Wicked guitar riffs, light 'em up solos, a fierce banshee howl on vocals, and lock tight drums & bass mingle together to form the sinful ROCK EXPLOSION that is known as '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 hungry for something other than the spoon fed mass-media examples of what passes for modern rock music.
The band skillfully sets itself apart with killer guitar melodies, sleazy grooves, a tight musicianship and intense passion mixed with wild unpredictability. This isn't a band built out of cut & paste songwriting and phony auto-tuned vocal melodies. The Black Saints are true artists & musicians who mean what they play and leave it all on the stage for the crowd to revel in.
Being on the scene for three years, this hard rock five-piece have toured all over the Midwest and to the East Coast of the United States. Their artist debut arrived at Summerfest, the world's largest outdoor music festival, where they are pleased to be making their fourth consecutive return appearance this summer. 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, Sevendust, Blind Melon, Vains Of Jenna, and The Dirty Pearls. Soon to be added to this list are Theory of a Deadman and Puddle of Mudd where they will be opening up for them this summer at the Washington County Fair.
Coming off the heels of their highly praised debut EP, 'All Sinners Welcome', the band continues to demonstrate that they are on the top of their game with their brand new EP 'Hellbent & Heartless' that shows musical growth and continues to refine the ever present sleazy rock sound the band prides itself on. The new EP is being released on Dec. 7th and features standout tracks such as the high energy Sunset Strip vibed 'Top Notch Lady' and the swamp-voodoo, hard rock driven song ‘Capone’. The band also reveals their softer side with the epic rock anthem, ‘Amends’. Lyrically it is straight from the soul and speaks directly to the hearts of every person who has ever loved and lost. The depth and harmonic melody combine with the lyrics to shape a true modern classic. These songs continue to expose the Saints sound and gain new fans all over the world. Online internet radio station ‘Hard Rock Nights’ included The Black Saints on its '15 bands to watch in 2011' list of up & coming artists and the band continues to prove it by having steady growth in Colombia, Brazil, Canada, and recently the UK.
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. This is rock music as it was meant to be. This is how The Black Saints do it.
