BATTALION OF SAINTS: New 7-Inch By West Coast Punk Icons

Long-running West Coast punk icons, BATTAION OF SAINTS, today unload their brand new self-titled 7″, the EP now playing with a feature on the band at No Echo as the record hits the streets via Southern Lord.

Battalion-of-Saints-southern-lord-epBATTALION OF SAINTS was a major catalyst in accelerating the transition from the already upbeat, adrenaline-charged punk of the early 1980s in to feral, snarling hardcore punk of the highest quality and intensity. Led by founding vocalist George Anthony, the newest savage lineup includes drummer Mike Vega of Hirax, and bassist Matt Vicknair and guitarist Nate Javier, both of Angry Samoans. The band coming out heavy in 2015 with new material, some of which now impacts through the band’s self-titled 7″, which dispatches three ripping new tracks seeping of the same energetic venom as their legacy releases.

In celebration of the record’s release into the general population, No Echo is running a detailed interrogation of founding member Anthony where fans can also hear the entire new Battalion Of Saints EP.
