Armada is a trio from Los Angeles featuring Cody Page - Vocals/Guitar, Jeremy Gruber - Bass/Keyboards and Eddie Core - Drums. They deliver a blend of 90´s rock, blues and classic rock for fans of Queens of the stone age, Rival Sons and Robin Trower. Their debut album "Paper ghosts" is a bit uneven but the good stuff is really good on the other hand, just listen to the cool "Nevada" that sounds like something that could´ve been in a Tarantino movie or the groovy single "Callanwolde" that I dig a lot. The melodic "Badge gun" is my personal fave along with the ZZ Top-like "Up out", this is a promising band no doubt.
Cody is a great guitarplayer for sure.
