The Armed have announced a new album. The band’s follow-up to 2021’s ULTRAPOP is titled Perfect Saviors, and it’s out August 25 via Sargent House. The album features contributions from Julien Baker, Sarah Tudzin, Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Bonnie “Prince” Billy), Mark Guiliana, Patrick Shiroishi, Justin Meldal Johnsen, Josh Klinghoffer, Eric Avery and Stephen Perkins of Jane’s Addiction, and more. It was produced by the group’s Tony Wolski along with Ben Chisholm and Troy Van Leeuwen, and mixed by Alan Moulder. The first single is “Sport of Form,” and you can check out its new video, featuring guest vocals from Julien Baker and starring Iggy Pop, below. The band have also announced headlining tour dates this fall. Check those out below as well.

Vocalist Tony Wolski said about the album in a statement, “Too much information has made us dumb and confused. Too many ways to connect have inadvertently led to isolation. And too much expectation has forced everyone to become a celebrity. Predictable primal dangers have given way to newer social ones. And the result is a world that is confounding and terrifying—but ultimately still beautiful. We hope this record is exactly all of that, too.

Perfect Saviors is our completely unironic, sincere effort to create the biggest, greatest rock album of the 21st century.”
