Armored Saint “Symbol Of Salvation” Anniversary Tour Announced

Armored Saint will be performing their album “Symbol Of Salvation” (1991) in its entirety on their upcoming July U.S. tour. Comments vocalist John Bush:

“‘Symbol Of Salvation‘! Arguably Armored Saint‘s most important record. These songs came out of us being dropped from Chrysalis Records and finding out about guitarist Dave Prichard developing Leukemia. The songs took on a much more emotional meaning than any other previous record.

We wrote songs of desperation like ‘Another Day‘ and ‘Last Train Home,’ experimental tunes like ‘Tainted Past‘ and ‘The Truth Always Hurts,’ and classic Saint rockers like ‘Reign Of Fire” ‘Dropping Like Flies,’ and the title track. After Dave passed, the band regrouped with Phil and Jeff returning as the guitar tandem. It was a family again.

Dave Jerden produced the record and this marked the beginning of Joey becoming the producer of the band. It’s going to be a memorable tour. Songs like ‘Burning Question‘ and ‘Spineless‘ we’ve never played live before. Come share it with us. Let’s make Dave proud.”
