EDITORS’ NOTES

Featuring members from post-grunge acts Three Days Grace and Staind, Saint Asonia qualifies as alt-rock royalty, and their radio-ready debut proves them worthy of the throne. With its bruising guitar chug and sky-punching chorus, “Better Place” opens the album on a pummeling note. And the record only gets heavier and more emotionally powerful from there: “King of Nothing” brings their monolithic stomp to new levels of heaviness, while the delicate, acoustic-based “Trying To Catch Up With the World” reveals a masterful softer side.

About Saint Asonia

A Canadian rock/post-grunge "supergroup" featuring ex-Three Days Grace vocalist/guitarist Adam Gontier, Staind guitarist Mike Mushok, Eye Empire bassist Corey Lowery, and former Finger Eleven drummer Rich Beddoe, Saint Asonia came into being after Mushok and Gontier began writing together just after the latter's split with his flagship band. Impressed with what they had managed to conjure up, the duo enlisted the rest of the crew and headed into the studio with producer Johnny K (Disturbed, Megadeth, Sevendust) to begin work on a debut long-player. "Better Place," the first single from the record, was issued in May 2015, followed by the release of the eponymous full-length Saint Asonia later that summer. ~ James Christopher Monger
