We have waited six, long, hard years for a new full length album from The Armed. They are, in our humble opinion, one of the best damn messed-up math/punk/stupid genre-tag-du-jour-core bands in the world today. Sure, they’ve released a nearly-yearly update with their EPs, but as much as we love Common Enemies, Young & Beautiful, Spreading Joy, and their split with Tharsis They, we were always left desperate for more. For over half a damn decade, we’ve been desperate for more.
This week the band announced that long wait was finally over by confirming that the follow-up to 2009’s These Are Lights is coming out on 23 June 2015.
If you still need convincing, check out the video to ‘Forever Scum‘, which in just over two minutes should demonstrate just how pathetic and weak all those shitty albums that crappy mainstream publications are telling you that you ought to be excited about really are:
