Last month, The Armed played a short but incredible live set for the Adult Swim Festival, which was briefly available online during the weekend of the festival and then disappeared from Youtube. Yesterday, Sargent House posted the full live set, comprising tracks from the group’s outstanding new album ULTRAPOP, including “All Futures” and “An Iteration” (two of our favorite songs of the year), and it is now available to view in its entirety. It’s a pretty intense way to start your day—watch it below.
The Armed are playing three ULTRAPOP release shows in January, in Detroit, New York City and Los Angeles; two of the three shows are now sold out.
The Armed’s ULTRAPOP is on our list of the Top 50 Albums of 2021.
