Listen to ‘California Cold’ / See Fucked Up on tour in May, June & July – ‘Year Of The Hare’ available June 16th, 2015

Fucked Up are one of the most prolific hardcore punk bands of our generation. Since their 2001 inception, they’ve challenged listeners with thoughtful artful chaos and a seemingly limitless drive for musical experimentation. Because of this, they’ve also become a record collectors worst nightmare; releasing over 80 recordings and collaborations on countless labels that include Arts & Crafts, Matador, Jade Tree, and more. ‘Year Of The Hare’ is the latest installment of their ‘Zodiac’ themed releases. Over a two year period, it was recorded and constructed at Electrical Audio, Key Club Studios, and Candle Studios. Title track ‘Year Of The Hare’ is a 21 minute epic that frantically mixes traditional instrumentation, piano/synths, flutes and sax, experimental editing/soundscapes, and guest vocals from great Isla Craig into one dizzying experience. B-Side ‘California Cold’ slowly builds and deconstructs over an 8 and a half minute stretch – listen to the song now:

To mark the release of ‘Year Of The Hare’ (available June 16th from Deathwish), Fucked Up will expand their live lineup to 9 members by including friends DOOMSQUAD to embark on a string of exclusive ‘Zodiac’ shows. Fucked Up will perform a different set of ‘Zodiac’ songs each night; many of these songs have never been played live before, and this tour will allow the band to flex a more improvisational and experimental muscle, while retaining all of the power and frenzy of a Fucked Up show.
