  • ARMORED SAINT announce first South American Tour!

    Armored Saint will be heading down to South America for the first time ever! The shows are scheduled for June and include performances in Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Chile, and Colombia. The band is currently at work on a set list full of songs from throughout their entire catalog - it's an event not to miss for South American fans!

    Vocalist John Bush comments: "Finally!! Armored Saint brings its soulful heavy rock to the passionate continent of South America. I went to South America twice with Anthrax and can easily say that those were some of the best shows I did in my life. The rabid fans of places like Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Chile are die hards of music. Their enthusiasm is unprecedented. Also looking forward to going to Colombia for the first time. Can't wait!! The Saint's Latin roots should be in full force. It's a perfect match.''

    Bassist Joey Vera adds: "After 35 long years we're finally going to tour in South America. The long wait was bitter, but the experience playing for you all will be oh so sweet. See you soon."

    Armored Saint tour dates
    June 2 - Buenos Aires, AR @ Uniclub
    June 3 - Sao Paulo, BR @ Fabrique Club
    June 5 - Lima, PE @ Discoteca Cocos
    June 7 - Santiago, CL @ La Batuta

    Having toured with Metallica, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, The Scorpions, and many other artists since their inception in the early 80s, Armored Saint has always been a highly regarded live act - not only in their hometown of Los Angeles, but also around the world. The only official release to capture this, however, is 1989's live album, Saints Will Conquer - until now, with Carpe Noctum, which was recorded at the band's 2015 Wacken festival set, as well as their headlining show in Aschaffenburg, Germany.

  • MOONSPELL Announce Latin America Tour On April 2018!

    Portuguese dark metal pioneers MOONSPELL are proud to announce their upcoming Latin America tour for April 2018! After last year's cancellation beyond the band's control, MOONSPELL will finally return to South America while kicking off on April 22nd in Bogotá, Colombia.

    MOONSPELL's brand new and 13rd studio album titled '1755', has been successfully released on November 3rd 2017 with Napalm Records. 1755 marks the year of the horror when a giant earthquake destroyed the band's hometown and city of Lisbon. Almost 100.000 souls lost their lifes, and this tragic event still belongs to one of the disastrous catastrophes in European history and nature. From the first second, the conceptual dramaturgy of MOONSPELL's new album feels like a detonation of the mind. Playful and mean-spirited. '1755' is their magnum opus, a musical masterpiece and the dark adventure into medieval times. Produced by Tue Madsen ( (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Dark Tranquility, Dir En Grey, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter ), naturally this album is sang completely in portuguese and will outclass all standards you have ever heard from MOONSPELL before: Emotional, technical and completely earthshaking!
