Armored Saint are currently finishing up the recordings for their next studio album, which is expected to be released in 2020 via Metal Blade. According to a Facebook post Jeff Duncan has begun laying down guitar tracks with veteran producer/engineer Bill Metoyer and bassist/producer Joey Vera at the helm. “Armored Saint 2020 recording is back on… Jeff Duncan begins the guitar teams recording onslaught today! Bill Metoyer is back recording the guitars with producer & bass player Joey Vera leading the charge. Wishing them great sessions. All the best! Rock n Roll time! Enjoy!” John Bush said a while ago that the  band doesn’t want to wait for too long between albums, but he also noted: “we thought ‘Win Hands Down’ is an amazing record and we’re going to be hard-press to surpass it,” he said. “Armored Saint, it’s kind of the way our career has gone. The way I see it, it’s all about the quality, not the quantity, and I say that because I have to say that. (…) I’d like people to look back on us and go, ‘That was a cool band and they made some really cool records.’ It’s not like ‘They made 20 records and maybe five of them were good and there’s 15 bombs.’ I don’t want people to feel that way about Armored Saint. I say that because we kind of have to do that because it’s what our career has turned into. It would be cool to get out a record in less than five years. We went from ‘Revelations’ in 2000, to ‘La Raza’ in 2010. Granted, I was in Anthrax during that time. ‘Win Hands Down’ we cut in half and put it out in five. The tunes so far sound killer.”
