Bio:

Saint Blasphemer is an independent band based out of Santa Ana, California. They released their first 5 song EP "Simon Templar" on October 15th, 2016. The music, notable for themes of alienation and watching loved ones suffer from drug abuse, was recorded at Hear No Evil studio in Orange, California. The EP charted on college radio and received many positive reviews among the press. The band supported the EP release with a regional tour including Tempe, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Olympia, and Yorba Linda. Saint Blasphemer's 2nd EP "Theotokos" was released April 1st, 2017, also recorded at Hear No Evil studio in Orange, California. Saint Blasphemer toured the West Coast the 1st week of May 2017 with dates in Santa Ana, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, and Santa Cruz.

The band members are John Castellon on guitar, Steve Ybarra on drums, Thomas Monroe on vocals, and Steve Shell on bass guitar.

The music has been compared to early Jane's Addiction, Tool, Alice In Chains, Peter Gabriel, and Nirvana. Saint Blasphemer has been praised for the power of their live performance and the lyrical writing of Thomas Monroe, head of the Orange County Poetry Club. Saint Blasphemer's philosopy towards songwriting is: “Remember when you were a kid, how a song could make you feel like you weren’t the only one going through something?”

The band is writing their first full length album, and may play some midwest and East Coast dates in the fall of 2017.
