The Armed To Release New Album “Ultrapop” In April, Premiere “All Futures” Video

The Armed have announced that their new album “Ultrapop” will be released on April 16. With this news, the band have also premiered a new video for their new song “All Futures.” You can check that out below:

Dan Greene said the following about the new record:

“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.”

Notably, the effort will feature a number of guests including: Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, etc.), Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens Of The Stone Age, etc.), Kurt Ballou (Converge), Eva Spence (Rolo Tomassi), and Ben Chisholm (Chelsea Wolfe). The cover art and track listing can be found below:
