In 2020, the Chiago-based hardcore band La Armada will release a series of digital singles under the theme of Songs for the Exiled, with each new track focusing on places its members have lived. The group was formed in the Dominican Republic in 2001, and has been based in Chicago since 2009.

The band also shared news of its first lineup chance in 19 years:

We would like to announce that our brother Javier Fernandez, aka Bruka, our lifelong lead singer and comrade, will no longer be an active member of La Armada. Bruka’s fierce voice and militant activism have been a major force within this band. He’s made the tough decision to pursue other challenges that make it impossible to commit to the band’s heavy touring/recording schedule. We have had a long and meaningful journey together, his legacy in the band is unquestionable.

That being said, we are happy to officially introduce our new lead singer Casper Torres, all the way from Puerto Rico. Casper is an old friend and an experienced hardcore-punk veteran (KDC, Rhinoceros) with explosive on-stage presence some serious studio chops. Some of you met him while on tour with us last year. For those in Europe, you already saw the energy he brings to the stage. We are excited to have him on board and together we’re creating songs that continue to push heavy music forward with the same intensity and social justice tradition. We can’t wait to share it with you.

La Armada has released three studio albums, two splits, and three EPs so far.
