Divided We Stand
Divided Like a Saint's, back from a harrowing and nomadic tour of the United States, has settled (for now) in Atlanta. When the group returned to town late last month, Maryn and Jonathan Vance began rehearsing and living with drummer Russell Brand and are planning a new album early next year, plus another tour to end the calendar year. DLAS has confirmed 21 of its planned 49 dates in November and December. The band plays Lenny's Thurs., Nov. 3, 10 p.m.
