The Stained Glass Saints have a distinct sound comprised of a modern-day acoustic feel that vocally resonates somewhere reminiscent of 1944. The Saints, straight out of Southern California, delve deep below the surface uninventing the rock & roll, while preserving the finest of their punk roots. Their live shows are often highlighted by their acoustic lounge-style version of "Disconnected," a song originally performed by punk rock legends Face to Face. The song appears on their self-released 8-song EP The Stained Glass Saints.
