Founded somewhere around 2009-2010 after a long night of video gaming.
The band was to be a collection of friends playing type of music influenced by their favorite bands.
Starting out Armadillo played music that was heavily inspired by the early desert rock scene (and in a lot of respect still is). Raunchy guitars mixed together with clever lyrics and an energetic rhythm section. It was and is - all about the attitude.
During the early years Armadillo went through a handful of lineup changes, image changes and music changes. But the band steadily cemented themselves as the cool rock band with heavy guitars and their feet firmly on the ground. It was a growing process.
In 2013 Armadillo went on (what would turn out to be) a very long hiatus.
In the end of 2017 Linus, Christoffer and Dennis started talking about the band again, and felt the Armadillo itch. It was time.
Armadillo’s music today is significantly heavier than the band that started messing around in 2009. But they never lost their melodic edge and their playful attitude towards the music. They like to describe their music as following - It got the dancing groove of Eagles of Death Metal, a little touch of the raw power that is Sleep, the playful details that defines Queens of the Stone Age with lyrics that just about anyone can relate to.
