The tour is in support of The Armed’s fifth LP ‘Perfect Saviors‘. In a four-star review of the album, NME shared: “While their sound has become more accessible, it’s also as forward-thinking as we’ve come to expect of The Armed. They warp their influences and push them to the brink; beneath incredibly catchy hooks are complex layers of sound, giving each song unique scope and intensity. If their previous albums sounded like hardcore on steroids and deranged, this is the same for their brand of rock-and-roll.”

Elsewhere, last year, Wolski, the band’s frontman, reflected on the group’s decision to remain anonymous for so long.


The Detroit collective’s secrecy surrounding their identities has been a significant part of their artistry, to the extent that they had even sent actors to masquerade as them in interviews.

When asked why they have slowly revealed their real identities to the world for the first time, Wolski told NME that the group “never really anticipated” a time where their anonymity would be such a focus. He himself had used the alias Adam Vallely, after one of their fans.
