ARMORED SAINT has set "La Raza" as the title of the band's new album, due in March 2010 on Metal Blade Records. Bassist Joey Vera, who produced the CD, stated about the LP, "The result is just amazing, and I may be hasty when I say that this may be our best record ever. But all dopes in bands say that right? Well, this time I think it's true and although my reasons may be purely personal, I still deem it truth. The songs are great and it sounds great."
"La Raza" will feature the following songs, among others:
* Black Feet
* Loose Cannon
* La Raza
* Head On
* Get Off The Fence
* Left Hook From Right Field
"La Raza"was recorded at Tranzformer Studios, which is owned by Dave Jerdan (ALICE IN CHAINS, JANE'S ADDICTION), who produced ARMORED SAINT's 1991 classic "Symbol of Salvation" and Carlstrom, who engineered the same album.
