La Armada 2020
To our friends and family,
We would like to announce that our brother Javier Fernandez aka Bruka, our lifelong lead singer and comrade, will no longer be an active member of La Armada. Many of you have asked about him in the last few months. We truly apologize for the hesitation but, If you’ve ever been around us, you know how tight we are and we needed time to reflect.
Bruka’s fierce voice and militant activism have been a major force within this band. He’s made the tough decision to pursue other challenges that make it impossible to commit to the band’s heavy touring/recording schedule. We have had a long and meaningful journey together, his legacy in the band is unquestionable.
That being said, we are happy to officially introduce our new lead singer Casper Torres, all the way from Puerto Rico. Casper is an old friend and an experienced hardcore-punk veteran (KDC, Rhinoceros) with explosive on-stage presence some serious studio chops. Some of you met him while on tour with us last year. For those in Europe, you already saw the energy he brings to the stage. We are excited to have him on board and together we’re creating songs that continue to push heavy music forward with the same intensity and social justice tradition. We can’t wait to share it with you.
“La esencia sigue intacta”
