La Armada‘s focus is to leave their mark on heavy music. A punk band at heart, they utilize elements of Afro-Caribbean rhythms and metal to create a style as unique as their story. Formed in the Dominican Republic in 2001 from where they dominated the Caribbean scene for years, the band opted to take a leap and relocate to Chicago in 2008, where they still reside. Influenced by bands ranging from Bad Brains to Death, they take elements from their native Island’s music to conjure a unique recipe; explosive live energy and a clear cut narrative that highlights the effects of neo-colonialism on vulnerable communities.

The Chicago by way of the Dominican Republic five piece will release a brand new album, Anti-Colonial Vol. 2, on February 11th 2022, the album can now be pre-ordered via the band’s own label Mal De Ojo Records in the US and Latin America, Thousand Islands Records in Canada and Lockjaw Records in Europe. La Armada have also released Checkmate Humanity, the lead single and video from their forthcoming album, that can be streamed and purchased here.
