If music was simply all about finding that golden ticket to fame and fortune, then Blood Red Saints wouldn't exist at all. Their brand of melodic rock isn't designed for the masses, it comes from the heart, simply put, it's music for people who want to go a little deeper to find what they want.Drawing inspiration from bands like Giant, Hardline and Winger, Blood Red Saints are hoping to bring a little light to a genre that has lived in the shadows for too long.Pete Godfrey (vocals) stormed on to the scene with a truly great debut album in 2014, In Faith's "There's a storm coming" surprised many and was rightly hailed as an album that was up there with the very best. His vocal performance earned him instant respect from the melodic rock community.Rob Naylor (Bass) also released what was described by some as the best AOR album of 2014. A founding member of Angels Or Kings, the album Kings Of Nowhere topped many peoples list of album of the year.So, what's up?Pete Godfrey explains." 2014 was a great year for me, i achieved a personal dream of releasing an album and I couldn't have been more pleased with how it has been received, however,as a songwriter, I am forever pushing myself to go that one step further, I met Rob at Firefest and we just hit it off, we loved the same bands, had the same sense of humour, I asked him outright, if he would be interested in writing with me, my main thought being, maybe we could offer them to other artists. we wrote four songs together that first week and they just kept on coming"Rob continues, "its safe to say that neither Pete nor myself viewed these songwriting collaborations as anything but that, but, something changed,I remember thinking to myself I don't want to give these songs away, they're too good...I finally said "are you thinking what I'm thinking? "luckily he was".They were ten songs in when they approached Lee Revill.Lee is well known and respected locally, he had played on Gary Hughes second solo album. Pete says, "we knew we needed someone a bit special and Lee's name kept popping up, we met up and played him what we had, thankfully he loved it". "I think Lee will get a lot of attention when people hear his playing on this album"says Rob, "he is simply awesome and its great that people will get to hear his playing again".The final piece of the jigsaw was to find a drummer who would compliment the line up. Pete Godfrey takes up the story " After working with Pete Newdeck on the In Faith album I knew that we needed Pete to bring that extra special something, he was already on board mixing the album, so it was natural to ask him to be a part of Blood Red Saints" Rob continues "yeah, Newdeck was a shoe in. You don't get to be in shit loads of bands if you can't cut it"A deal with Frontiers was signed in early June with the hope of an Autumn release. Pete Godfrey has this to say " For anyone who liked In Faith and Angels Or Kings, then you will simply love Blood Red Saints. I'm so proud of this album and we hope you will love it as much as we do"We are not a "project". We are a real band and we fully intend on bringing it out there live. We hope to see you soon. Pete, Rob, Lee, Pete. Blood Red Saints.
