Abandoned Pools’ new album “Armed To The Teeth” was produced by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Interpol, Clinic, Erasure and Einstürzende Neubauten) and mixed by Ken Andrews (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Failure, Year of the Rabbit). “Armed to the Teeth,” once again showcasing frontman Tommy Walter’s ability to combine the macro and the micro, contrasting his despair with the world situation and his own personal heartbreak. Featuring holdover drummer Bryan Head and guitarist Sean Woolstenhulme, the band’s songs include “Armed to the Teeth,” about “the way people wield their power by how they consume and spend their money,” whose slashing guitars and dance rhythms evoke the likes of U2 and Joy Division. “Sooner or Later” suggests a world on the edge of destruction, its layers of sound easing toward apocalypse with lyrics like “I’ve got my finger/On trigger.” Walter takes a crunching, grunge-rock approach to his cover of Bjork’s “Army of Me,” while “The Catalyst” (“I wish I could say something beautiful/To make you fall in love again”) and the Coldplay jangle of “Waiting to Panic” (“I’m thinking/My head is exploding”) both deal with the regret in the aftermath of a relationship gone awry.
