“I’m super excited to share ‘The Hunted’ video with our fans,” says singer Adam Gontier. “We worked with PR Brown, who did our ‘Better Place’ video from the first record, again. He’s also done all of Saint Asonia’s record artwork and is absolutely brilliant. He’s an amazing photographer and his vision always seems to line up perfectly with ours. ‘The Hunted’ video sort of has a Little Red Riding Hood vibe to it. But it’s a little more ‘creepy,’ if you will. It’s kind of a straightforward song, and I really wanted the video to be simple and visually intriguing. I think we’ve achieved that.”
The band will release their Spinefarm Records debut Flawed Design on October 25. To herald the release, the band has also dropped the new track “Beast.” Exclusive pre-order bundles are available here.
“The thing about Flawed Design is that it took longer than we expected to make,” Gontier explains. “But in the end, because of that, it turned out to be a really good piece of work. There were so many things happening in my personal life when we started the process in early 2017. I basically took a step back, took care of the things I needed to, and I went through a lot of extremely difficult situations. I found myself in a bad place. But, when I finally came out on the other side, I focused, we focused, and we made Flawed Design. It’s a very real, vulnerable look into the last few years of my life — the good, the bad, and the ugly.”
He finishes, “I feel confident in saying Flawed Design is, without a doubt, the best body of work/music I’ve ever created. I hope it has the same impact on fans, as it has on me.”
Saint Asonia have confirmed two live appearances, with more to be announced soon.

ABOUT SAINT ASONIA:
Saint Asonia – named Loudwire’s Best New Artist of 2015 –sparked into life four years ago when former Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier and Staind guitarist/founding member Mike Mushok decided to turn their joint ambition to make music that is “raw, real, and straight from our hearts” into a new band and a fully-fledged studio outing.
The result was their acclaimed self-titled debut, released in 2015, which charted Top 10 in Canada and entered the Billboard U.S. Rock Albums chart at #2. The album was driven by the Top 10 radio tracks “Better Place” and “Let Me Live My Life,” as well as the high-concept video to the featured track “Fairy Tale.”
Collectively responsible for 28 Top 10 U.S. Rock Radio hits, including 17 #1s — the demand was immediately there for Saint Asonia to take to the road. Following an inaugural main stage appearance at Rock on the Range in 2015, the band set off on U.S. amphitheater tours with Breaking Benjamin and Disturbed and will follow the release of Flawed Design with an extensive tour schedule which will be announced shortly.
