They followed this up with an EP, 'Common Enemies' in 2010, which featured drummer Chris Pennie formerly of The Dillinger Escape Plan and, at the time, in Coheed and Cambria playing drums on one track, as well as saxophonist Mike Jones.
In September 2011, The Armed released their next EP, 'Young & Beautiful', and then came 'Spreading Joy' in 2012. Their second full length didn't come until 2015, in the form of and untitled record, before 'Only Love', their latest, in April 2018.
