The Armed have announced that their new album, ULTRAPOP, will arrive April 16 via Sargent House. The band has also shared a video for their new song “All Futures,” recorded live in the studio. Watch it below. The album features Mark Lanegan and Queens of the Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen. 

The band’s Dan Greene discussed the album’s concept in a statement:

Crafting vital art means presenting the audience with new and intriguing tensions—sonically, visually, conceptually. Over time and through use, those tensions become less novel and effective—and they become expectations. The concept of “subgenre” becomes almost the antithesis of vitality in art—itself a fetishization of expectation. ULTRAPOP seeks, in earnest, to create a truly new listener experience. It is an open rebellion against the culture of expectation in “heavy” music. It is a joyous, genderless, post-nihilist, anti-punk, razor-focused take on creating the most intense listener experience possible. It’s the harshest, most beautiful, most hideous thing we could make.
