Eclipse Records has announced the signing of SAINT DIABLO. The band, which blends together elements of metal, hardcore, and Latino influence so well that the end result far exceeds the sum of its individual parts, has just completed work on its self-titled debut album for a summer release.

SAINT DIABLO is currently working on a video for the album's first single, "Watch Me Kill", with director David Brodsky of MyGoodEye (IN THIS MOMENT, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, BLEEDING THROUGH).

In the beginning, SAINT DIABLO was compared to bands like ILL NINO and SOULFLY (mostly due to their Latino roots). However, since their recent string of support slots opening for bands such as SLAYER, DEVILDRIVER, MUSHROOMHEAD, FEAR FACTORY and GWAR… It's easy to see that there's much more to this central Virginia quartet than meets the eye.

Consisting of Tito Quinones (vocals), Justin Adams (guitar), Trent Priest (drums), and Justin "Lefty" Randal (bass); SAINT DIABLO is poised to spearhead the front lines of hardcore metal, thanks in part to the band's Latin heritage. Their use of unpredictable melodies and interesting time signatures add a whole new dimension to their legacy, making this their strongest album yet, and with the release of this album, SAINT DIABLO prove that they are much more than "just another heavy band".

SAINT DIABLO prides itself by performing on stage, and bringing a raw energetic live show to the fans every night! "It could be a venue with just the door guy and the bartender or an arena that's slam-packed with people… we will rock it the same" says Justin Adams (guitar). Touring is the band's lifeblood, and being known as "tour dogs" is what this band is all about… Sharing their life's work with a devoted fan base that stretches all over the country, they think of their fans as friends and family.
