The Armed sign to Sargent House, share new video, announce tour

The Armed

Yesterday, spastic metal/punk collective The Armed released the new single “FT. FRANK TURNER” as part of the Adult Swim Singles series, and today they released a video for the song and revealed that they signed to Sargent House. No word on a followup to last year’s Only Love yet, but stay tuned for info on their Sargent House debut.

The video — directed by frequent collaborator Tony Wolski and co-produced by photographer Joe Gall — is as surreal as you’d expect from this band, complete with ghillie suits, skateboarding, fires, a shock ending, and more. Watch below.

The Armed also announced a short North American tour for September, hitting Philly, NYC, Boston, Toronto, and Montreal.

The NYC show happens on September 13 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Frank Turner commented on The Armed’s new song: “O…K. So the band The Armed (who I quite like) have put out a song using my name. Whatever to that. But it also uses some recorded vocals of mine from a session about 8 years ago (a song I never finished). I can see a connect because I demo’d that song with Kurt Ballou once upon a time. Don’t really care about the obvious provocateur stuff (pretty funny really, including pic of @frankcarter23) but not very stoked about recordings getting used like that. Precisely no one involved getting back to me right now. So… there it is. Well done everyone. Enjoy the song, I guess.”
