Hardcore Maniacs FUCKED UP Already Back With New Slam Dunk Album ‘ONE DAY’

Standout longplayers

27 January 2023


(Press photo)

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
of EPs.

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!

HIGH FIVE – 5 New Big Ones For The Weekend

5 new big ones to stay on track in the weekend

14 October 2022

Let’s roll

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Band: GRIMELDA
Who: 2-chump freaky noise-rock from Saskatchewan, Canada
Motto: “We literally and purposefully ripped off other rock songs
and made our own “conventional” rock anthem. The point was twofold:
rock music is dumb and everyone steals ideas but also rock ‘n roll is
FUN so who cares.”

New single: GEORGE THOROGOOD
Who: Blues rock hero from Delaware, US

“Why’s it called “George Thorogood?” Cause we’re all George Thorogood.
George is a good old rocker dude who wrote songs about rocking out so we
figured he’s a fitting subject. It’s about embracing your inner George and
saying to yourself “heck ya, I rock!”

What we need in these fucked-up times are wacko motherrockers like these
who show that punk havoc doesn’t have to be serious all the time, as long as
it played with mean, mad, and manic neurosis so we all fun in the moshpit.

Pat Piasecki

Band: DIABLOGATO
Who: A collaborative band where each of its four members contribute equally to the overall vision, songwriting, and storytelling. So it makes sense that as the Boston rock and roll brigade watches the world burn, an invitation is extended for everyone else to join in and drift into the “Jet Black Night” – all that’s needed is a little white noise and anesthesia.

New single: JET BLACK NIGHT

“With all the crazy in the world that we have such little control over, we are trying to
rally our fellow people into the darkness together. Because no matter how much despair and disaster we face, together we are not alone in the darkness facing it – into the ‘Jet Black Night’.”

This is a blues rock-fueled sledgehammer, a nasty mid-tempo groove
for all doomed people out there, pretty much all of us. No rest for the
wicked. If we have to go down, let’s do it together while having bad-ass
blasts like this on the stereo.

Holy smoke. What a hammer blow of a debut. For a second I thought
it was industrial psycho Al Jourgensen and his hotrod squad Ministry
who made my speekers go gaga. A reference that counts big time.

Eye-catching clips

10 December 2021

Band: FUCKED UP
Who: Experimental noise explores from Toronto making
electrical hardcore waves for 20 years now / 5 studio LPs (so far).

Last May the FUCKED UP Toronto launched another part
of their Chinese Zodiac series called YEAR OF THE HORSE
containing four acts with contributions from The National’s
Matt Berninger
and Julien Baker among others.

Turn Up The Volume wrote back then: “Fucked Up go on
a knock-down-and-drag-out expedition while switching from
loud to quiet and vice versa, from hardcore to prog-rock sketches,
from intimidating to relaxing, from cinematic to symphonic, from
trippy to jazzy. Totally Godspeeded-and-freaked-up.

And they just shared a 14-minute short
film visualizing the album’s story.

Watch the horse of 2021 wandering through
the fields and the woods on its way to the night…
