Meet the artist! Who is The Armed?

They will soon be heading over to Europe for the first time and, on 24/02, they will appear in the AB Club. The Armed: complex guitar lines, atypical drum parts and screaming, lots of screaming. The mixed 5 from Detroit bear the name The Armed and set foot in Europe for the first time. They come to present their most recent album 'Only Love'.

In ‘Meet the artist’, we subject our artists to an intense cross-examination before they go on stage.
