The Green Door Store, Brighton
Detroit punk outfit The Armed are heading to The Green Door Store this October.
The Armed have announced a new album, ULTRAPOP, available April 16th via Sargent House - their first album with the company. Featuring work from Mark Lanegan and Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen this is the first album co-produced by the band's own Dan Greene in collaboration with Ben Chisholm (Chelsea Wolfe). Kurt Ballou remains at the helm as executive producer. With the announcement comes a live video for the first track, "All Futures," explicitly revealing this album's band member lineup for the first time. The video is a live take of the studio track, which can be heard here.
Ultrapop is the genre of music that said album features. It reaches the same extremities of sonic expression as the furthest depths of metal, noise, and otherwise "heavy" counter culture music subgenres but finds its foundation firmly in pop music and pop culture. As is always The Armed's mission, it seeks only to create the most intense experience possible, a magnification of all culture, beauty, and things.
