The long-awaited live The Armed record is here!
Recorded in a variety of atypical settings by Chris Koltay and mixed by Kurt Ballou—this thing makes our normal records sound like easy listening. Full of broken strings, dropped sticks, and concussions, this album is raw as hell and likely thoroughly off-putting to anyone not already familiar with the material.
So what better way to release it than an EXTREMELY limited VHS tape?! Limited to 100…this thing is gonna peace out quick.
Don’t own a VCR?! No problem! We got a bunch of shitty ones off craigslist! This baby will come emblazoned with a spray-painted The Armed symbol on top so all of your friends will know where your allegiances lie when they come over to watch tapes! It won’t come with a remote so as to promote healthy and regular exercise and as a statement against sedentary lifestyles. Also - it may not work by the time it reaches you! We’ve never shipped a VCR before and have no idea what to expect. So…good luck?
Comes with the Unanticipated Tee which features the album artwork (photograph by Trevor Dernai) on a slick “vintage black” ring-spun tee.
We also may throw in some treats to enjoy while watching our tape on your new VCR! (But maybe not!)
$60 shipped anywhere US ONLY (I can’t even imagine the emails about the cost of shipping a VCR overseas…)
