its ’15 bands to watch in 2011′ list of up & coming artists.
Things continue to look up for this promising young band of rock n’ rollers as they continue spreading their sound throughout the world through touring, airplay, & word of mouth. With the completion of their second tour of the year behind them, The Black Saints are currently in the studio with legendary Jeff Hamilton recording their third album slated to be released in February 2015.
This is rock music as it was meant to be. This is how The Black Saints do it.
