The Armed have shared the third single from their upcoming album, ULTRAPOP, out April 16 via Sargent House. Today the band releases the video for “An Iteration,” which features a voice-over and cameo from David Hayter, voice of Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid 2, as well as some imagery and references to other videos by The Armed (and one video by Converge).
The Armed’s Dan Greene says in a press release, “The story of Metal Gear Solid 2–which seemed like convoluted, impenetrable nonsense when we were kids–has turned out to be disturbingly prescient of society in 2021. I would argue that this video game raised more interesting artistic and philosophical questions than a lot of “higher art,” and much earlier too. We are beyond honored to see David Hayter take on the role of Dan Greene within The Armed Cinematic Universe.”
