THE ARMED Announce New Album ULTRAPOP, Share First Single “All Futures”

Metal Injection

Mysterious band The Armed have announced that their new album, ULTRAPOP, will be released April 16 via Sargent House. The Armed is a genre-encapsulating experience, melding the boundaries of hardcore, math rock, punk, and elements of pop for a new genre they call Ultrapop.

The album features Mark Lanegan and Queens of the Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen. The band’s Dan Greene explains the album’s concept in a statement:

“Crafting vital art means presenting the audience with new and intriguing tensions—sonically, visually, conceptually. Over time and through use, those tensions become less novel and effective—and they become expectations. The concept of “subgenre” becomes almost the antithesis of vitality in art—itself a fetishization of expectation. ULTRAPOP seeks, in earnest, to create a truly new listener experience. It is an open rebellion against the culture of expectation in “heavy” music. It is a joyous, genderless, post-nihilist, anti-punk, razor-focused take on creating the most intense listener experience possible. It’s the harshest, most beautiful, most hideous thing we could make.”

The Armed will be on tour (hopefully) later this year:
