Killing Puritans is the 4th studio album by Armand van Helden. It was released as CD and as quadruple vinyl.

Controversy[edit]

Its cover art prominently featured an African child soldier, prone, and aiming a rifle. The image was controversial enough to prompt calls for a ban. Eventually, UK versions of the album were sold in a plain brown cardboard sleeve that concealed the offending image.[citation needed]
