First things first: The Armed is a pretty great name for any band from Detroit. The hardcore band are getting set to release their first full length album since 2009, and like their first, it was recorded and engineered by Kurt Ballou at his GodCity studios. Drummer Nick Yacyschyn (SUMAC, The Baptists) played drums on it, and if “Forever Scum” is any indication of the rest of it, it’s going to be as fast and furious as some of Detroit’s best exports. Then there’s the video. It’s simple, awesome, violent and fiery as hell. Your inner Beavis and Butt-head will love it, and so do we.
The Armed’s forthcoming untitled album will be out on June 23rd on vinyl and digital via No Rest Until Ruin Records, and can be pre-ordered here.
