Dialing in the dirt

Black Heart Saints have been tearing up stages and speakers with their energetic hard-driving brand of golden age-influenced rock since 2014 out of their home base of Austin, Texas. They have quickly climbed the ranks in the live arena, opening for acts like Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, Sevendust, Buckcherry, and Stryper and impressing audiences with their fire, chops, and charisma. The band consists of Josh Ross on vocals, Mark Sean on guitar, Nathan Flores on Drums, and Ian C.G. on bass and they are currently touring in support of their latest EP, entitled ‘Misery’.
