Saint Asonia Worked With Breaking Benjamin, Starset Members On New LP


Saint Asonia singer Adam Gontier and guitarist Mike Mushok told HardDrive Radio in a new interview that Godsmack frontman Sully Erna is not the only outside musician the band collaborated with on its upcoming sophomore album, Flawed Design.

Gontier explained, "We did go outside and work with a few different people -- Sully and (vocalist) Dustin Bates from Starset. It was really cool. We actually wrote some with (guitarist) Keith Wallen from Breaking Benjamin as well. (It was) primarily Mike and myself, but it's always cool to sit down with guitars and get different ideas from different people too."

Sully Erna collaborated with Saint Asonia on "The Hunted," the first single from Flawed Design. He also appears on the track. Gontier said, "'The Hunted' is a song about struggling to find your place in life. It's a solid representation of the direction Saint Asonia is headed."

Flawed Design is due out this this fall. The new disc follows up the band's self-titled 2015 debut, which featured the Top 10 radio tracks "Better Place" and "Let Me Live My Life."
