The Saint Bartlett Band by Sarah Jurado

In order to create a live reproduction of the grandiose recordings of his upcoming record, Saint Bartlett, Damien Jurado enlisted eight musicians from Seattle band Kay Kay and his Weathered Underground to join him on tour as The Saint Bartlett Band. The resulting concerts will be unlike anything Damien Jurado fans have seen before – the songs done justice with an orchestra adding violin, cello, tuba, french horn and keys.

Richard Swift, Damien’s Secretly Canadian Soul Brother, talented filmmaker and producer/engineer of Saint Bartlett, has provided us with a couple of album trailers to get officially stoked.  Check them out at our vimeo here and here.

Saint Bartlett is now available for pre-order here. All pre-orders receive an instant download of the album!

Saint Bartlett will be released by Secretly Canadian on May 25th in North America (May 24th in the UK).

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
