Hard rock juggernaut SAINT ASONIA, featuring former Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier and Staind guitarist/founding member Mike Mushok, have announced their second EP of the year. The six-song Extrovert EP will arrive on November 18 via Spinefarm. Pre-order it here.
Today, the band shared the visualizer for the new single „Wolf.“ Watch and listen here.
„Wolf“ is a bit of a battle cry and an anthem of survival. It’s also a riff-driven, melodically memorable banger, as the band has become known for.
„This song was inspired by the chaos, the darkness, and the violence that so many people have to live with in this world,“ says Gontier. „So often we have to fight, scratch, and crawl our way out of unbearably difficult times, making our way to the surface for a moment, just to be thrown back in. It kinda feels like we’re always under attack. ‚Wolf‘ is about being backed into a corner and fighting just to stay alive.“
EXTROVERT EP TRACK LISTING:
„Break the Mold“
„Chasing the Light“
Extrovert follows the Introvert EP, which dropped this past summer and featured seven new tracks, including a Weeknd cover. Get it here.
SAINT ASONIA — rounded out by Cale Gontier [bass] and Cody Watkins [drums]— have perfected a fusion of gut-punching grooves, intricate fretwork, airtight songwriting, and soaring choruses.
For as much as Gontier and Mushok had achieved in multiplatinum rock acts Three Days Grace and Staind, respectively, the musicians also architected the framework for a singular legacy together in SAINT ASONIA. 2015’s self-titled SAINT ASONIA kicked open the door as Loudwire crowned them „Best New Artist“ at the Loudwire Music Awards. The 2019 follow-up, Flawed Design, only ingratiated a growing fan base. Lead single „The Hunted,“ featuring Sully Erna of Godsmack, racked up 13 million Spotify streams, bringing their cumulative streams near the 100 million-mark. New Noise awarded it 4.5-out-of-5 stars and urged, „Any fan of hard rock (whether they’ve listened in recently or not) should give Saint Asonia a spin.“ Meanwhile, Loudwire named it among „The 50 Best Rock Albums of the Year.“ Along the way, they hit the road with the likes of Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Alter Bridge, and Mötley Crüe.
