Arcane Saints is an Australian hard rock band founded by front man Michael John who is a relative of Steve Harris (Iron Maiden.)
After growing up in the UK and New Zealand he moved to Australia and recruited Michael “Sheep” Gooding on lead guitar. Gary Drain joined on drums and Drew Dedman, who was previously in legendary nu metal act Superheist, completed the line up on bass.
In an age of “fast track to fame” reality TV shows, Arcane Saints believe in achieving success the old fashioned way… writing excellent music and touring relentlessly.
Although still relatively early in their career, the band have toured and performed at major festivals in the USA, Canada, China, New Zealand as well as their homeland of Australia.
A single released online garnered the attention of Grammy award winning producer Toby Wright (Metallica, Alice in Chains, Kiss, Korn) who liked their sound so much, he invited them to his home town of Nashville to record their debut album “Turning the Tide.”
