The Armed’s new album ULTRAPOP is out on April 16th via Sargent House.
Experimental hardcore punks The Armed continue to build intense hype for their upcoming album ULTRAPOP with the release of a very cool music video for ‘An Iteration’. The video features a voice over and cameo from David Hayter, the voice of Solid Snake in the Metal Gear video game series. The video follows The Armed guitarist Dan Greene as he struggles with the idea that the band may only exist in his head. The video is full of easter eggs focusing on the band’s history and Metal Gear Solid.
Dan Greene states “The story of Metal Gear Solid 2–which seemed like convoluted, impenetrable nonsense when we were kids–has turned out to be disturbingly prescient of society in 2021. I would argue that this video game raised more interesting artistic and philosophical questions than a lot of “higher art,” and much earlier too. We are beyond honored to see David Hayter take on the role of Dan Greene within The Armed Cinematic Universe.”
