Video footage of doom metal legends SAINT VITUS performing a brand new song, "Blessed Night" (which the band has been playing for the past few months) on the last night of the 2011 Metalliance Tour with HELMET, CROWBAR, RED FANG, KYLESA, THE ATLAS MOTH and HOWL on April 5 at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California can be viewed below.
In a recent interview with Hellbound.ca, SAINT VITUS frontman Scott "Wino" Weinrich stated about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band's next album, "We're already doing new material. I wrote the lyrics to a song we played live on our last European tour. It went over really well. We're getting together to work on an album in June or July. We're going to go to (drummer) Henry's (Vasquez) house and record."
When asked why he thinks SAINT VITUS' music continues to resonate, Wino replied, "Because it comes from the gut. The music has that low tone and it hits you in those emotional places. I've always tried to make the lyrics just as interesting as the music. It's always been a little bit dark but I'm not drawn to the happy stuff. I like music that grabs you by the balls."
