Not only have The Armed announced that their album is named ULTRAPOP, but they have also just dropped brand-new single “ALL FUTURES”. Featuring contributions from Mark Lanegan and Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen; ULTRAPOP is expected to be a radical reshaping of their sound to defy expectations and map out their own unique sonic territory.

"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." – Dan Greene



Nothing compares to the sheer passion and fury of The Armed’s live performance. They have announced a tour in support of upcoming album Ultrapop which will be one of the most intense records of the year, and sure to thrill their hardcore fans. Make sure you grab your ticket before they all sell out!
