For some people, a vacation is a time of relaxation, of escaping the real world and the responsibilities that come with it. Some visit with friends and family. Others travel to new and exotic locations around the world.

Keeping secrets in the age of social media is almost unheard of. Which is why it was such a shock in mid-May when a teaser video announced the arrival of Saint Asonia, a new act featuring frontman Adam Gontier (formerly of Three Days Grace), guitarist Mike Mushok (Staind), drummer RIch Beddoe (formerly of Finger Eleven) and bassist Corey Lowery (whose long resume includes Eye Empire, Stuck Mojo and Dark New Day). The band then made its live debut just days later at Rock on the Range, one of America’s premier hard rock festivals (view photos of the performance here), and announced the July 31 release of its self-titled, debut album through RCA. As the release date nears, the band has announced its first tour, set to kick off in August, and Mushok recently called in to chat with Live Metal’s Greg Maki. (more…)
