The Naked Saints were formed in 2009 and hail from Seattle, Washington.
The band's singer, Tom Sin, was also the frontman for the punk band Moral Suckling on the Profane Existence label.

Eventually the travel and necessary bouts of work led back to music.
Bandmates are Zed, who plays bass and is an ardent devotee of early ska and punk, Erico T. is on guitar and mandolin and likes traditional Irish jigs as well as those of a more chaotic vein, and Damian Voltaire plays Drums. Several guest Saints appear on most recordings as well.
