Armored saint have released a new single “One chain (make no prison)Originally released by People in 1970, the song, originally written by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, was later covered by The Four Tops, Santana and The Doobie Brothers. If you’re asking yourself, “Wait, what?” stop here. Armored Saint takes this classic song and metalizes it. It’s heavy, catchy and above all a face puncher!

Singer John Bush commented:

“(Bassist) Joey (Vera) came up with the idea to do the song. We’ve always been big fans of old school soul and R&B music, so it was a no-brainer. It’s got a great groove, perfect for our rhythm section, and Jeff (Duncan) and Phil’s (Sandoval) guitars scream. Moreover, the cool texts make it ideal for the ‘SAINT style’. Levi Stubbs (The Four Tops) was such a great singer; I was just trying to do him justice. I think this would make him a metal fan!

“One Chain (Don’t Make No Prison)” was produced by Joey Vera, mixed by Jay Ruston and mastered by Maor Applebaum.
