JOHN BUSH OF ARMORED SAINT JOINS THE SHOW
Armored Saint lead singer John Bush is no stranger to the show. He’s been on to do discuss the release of albums like La Raza, and Carpe Diem. He’s also done story tellers episodes based on his time in both Armored Saint, and his era of Anthrax. As well as lent his comments to our Classic Albums episode on Anthrax’s Sound Of White Noise.
John joins us to discuss Armored Saint’s upcoming release Punching The Sky. We discuss various tracks off of the album. The band not trying to revisit any of the previous hits. How he feels that the band’s guitarists have always been underrated. Why release the album now, and not wait for the pandemic to clear up? The band’s live stream on October 10th.
Of course we discuss Anthrax as well. Last time we spoke he brought up the possibility of going out and doing shows focusing on his era of the band. I ask him why that never came to fruition. I also ask him about possibly doing shows with the band to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Sound Of White Noise. To which he answers:
It would have to be something that got the blessing of Joey Belladonna. I wouldn’t want Joey to feel like I’m getting pushed out again
He goes on to discuss how reconnecting with members of the band these past few years is a lot more important than thinking about anything else related to Anthrax.
