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:

The Armed Premiere “Ft. Frank Turner” Music Video

The Armed have premiered a new video for their new song “Ft. Frank Turner.” As previously reported, the track was released yesterday as part of the Adult Swim Singles series and the band seemed to use it to troll Frank Turner and Frank Carter.

The Armed Seem To Be Trolling Frank Turner & Frank Carter With Their New Song “Ft. Frank Turner”

The Armed have released a new song titled “Ft. Frank Turner” as part of the Adult Swim Singles series. However, the track has been met with controversy from Frank Turner, who told Stereogum that the band took some vocals from one of his unreleased demos: “I was not at any point aware this was happening, don’t know the band personally (though I am a casual fan), and didn’t clear this.” The band seemed to address those claims saying: “CHECK OUT OUR NEW-ASS, 80-SECOND LONG-ASS, RIDDLED WITH UNCLEARED SAMPLES-ASS SONG ‘FT. FRANK TURNER’…” They also posted another statement saying: “It saddens us to hear that he’s upset about the song. We’ve been big fans of Gallows for a long time.” Obviously, Turner wasn’t a member of Gallows, but Frank Carter was and his picture is oddly being used as the single’s artwork. An official video for the track is expected to be released tomorrow (June 6).
