Saint Asonia Unleash New Single ‘Blow Me Wide Open’
With the July 31 release of their self-titled debut album just over a month away, Saint Asonia have unveiled the lyric video for the new single "Blow Me Wide Open." Check it out above, and take a look at the second installment of the band's "Making Of" video that chronicles the creation of the album posted below.
Saint Asonia are fronted by former Three Days Grace vocalist Adam Gontier, with the rest of the lineup consisting of Staind guitarist Mike Mushok, Eye Empire bassist Corey Lowery and ex-Finger Eleven drummer Rich Beddoe. Their album was produced by Johnny K (Disturbed, Megadeth). Those who pre-order Saint Asonia via iTunes or Amazon will instantly get "Blow Me Wide Open."
In a recent interview, Mushok stated, "I'm super proud of the way the record came out. I think it definitely exceeded what we were trying to accomplish; we definitely did it. I mean, the record kind of runs the gamut -- there's some pretty heavy stuff, and there's a couple of songs on there that are just beautiful songs."
The band made their live debut at last month's Rock on the Range. They'll be playing the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, Ky. on Oct. 3 and the Rock Allegiance festival in Chester, Pa. on Oct. 10. Look for Saint Asonia to announce more tour dates soon, and we'll pass them along as soon as they do.
