King of the Sun Album and Tour 2012

The Album
Having spent the last year and a half playing truant - as the rhythm section in a French band - Bailey and drummer, Peter Wilkinson, dust off their halos and re-focus on The Saints.
'King of the Sun' was recorded at the world-famous Trackdown Studio, engineered by Sean Carey and produced by Fortunato Luchresi.

Chris Bailey
"The Saints have always been my main passion, despite my promiscuity and desire for musical experiment I feel that The Saints are an unfinished musical journey. This album is one step closer on this road."

The tracks are subtle metaphors, disguised in nostalgia or cherishment of a time gone by; they capture the difficulties and the despair of our times.

The Saints continue to entertain crowds far and wide, throughout Europe and the USA; they've recorded and performed in the UK, the USA, France, Sweden, the Netherlands and a myriad other locations. Recently, Bailey performed at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art as part of a special recording for Judy Collins' PBS TV Special.

Over the years the band have released 15 studio albums, 17 singles, 6 EPs, 2 live albums and 10 compilation albums, not to mention Bailey's solo output and collaborations with other artists.
And they have done a shitload more but this is just PR, listen to the musicÂ….
