[Audio Interview] Ignite Music Magazine Interviews Saint Asonia’s guitarist Mike Mushok

Jacksonville Fl. –Saint Asonia, featuring two of the biggest forces in rock radio over the past decade, Adam Gontier (formerly of Three Days Grace) and Mike Mushok (of Staind), along with band mates Corey Lowery (Stuck Mojo) and Rich Beddoe  (Finger Eleven), has released their self-titled debut album  July 31, 2015 on RCA Records.

They guys has been getting a lot of buzz these past months, with their first ever show at Rock on the Range back in May, to their mini acoustic set at Sirius Radio, the band has been getting rave reviews on their self titled album ” Saint Asonia”.

Ignite interviewer Scottie Brown had the privelage to chat with Mike Mushok about the new album and what is to come in the future with Saint Asonia.

“It was great to hear the return of front man Adam Gontier’s golden voice combined with the killer riffs of Mike Mushok! I can see the fans instantly react to “Better Place.” We’re all stoked for the full album release on 7/31,” remarked Vincent Usuriello, PD of Sirius/XM Octane.   And Artist Direct has declared, “Better Place does all the talking for Saint Asonia. It sounds massive and points to big things from the quartet this year as they finish up their full-length debut. Audiences should get ready to pay homage to this Saint because they deserve it. Rock n’ roll yearned for this, and Saint Asonia are delivering hundredfold.” 

Produced by Johnny K. (Sevendust, Disturbed, Megadeth), the majority of the album was co-written by Gontier & Mushok. Talking about the album, Mike Mushok explains, “I’m really proud that we created such a cohesive body of work. I hope when people hear it they want to see a show! That’s why you do it.”  Adds Adam Gontier, “The experience of making this music was a chance for me to freely express myself without any filters for the first time…It’s different from anything either of us have done in the past. It’s something that I think rock music needs right now. It’s raw, real, and straight from our hearts.”
