SAINT VITUS are touring in support of their recently released ‘Live Vol. 2’ album. ‘Live Vol. 2’ captures a dominating, Wino-fronted 2013 Euro festival headline set from the ‘Lillie: F-65’ line-up (Dave Chandler: guitar, Scott “Wino” Weinrich: vocals, Mark Adams: bass, Henry Vasquez: drums) and tour. ‘Live Vol. 2’ , is streaming now at the official SAINT VITUS Bandcamp page.

This deluxe version is available as a double CD and triple-LP with the rare live album “Marbles in the Mosphit” as the second CD and third LP respectively. “Marbles in the Moshpit” features a killer performance recorded live on December 20, 1984 in Ontario while the band was supporting BLACK FLAG.

…the boys are on fire here, flush with renewed energy and basking in the glow of their new-found power.” – Pitchfork

This sick behemoth of a sound – and patented strangled-cat guitar solos – could only come from one band, and that’s a window into why Lillie: F-65 succeeds as a whole: the Saint Vitus Character remains intact, never fucked-up with modern contrivances. Doubtful that Sabbath’s own 2012 comeback will be even a faction this good.” – Decibel

…it’s clear that their chops have only increased in the intervening years, and they certainly haven’t lost their ability to bring dynamics to a slothful sub-genre.” – Outburn

…Vitus shows the enduring significance of their approach, and that what proved true about them in their initial run is no less true now: By not being of their era, they were and remain timeless. …Saint Vitus are more relevant now than they’ve ever been, and Lillie: F-65 shows a good deal of why. No doubt one of 2012’s landmark albums. Highly recommended.” – The Obeslisk
