Video footage of ARMORED SAINT performing the song "Nervous Man" on July 11, 2008 at the Rocklahoma festival in Pryor, Oklahoma can be viewed below (clip uploaded by YouTube user "zztopeurope2007").
ARMORED SAINT's last CD, "Revelation", came out in 2000 on the Metal Blade label.
ARMORED SAINT's May 31 concert in Mexico City had to be postponed because it "was booked on short notice," causing the band "to miss advertising deadlines and not have enough time to properly promote the show," the group explained in a statement. A new date has not yet been announced.
