Armored Saint, leaders and stalwarts of the American heavy metal scene since the early 1980s, are back with a brilliant rendition of “One Chain (Don’t Make No Prison)”. The classic track was originally written by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter and was first released by People in 1970. Additional covers include “The Four Tops” (1974), “Sanatana” (1978) and “The Doobie Brothers” (1989).

Comments vocalist John Bush, “(Bassist]) Joey (Vera]) came up with the idea of doing the song. We’ve always been huge fans of old school soul and R&B music so it was a no brainer. It’s got a great groove, perfect for our rhythm section, and Jeff (Duncan)’s and Phil (Sandoval)’s guitars are screaming. Plus, the cool lyrics make it ideal for the ‘Saint style. Levi Stubbs
(The Four Tops) was such a rad singer; I just tried to do him justice. I think this would make him a metal fan!”
