NY metal band Pirosaint has released the first single from upcoming album "Pirosaint." The brand new track "A New Yesterday" is available to streaming below.
"A New Yesterday" features original singer Gonzalo Rodriguez, and this is his first recording with the band since the EP "New God" in 1997. The music was recorded at Oily Sound Studios in New Windsor, NY by Ignacio Orellana and the vocal tracks were recorded at Nacrur Studios by Andres Nacrur in Santiago, Chile. The mixing and mastering was done at Ignacio Figueroa's studio in Viña del Mar, Chile.
The album is expected to be release late 2013 or early 2014. Drummer Ignacio Orellana comments: "As we said it when we started in 1989 - Warriors will never Surrender - so, now in 2013 - We're here again, Now the Warrior has learned… bring metal back... bring Pirosaint back!
"Its been a real pleasure to work again with our original vocalist Gonzalo, it feels like home, and this song is about that, on how the band has always found the way back to metal. We are looking forward to this album, it will contain pure classic metal music. Hope you enjoy it like we are!" More...

Rigor Mortis guitarist Mike Scaccia passed away late last year, and the band had been scheduled to play a tribute show in June. However the group has now checked in with the following announcement about canceling the appearance due to drummer Harden Harrison being injured:
"We’ve got some really bad and sad news to announce. The Scaccianators will be unable to perform at the Mike Scaccia/Birthday Tribute Show on June 14 at Trees.
"Rigor Mortis drummer Harden Harrison had a freak accident the other day when he motorcycle fell over and he grabbed at a weird angle it to prevent it from falling. The weight from the motorcycle did severe damage to his shoulder. He just got the results from the MRI and it was bad news. He has a torn rotator cup and has to have surgery on June 6. He will be in a sling for at least two months.
"Of course Harden is really bummed as are all of us. But we will do this Scaccianator thing in the future… probably at the Rigor Mortis CD Release Show, or maybe even next year if we do the Scaccia Tribute Show again. The good news is we still have a killer lineup and I’ve already got some good ideas in what to do to make up for us not being able to play. We will post the info once we have decided on what exactly we will do.
"We are sorry… but this was just an accident and it’s just one of those things. Please wish Harden luck on his upcoming surgery and recovery. THANKS!!!"
