Founded as recently as March, 2016, Armada are an Orlando, FL-based metal quintet which – consisting of Jerimiah James (vox), Tee Jay (guitar), Ryan Danley (guitar), Mike Ferrell (bass) and Josh Lough (drums) – is composed of seasoned musicians all of whom have cut their teeth on many other bands. A veritable super group of artists, their music is, to use their words, “tough, heavy, loud, aggressive, raw” and can’t be evidenced more than with the premiere of their new 6-track EP, Of An Ocean.
Armada vocalist Jerimiah James noted about the band, their music and new EP: “When we put together Armada, it was purely for the love of music and wanting to enjoy being musicians and having fun again without any pressure from industry and music scene expectations. We made this EP and everything you will see us do with our own money, ideas and passion for recording and playing shows. We’ve been in bands for almost 10 years now, and Armada is the first project we have done without any outside influence or expectations or help from anyone. Of An Ocean is the first of many of albums and music we’ll be putting together for years to come, love us or hate us were here to stay.”
