“THE GRANITE SAINTS ARE IN A NUTSHELL,BRUTALLY HONEST. IN A THREE CHORD HOMAGE TO THE BANDS OF THEIR YOUTH, THE GRANITE SAINTS WEAR THEIR HEARTS ON THEIR SLEEVE FOR ALL TO BEAR WITNESS.”
From Honolulu, Hawaii, The Granite Saints are, according to their biog, “a three chord homage to the bands of their youth.” They are snotty-nosed punks with the attitude of them against the world. They talk and walk their way and anyone who doesn’t like it can just get out of their way.
Forged in the fires of 2013, they are made up of Lonesome James on rhythm guitar/lead vocals, Andrew on bass/backup vocals, Shane Taylor on lead/rhythm guitars and Chad Taylor on drums. They released a self titled EP in 2017, with some awesome beefy riffing on tunes like “Juju Mama” and “Run The Night.” However, 2018 saw them really open up the Pandora’s Box of punk rocking music with Red, White & Screwed.
THE GRANITE SAINTS – “The Real Enemy“
Now, they are set to return with a new single, “The Real Enemy.” This is the thrashiest thing I have heard by the band, with the amps up to 11 and the snarling vocals punching through the riffing. The one thing that this band stands for is rebellion and this screams anger at the people in control. There is a feeling of betrayal at the way in which they point the finger at the “goon squad on tv.“
The band are looking to release their next LP soon, called Judgement Day – it will be worth your time to check out the realest of real band of rockers, who want to stick it to the Man.
