Expensive.  

 

The Armed make their feature film debut with ULTRAPOP: Live At The Masonic Temple, an incredible narrative-driven concert film directed by Tony Wolski, presented by Sargent House. 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 commoditization 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.”

It's pricy but the package sounds amazing:

180g, black + white vinyl in a gorgeous double-gatefold jacket with gloss varnish logo stamping and a 26 page, full-color booklet of stunning photography from the film.

Each ultraluxe copy comes with an exclusive fold out movie poster that is hand-numbered and signed by Dan Greene, himself.


Elsewhere it was confirmed that the score is by Ben Chisholm of Chelsea Wolfe.  So we're getting the live tracks and Ben Chisholm score on this.


I grabbed the vinyl and a ticket to the digital premier
