It was announced recently that Armored Saint would be playing gigs in Dublin on 20th March and Belfast on 21st March ahead of their appearance at HammerFest in Wales. Prior to those dates, the band release a live album called “Carpe Noctum” via Metal Blade Records. The album features recordings from 2015 when Armored Saint toured to support the release of the album “Win Hands Down” ( ). Metal Blade have provided the following press release.




On February 24th, Armored Saint is releasing their new live album, Carpe Noctum. 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.

For a preview of Carpe Noctum, a live video of "March of the Saint" from the Aschaffenburg show, filmed by Oliver "Bomber" Barth, can be viewed at: - where Carpe Noctum can also be pre-ordered in various formats. Purchase your exclusive shirt, vinyl, and more now!

Armored Saint will return to Ireland and the UK this March (appearing in some cities for the first time!), before playing select USA dates in May. Joey Vera (bass) comments: "We're really looking forward to playing these select UK shows in March. We've never played in Dublin, Manchester, Birmingham or Wales, so we're super excited to play in these places - as well as in Belfast, which we'd played only once before. We get a lot of requests from our UK fan base and since we were offered the headline spot at Hammerfest, we decided to hit some of these other UK cities. So, here we go!"
