The Armed 2015

The Armed Share Edgy “Polarizer” Video

In anticipation of their forthcoming album, Untitled, The Armed have graced fans with a searing new single titled “Polarizer.”

Whereas the previously released “Forever Scum” was raw and ruthless, the Detroit quartet’s latest offering is considerably more calculated, built upon blistering drum rolls and disorienting guitar work. Check out the track’s not-so-subtle music video below, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Untitled drops on June 23 via No Rest Until Ruin. Pre-order it here.

VINYL REVIEW: Blink-182 – Blink-182 (Hot Topic Exclusive)

Artist: Blink-182
Album: Blink-182
Label: Geffen Records
Original release date: November 18, 2003

I think it’s safe to say that Blink-182 was my first favorite band. Not only their music, but their personality as a group spoke to me as a pre-teen and teenager with an unequivocal desire to be more outspoken and extroverted. My very first (and second) concerts saw Blink headlining and co-headlining and both of those experiences had a lasting effect on the future me. Looking back on it all now, I can’t help but feel that if it weren’t for Blink-182, I likely never would have …

Blink-182 Announced ‘Untitled’ 10-Year Anniversary Shows

After a weekend spent putting fans on the edge of their seat, Blink-182 have confirmed the anniversary performances most believed were already on the way.

Blink-182 are scheduled to appear on KROQ in Los Angeles at 730AM PST this morning, which is the time most believed the big ’10-year’ news would be revealed. To our surprise, however, KROQ jumped the gun on the announcement and revealed plans for two Los Angeles based Untitled shows for early November. That’s right, just two shows, and they’re both on the West Coast. Everyone else would be wise to head to Priceline now. The …


Blink-182 Hint At Possible ‘Untitled’ Ten Year Tour

In a recent sit down with AbsolutePunk.Net, punk rocker Mark Hoppus mentioned that Blink-182 is not opposed to playing ten year or anniversary shows. With Untitled nearing its tenth anniversary next month, the outfit has posted a photo to their Instagram page that has left many fans theorizing that the album will almost certainly see a ten year tour. You can catch the photo in question at the bottom of this post, after the jump.

Untitled debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200, just behind Britney Spears’ In the Zone (feel old yet?), selling 313,000 copies in …

REVIEW: Half Hearted Hero – Whatever

Artist: Half Hearted Hero
Album: Whatever
Genre: Pop-Punk
Label: Animal Style Records

Massachusetts-based band Half Hearted Hero has been slowly making a name for themselves in the pop-punk genre over the past year or so. While I definitely recognized their name, I can honestly say I was not very familiar with their work. Lots of bands come out, and Half Hearted Hero is one of the bands that kind of fell through the cracks for me. Not that it’s because they’re not a band of quality, but just simply because I don’t have the time to check out every band …
