Band: FUCKED UP
Who: Ominous hard-core-noise warriors from Toronto making
electrical waves for 20 years now / 6 studio albums (new one incl.)
The Canadian noiseniks were very productive last year with no less than
4 LPs centered around the same theme Year Of The Horse and a couple
And only one month in the new year and the hardcore maniacs
already have a new longplayer to offer, baptized ONE DAY.
Press info: “With ‘One Day’, Fucked Up have delivered one of the most energizing and intricate albums of their career, a massive-sounding record that arrives in deceptively small confines. The Canadian hardcore legends have been known for their epic scale in the past, so it might be a surprise that Fucked Up’s sixth studio album is their shortest to date, written and recorded in the confines of one literal day (hence the title). Don’t mistake size for substance, though: The band’s sound has only gotten bigger, more hard-charging, with even denser thickets of melody.”
Mike Haliechuk (guitarist): “I wanted to see what I could record in literally one day.”
Damian Abraham (vocalist) It almost felt like it might be the last time I’d ever get
to record vocals for anything.”
TUTV: It’s back to their fuckin’ roots. Raw and rough, loud and Herculian, and
at times, yes, surprisingly catchy with strings! Final result: a power-core-house
juggernaut nailed in 24 studio hours.
What a day!
