"[We] offer a little AC/DC, some soaring nu-metal guitar work, and the advanced musicianship and complex arrangements of emo/pop-punk," says Arm the Angels, who cut their rock 'n' roll teeth opening for acts like Against Me! and any number of Fat Wreck Chords bands.
Drummer Adam Rapps - formerly of pun band Pivit - is a big surf fan and lover of Taylor Steele surf movies. His music has accompanied videos showcasing surf stars Kelly Slater and Rob Machado.
Before recording their debut CD, Novus Ordo Seclorum, they played at local nightclubs such as 'Canes, Brick by Brick, and House of Blues. Radio stations 94.9, 91X and Rock 105.3 have regularly programming their music.
