We like The Armed. We like them a lot. We like how they give away free, lossless digital versions of all their music just because they want to. We love that they do this so their music can be unrestrained by anything even slightly approaching commercial concerns. We love that they sound like the angriest bits of The Dillinger Escape Plan roaring bitter fury at a tornado. We like The Armed so much that we bought extra copies of the sexy 7-inch vinyl version of their latest EP, Spreading Joy, for the express purpose of giving them away to YOU.
We don’t have just one copy of Spreading Joy to give away though. Oh no. We’ve got two. The statisticians among you will know this already, but that means that you’ve got twice as many chances to win than if we just had one copy to give away. This EP only came out in December and our Deputy Editor still liked it enough in the brief space of time between then and compiling his Records of 2012 that he put it as his no.2 choice of the year. Yes, it’s that good.
Look at it. Go and download it. Then come back here and try to win a copy on vinyl.
To be in with a chance of winning, just answer the following question:
The Armed are from Detroit. They have a song on their latest EP called 'Cop Friends'. What famous fictional cop is based in Detroit?
This competition is dead. Go click Competitions and find another one and win some other shit.
Usual competition rules apply – one entry per person, our decision is final, and so on and so forth. You’ve got until whatever time on Wednesday 20 February 2013 to enter as that’s when we’ll allegedly be closing the competition and picking our winners.
You can, of course, head on over to The Armed’s webstore, and buy yourself a copy of Spreading Joy on vinyl for the very reasonable price of $7 plus shipping. Hell, you can go directly to The Armed’s website and download a copy of the EP in a lossless format of your choice for absolutely nothing at all.

We heard a rumour that The Armed might be releasing a SUPER TOP SECRET SPLIT with SOMEONE SUPER TOP SECRET at some point in 2013. WE ARE EXCITED.
