Armored Saint have launched their new live video for March of the Saint and announced UK, Ireland and USA tour dates.

The band’s new live album, Carpe Noctum, will also be released on the 24th of February. The new record was recorded at the band’s 2015 Wacken festival set, as well as their headlining show in Aschaffenburg, Germany.

After touring with Metallica, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper and The Scorpions Armored Saint have built up a reputation for their shows – but the upcoming release will be only their second album to give fans an experience of the real thing.

The band are also running a PledgeMusic campaign and every pledge will receives a digital download of Carpe Noctum, plus behind-the-scenes content including footage from Wacken 2015, plus 2016’s Ozzfest and Queensryche appearances.

In regards to the PledgeMusic campaign, Armored Saint said: “Why PledgeMusic? Our fans have been extremely supportive over the years. We want to share the process of realizing this project with you by giving you the chance to be a part of it, from start to finish.

“How does it work? You place your orders here and when the album is released, you will get your items in the mail. But throughout the process, you will have access to the regular updates that we will post on this page.”

The band will return to Ireland and the UK this March before playing select USA dates in May. Bassist Joey Vera added: “We’re really looking forward to playing these select UK shows in March.

“We’ve never played in Dublin, Manchester, Birmingham or Wales, so we’re super excited to play in these places – as well as in Belfast, which we’d played only once before.

“We get a lot of requests from our UK fan base and since we were offered the headline spot at Hammerfest, we decided to hit some of these other UK cities. So, here we go!”
