Armor For Sleep recently sat down to talk about their past, reunion, and where the scene is now.
From the InterviewThere will always be kids passionate about it, but between 2003 and 2007 or 2008 is when this scene had it’s time that was going to be something that was going to stay or be a fad. Based on certain factors and certain people’s decisions who are in certain taste-maker bands, it just went sour and went the wrong way. I don’t think it’ll really have that same kind of effect on as many people as it did on that time. It was almost the mainstream form of music then, and it changed a lot of people’s lives and then it went sour because it did. I think it’ll be there and...

StatementAs a celebration of our quickly approaching reunion/farewell shows, and as a gift to all of you who will be coming to the final shows (the NY show being less than a week away!), we are posting one final unreleased (demo) track for you called "Always A Wish" which was recorded as one of the first demos for Smile for Them and which ultimately did not make the record. You can download the track from the Mediafire link below, and also listen on soundcloud. FIVE DAYS LEFT! Who will be joining us? Thank you all for making this whole experience truly amazing. We...

Armor For Sleep has announced two more reunion shows - July 20 at The Glasshouse in Pomona, CA and July 22 at House of Blues in Chicago. The first announced show still stands for July 14 at Irving Plaza in New York City.

In this interview, Armor For Sleep's Ben Jorgensen quiets rumors of a new AFS album surrounding the band's reunion shows.
From the InterviewWe’re not going to make another Armor for Sleep album. I can 99.99% say we’re not going to do it. Everybody has their own things going on in their lives, and people’s priorities change, and everyone is really busy with what they’re doing. And another thing is, that [while] we could all do different creative things, I feel like AFS is very attached to a certain time, and to do anything to dishonor that would be unjust in some ways. So, if we do other things – when we do other things – it will be outside AFS.

Armor for Sleep's lead singer recently talked with Gunz about reuniting for Bamboozle.
From the Interview“There was a long time when I would have sworn on anything we would never play again, and then we did… we don’t have any plans to play any other shows. I will say it has been fun to jam out with the guys again, and to get in a room and play Car Underwater. But there’s nothing planned, we’re not going to say, “We’re going on a world tour.” Bamboozle’s going to be it. We’re not going to do anything major. I don’t want to say, “no,” but we don’t have any plans for it. We want this to be our last show.”

Bulletin Hey slugs... so we got some pretty crazy news a couple days ago that we are very excited about and want to let you in on as well as give you the first sneak peek at it. As you may or may not know, we shot a video for "Williamsburg" about a month ago in LA. It was an amazing time and we had so much fun doing the whole thing. It came out better than we could have ever imagined, to say the least. Seriously, this thing rules. We were trying to think of the best place to premiere the video for you guys when MTV came...

Armor For Sleep's new album Smile For Them has been pushed back to October 30th.
Message From The BandHey everybody. It's ben. I'm writing you guys to let you know about a little deviation in our grande plan. Instead of our album being released on October 9th, we are going to have it come out on October 30th. There are a couple reasons for this. The most obvious reason is that we didn't want our album to drop on the same day as Kid Rocks new one... Really though, I wish I could tell you why these things happen. But I am just a mere player in this weird play, although it may seem otherwise sometimes. I guess the people who control the gears of motion thought the machine (monster) would...
