Saint Asonia Announce ‘Flawed Design’ Album, Release Sully Erna-Featuring Single ‘The Hunted’
Saint Asonia are back! The four-piece supergroup have just added to their star power, pulling in Godsmack's Sully Erna for a guest appearance on the new single, "The Hunted." The song can be heard in the lyric video at the bottom of this post.
"'The Hunted' is a song about struggling to find your place in life," singer Adam Gontier said. "It's a solid representation of the direction Saint Asonia is headed. I'm excited to share this with the world. And it's an awesome bonus having Sully from Godsmack guesting on it."
Guitarist Mike Mushok adds, "I'm very excited for everyone to get a taste of what the new Saint Asonia album is going to sound like and I think that having 'The Hunted' as our first single is a great representation of where the band is going. It's also a huge honor to have a longtime friend — Sully Erna, whose musicianship I've admired for years — be a guest on this song."
"The Hunted" is the first single from the forthcoming sophomore set from the band titled Flawed Design. The album will be released by Spinefarm Records this fall. And if you like what you hear of the track, be sure to pick it up in the format of your choosing here.
The Saint Asonia lineup has changed a bit since their debut a few years back. Gontier and Mushok are now rounded out by Adam's cousin Cale Gontier from Art of Dying on bass, while Mushok's fellow Staind bandmate, drummer Sal Giancarelli, is keeping the beat behind the kit.
"This new album is a giant step forward for us in many ways," says Adam Gontier. "Of course, there's those elements that have always been present in the music, like the heavy riffs and the vulnerability within the lyrics. But there's also a completely new element that takes things to a different level. Our goal is to raise the bar on every record, so we're incorporating a lot of different sounds and instruments on this one. For me, this is the best stuff I've written since 2005. I guess you'll have to hear it to judge for yourself!"
Stay tuned for album updates and keep an eye out for tour dates expected to be announced closer to the album release.
