The Armed have released a new song and video “Average Death” from their forthcoming album ULTRAPOP. Featuring Clark Huge, flame flowers and a colourful cast of characters in incredible wardrobe and makeup–it’s a surrealist, pastel-coloured vision of the future of pop that could have only been made by The Armed.
The visual reflects the spirit of the album that that band’s Dan Greene describes as “the harshest, most beautiful, most hideous thing we could make.” He adds, “We hope this video is equal parts mesmerising and uncomfortable.” It features guest performances from Nicole Estill (True Widow) and singer Jess Hall.
Listen to “Average Death” and watch the video below:
ULTRAPOP, available April 16th via Sargent House features work from Mark Lanegan and Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen and is the first album co-produced by the band’s own Dan Greene in collaboration with Ben Chisholm (Chelsea Wolfe). Kurt Ballou remains at the helm as executive producer.
