Just yesterday, fans of Armored Saint learned vocalist John Bush would not be on stage at a couple of the band’s upcoming shows on its U.S. tour due to an undisclosed “illness” that’s affecting his “nasal and chest area.” Fingers crossed that it’s not COVID, but it *is *flu and cold season, so here’s hoping it’s that.

In a statement personally posted by the ex-Anthrax singer via Armored Saint’s Facebook page, Bush said Dangerous Toys/Broken Teeth vocalist Jason McMaster will be behind the microphone in his absence. Bush said he hopes to be back on stage as soon as he can.

“I’m out here on the road and I plan on being near the stage in giving my band members my support.

We’re pulling for a speed recovery for John Bush. If you want to catch Armored Saint on the road with W.A.S.P., be sure to check the following dates below and get your tickets today.
