Amongst their ranks, Saint Asonia feature both former Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier along with guitarist Mike Mushok from grunge-rockers Staind. This fact alone should give you some idea of what to expect from the band and, yes, it is exactly that. With little in the way of surprises and taken from their upcoming debut album, “Better Place” is an angsty slice of alt-rock that could quite easily have been lifted from the Three Days Grace back catalogue.

As was the case with their other bands, “Better Place” may be full of fuck you-angst but it has that radio-friendly twist to it that has not only seen it fly up the rock radio charts, but also hints that, come the July 31st release date for their self-titled debut album, Saint Asonia have a ready-made audience who are quite willing to lap this sort of thing up all day long.

So, if you’re a fan of either Gontier or Mushok’s other work then don’t hesitate and get your pre-orders for the debut album in now because, as a taster, “Better Place” promises you won’t be disappointed.

Run Time: 3:35
Release Date: June 9, 2015

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
