Quote from: BeardFaceMan on October 17, 2021, 09:57:02 PMDoesn't get better than the Spreading Joy EP for me, particularly this little belter - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aomnf17g_lgActually gone off them a bit since they started doing albums with longer songs with more synths, I preferred the shorter intense blasts of music on the EPs of their earlier stuff. Great fucking band though, if you can call them that, I think they're more of a collective.
Quote from: Johnny Yesno on October 18, 2021, 08:54:18 AMI really hope they come to the UK some time. This gig recording suggests they sound immense:The Armed - "Luxury Themes" (live): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fuj_NnDmpPo
Quote from: niat on October 18, 2021, 12:27:05 PMThey are playing at ArcTanGent next year, so will hopefully do a few other UK dates in August. Can't wait!
QuoteI watched the Ultrapop: Live show on Saturday night and it was excellent. It was $12 to watch one showing and unfortunately there are no replays unless you got the "Red Carpet" premiere, which was in the middle of the night UK time. Hopefully it will get a DVD/streaming release as it's well worth repeat viewings. I listened to Ultrapop again after watching it and it revealed loads of new sounds you could hear in the live performances that are buried in the overwhelming production wall of noise on the album.

Quote from: niat on October 20, 2021, 02:42:01 PMTickets are still available for Live at the Masonic, here: https://ultrapop.live/ until the 26th of October. You can only watch it "as live", though, and the times are all in EST (the 6PM showing is at 11PM BST, for example).Well worth the $12. That's less than nine quid in real money!No word of a Blu Ray or DVD yet, but I'm guessing they'll wait for these streams to finish before announcing it.
Quote from: Johnny Yesno on October 20, 2021, 07:43:10 PMWhat? Are you deaf, sir? The Armed have more ideas in one album than most bands do in an entire career.Also, how are The Armed in any way lauded as much as Death Grips? I know a lot of music passes me by these days but The Armed have been going for over a decade and I only heard about them this year. On the other hand, I've heard Death Grips mentioned dozens of times from multiple sources over the past few years and heard enough of their music to form an opinion of it.
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on October 20, 2021, 09:09:38 PMYeah that was an odd comment, I've never seen them hyped anywhere, just look how popular this thread is, I'd wager most people have never heard of them.
Quote from: sevendaughters on October 20, 2021, 09:34:11 PMthey're hyped as fuck and huge in the online bromusic world
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on October 20, 2021, 10:43:44 PMI'm on their mailing list so get an email when they release new music, that's hype as fuck.
Quote from: Gradual Decline on October 20, 2021, 10:52:14 PMa bit like Converge there.
QuoteHackney joined Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou's other project, art-house hardcore act the Armed. That band, a supergroup of sorts with a sometimes rotating membership, released its third full-length LP in April, the critically acclaimed ULTRAPOP. The Armed, which currently also includes Troy Van Leeuwen from Queens of the Stone Age and Chris Slorach from Canadian punk rockers METZ, will embark on a tour in 2022.
Quote from: boki on October 21, 2021, 01:21:53 PMBeen playing this semi-regularly since it came out, but because of everything being swathed in noise, it lends itself pretty well to being used as background music when I'm working. One day, I'll finally give it a proper attentive listen, but I do enjoy it and definitely looking forward to seeing them at ATG.
