Former guitarist/songwriter Tommi Helkalahti decided to leave the band - leaving vocalist Jouni Matilainen as the only current former member in the band. In 2015 the new lineup is in order faster than expected. Self-released single/EP "Total Lack of Communication" was released on August 2015 and the band toured even in China to support the release. With fresh blood in veins the band will tour and release their third album 'The Era of Precarity'. "The third album reflects the new era of Re-Armed. The Era of Precarity is fully conceptual album where each track dives into dystopian-world that you would never want to live in.
The theme is flirting with future scenarios and today’s world politics. While retaining our known musical influences and style, we wanted to bring more to the table than just the sounds of our previous records. The songs contain aggressive sound of Death/Thrash metal and groovy Death Metal while adding new influences; crushing Stoner Rock, fast and brutal Black Metal and even classic Heavy Metal! Even the production is now on the next level. With our highly skilled sound engineer and experienced band crew we were able to capture the best tones the band has ever offered." ‘The Era of Precarity’ is out in Finland on September 16 and rest of the world follows on September 30, 2016 via Saarni Records.
