Having toured with Metallica, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, The Scorpions and many other artists since their inception in the early 80s, Armored Saint have 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 1989s live album, 'Saints Will Conquer'. Until now, with the imminent release of 'Carpe Noctum'.

In regards to Armored Saint's PledgeMusic campaign, the band said:

"Why PledgeMusic? Our fans have been extremely supportive over the years. We want to share the process of realizing this project with you by giving you the chance to be a part of it, from start to finish.

"How does it work? You place your orders and when the album is released, you will get your items in the mail. But throughout the process, you will have access to the regular updates that we will post on the page."

1. Win Hands Down (Live)
2. March Of The Saint (Live)

Armored Saint will return to the UK and Ireland this March and will be appearing in some cities for the very first time, before playing select USA dates in May.

Bassist Joey Vera told us: "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!"

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
