Rundown of songs for new upcoming album...

Well Saints n' Sinners, all songs have been chosen and demoed for the upcoming Outlaw Saint album, aptly titled "Failure's Not an Option." Now it's a matter of the current line-up learning the demos and recording them. They include:

1. Push Comes 2 Shove [advanced single -- written by Tank, Dave, Johnny, Hardy and former OS member Daryl, who recorded the bass parts -- that was already professionally recorded and released]

2. Bad Example 3. Bull by the Horns [older unused songs/demos]

4. StarCrossed Lovers 5. Crack of Dawn [songs from the early "Failure's Not an Option" writing sessions]

6. Back in Fighting Form 7. No Way Out 8. Evil 1-Track Mind [songs from the debut album that are rearranged, and will be re-recorded, by the current line-up]

9. The Way She Walked (the last song primarily written by late OS guitarist Ed Sylvers before his untimely passing in May of 2016)

10. Cheers 11. Never 4Get (Ode 2 Ed) [songs dedicated to Ed Sylvers, written by the current line-up]

...Stay tuned, more news on this album, as well as any on the band, are coming soon...

SEEKING BASSIST!!!

Outlaw Saint seeks a Twin Cities-bassist ASAP -- we DO currently have a back-up, but we prefer to have a permanent member as soon as we can. We are a gigging, serious-yet-fun original band (we also play some select covers) with a raw & bluesy Guns n' Roses & Aerosmith sound, a hi-NRG stage show, and an upcoming second album that we'll soon be recording (we're currently towards the end of the writing process). Seeking a team player at least 25-years-old (we're willing to go as young as 21 for the right candidate) who's dedicated and will help us make a mark on the local scene and beyond. Complete details on what we're looking for can be found on http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/muc/5830874173.html. If interested, feel free to PM me...

Old songs, new line-up!!!

Hey Saints n' Sinners, if you were ever curious to know what the current quartet sounds like, here's your chance!!! Until we have new songs up (or until we add our final member, coming soon), check out the raw, updated versions of our older songs, featuring Tank, Dave, Hardy, & Allie!!! Hope you enjoy...!!!

Ed Sylvers passes away...

To all friends and fans of Outlaw Saint: It is with a heavy heart that we must present the worst of news about the passing of our fellow brother-in-arms, and rhythm guitarist, Eddie Sylvers. On May 6th, he had gone into surgery to replace a faulty heart valve, and unfortunately a few days later his heart had stopped. They took him back into the OR, but after a few failed attempts, they couldn’t get it working properly , so they put him on life support. As of Sat May 14th, though, his family decided to take him off it as soon as all of his relatives had said their goodbyes...

Our deepest condolences go out to his family, because they are definitely losing one good man…

As far as the future of Outlaw Saint, we WILL continue on, for we know that Ed would have wanted it that way. Rest assured, there will be at least one, possibly two or more, musical tributes to our fallen comrade on our next album. But in the meantime, we must hold onto anymore details, until we spend a little time to mourn our friend and to plan our future. And for the record, the show WILL go on and we will NOT be canceling our June 25th gig. Stay tuned, more details are coming soon…!!!

We would also like to thank our friend Ricky for filling in, and we'll be having our last show with him on March 22nd...

"Updated" live tracks available!

We are soon planning to have new demos done with our current line-up. Until then, feel free to check out a few live tracks, including the addition of the extended version of "Get It On (All Night Long)" -- all of which features the band's "updated" sound with lead guitarist Shades. Also, we have two acoustic songs, one featuring Shades and the other with Chopper. Stay tuned, more recordings are coming soon...
