The Armed have shared details of a new album, titled Perfect Saviors.

Spanning 12 tracks, the album features contributions from a wide cast of guest musicians and follows on from 2021's ULTRAPOP, which was named among tQ's favourite albums of that year. To mark Perfect Saviors' announcement, The Armed have shared a video for lead single 'Sport Of Form'. You can watch the visual, which stars Iggy Pop playing the role of God, above.

In a press statement about Perfect Saviors, The Armed said: "Too much information has made us dumb and confused. Too many ways to connect have inadvertently led to isolation. And too much expectation has forced everyone to become a celebrity. Predictable primal dangers have given way to newer social ones. And the result is a world that is confounding and terrifying – but ultimately still beautiful. We hope this record is exactly all of that, too. Perfect Saviors is our completely unironic, sincere effort to create the biggest, greatest rock album of the 21st century."

Sargent House will release Perfect Saviors on August 25, 2023.
