A Forest of Arms is the sixth studio album by Canadian folk rock band Great Lake Swimmers, released April 21, 2015 on Nettwerk.


The album was recorded in a variety of locations, including the Tyendinaga Caves in Ontario's Hastings County. The songs were inspired in part by bandleader and songwriter Tony Dekker's experiences working with the World Wildlife Fund on environmental projects.

Guest musicians on the album include Kevin Kane of The Grapes of Wrath.

The track "Zero in the City" was released in February as a streaming preview.
