Detroit punk/hardcore/experimental collective The Armed have announced they've signed with Los Angeles label / management company Sargent House, home to artists like Chelsea Wolfe, Russian Circles, Brutus, EARTH, Emma Ruth Rundle, Mutoid Man among others. The signing comes off the success of their break through ONLY LOVE LP that received album of the year nods in its respective genre and beyond from the likes of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Noisey, The Atlantic, Stereogum and many more.
With the announcement comes a new video for "FT. FRANK TURNER", a song released yesterday via the Adult Swim Singles Club. Directed by frequent collaborator Tony Wolski (Converge, Protomartyr, etc.) and co-produced by lauded photographer Joe Gall, the video features 3 ghillie suited skaters skating the cinematic universe so thoughtfully created through other recent The Armed videos.
