Drummer Nick Harris commented:

“We’ve been sitting on these songs for a long time. We’ve only played 7 shows since December 2019. We’ve got a new record, a rad label and PR team behind us. Bands don’t make a career out of playing their music by sitting at home! It’s time to get to work!”

Armed For Apocalypse Premiere New Song “Live Through The Storm”

Armed For Apocalypse have premiered a new song titled “Live Through The Storm.” This track is from the band’s new album “Ritual Violence,” which will be released on October 7. Vocalist Nate Burman commented:

“At the time that I wrote this I was in a pretty dark place in life and found myself being wildly self-destructive. It was right at the peak of the pandemic, so I was also pretty isolated from everyone which really started getting to me. I remember finding myself just trying to drink through the boredom and depression night after night. That’s also partially where the album title comes from. It felt like every night was a ritual of self-destruction. It’s a vicious cycle that’s hard to break.”

Armed For Apocalypse Premiere New Song “Hourglass”

Armed For Apocalypse have premiered a new song titled “Hourglass.” This track is from the band’s new album “Ritual Violence,” which will be released on October 7. Vocalist Nate Burman commented:

“This is a song for the entire band. It’s about touring through the worst. Feeling exhausted from it all, like nobody cares what we’re doing, and still keeping your head high. Most bands would have hung it up going through what we have. We’ve stuck around simply because we love to create and play music together. It gives us a sense of fulfilment in life that nothing else does.”

Armed For Apocalypse To Release New Album “Ritual Violence” In October, Premiere New Song “Full Of Phlegm”

Armed For Apocalypse have announced that their new album, “Ritual Violence,” will be released on October 7. You can check out the effort’s first single, “Full Of Phlegm,” below. The band commented:

“‘Ritual Violence‘ was written in a time where everything seemed to be hopeless. A lot of the songs on the album revolve around an overall theme of being stuck in an inescapable self destructive rabbit hole, and the struggle to break free of those habits.”

Nate Burman commented:

“I think we all fall victim to being stuck at a day job that we hate at a certain point in our lives. I remember pacing around work one day feeling trapped somewhere that I didn’t want to be, making someone else’s dreams come true rather than my own. Sure, it’s scary to be financially unstable in order to pursue what you love to do, but it’s absolutely crippling to think about being stuck at a place you’re miserable at just for a paycheck.”
