Secret Arms is three piece band from Miami, Florida who formed in 2011. Secret Arms play an absolutely incredible style of post hardcore influenced screamo that calls to mind a lot of killer bands from the late 90's and early 2000's. Secret Arms influences are varied and include bands such as Stop It!, Life At These Speeds, The Fiction, and Sinaloa. New Colonies is the band's debut ten song LP, which was released on October 5, 2012. New Colonies was recorded by Ryan Haft of Capsule fame with help from Jonathan Nunez (Torche, Shitstorm). These ten songs are amazing and provide a much needed change of pace as far as current screamo style music is concerned. Overall, Secret Arms have created one amazing LP here. Secret Arms is a must listen for fans of Sinaloa, Hot Cross, and Stop It! Seriously, this is probably one of the best band requests I've gotten all month!
