THE ARMED ANNOUNCE DEBUT FEATURE FILM

ULTRAPOP: LIVE AT THE MASONIC TEMPLE

HOUR-LONG NARRATIVE-DRIVEN CONCERT FILM EXPLORES THE HISTORIC ROOMS AND HALLS OF THE MASONIC TEMPLE OF DETROIT VIA THEIR BREAK OUT RECORD ULTRAPOP

DIGITAL SCREENINGS START 15TH OCTOBER; GRAB TICKETS HERE

The Armed have announced their debut feature film ULTRAPOP: Live At The Masonic Temple, an incredible narrative-driven concert film directed by Tony Wolskipresented by Sargent House. Digital screenings will start 15th October, with a special in-person screening event happening the same day at Detroit’s El Club. Check here for full screening schedule. Part “Lemonade,” part “Live at Pompeii” and fully infused with a sense of Lynchian dread – the project is a stunningly-filmed cinematic document of live performances taking place within the opulent chapels, imposing asylum rooms, full-size indoor handball courts, halls (and more) of the mysterious Masonic Temple of Detroit; a 550,000 square foot fortress in the heart of the city. 

Live performance and story-driven narrative melt seamlessly into one another, as the film confronts themes of identity, information warfare, the commoditisation of artistic product, and commodification of the artist. The film also definitively shines a light on The Armed’s often-mysterious, collaborative structure—revealing an ever-changing lineup over the course of its runtime as they perform tracks off The Armed’s break-out album ULTRAPOP, selections from their second LP, Only Love and CYBERPUNK 2077 single “Night City Aliens”.  The movie culminates in the ultimate catharsis with the entire collective converging for the devastating closer ”On Jupiter.

ULTRAPOP, released in April of this year, received acclaim across the board. Reaching the same extremities of sonic expression as the furthest depths of metal, noise, and otherwise “heavy” counterculture music sub-genres, it finds its foundation firmly in pop music and pop culture. A joyous, genderless, post-nihilist, anti-punk, razor-focused take on creating the most intense listening experience possible, and now with ULTRAPOP: Live At The Masonic Temple, the most intense viewing experience possible.
