Fucked Up Dose Your Dreams Indies exclusive double LP is on yellow in clear coloured vinyl, includes a newsprint poster and a download code. The new full length album from the awesome punkers Fucked Up. “I was sent an unfinished version of Dose Your Dreams so that I might contribute string parts. I couldn’t stop listening to the rough mixes I received. A friend asked me how the record was. I replied, “My God, Fucked Up have made their Screamadelica.” And psych-rock-groove it is. The drums mixed wide, propensity for drones, for delay pedal, for repetition, groove. The politics and aesthetics of hardcore married to an “open format” approach to genre. Elements of doo-wop, krautrock, groove, digital hardcore. “None of Your Business Man” opens the album in familiar enough territory, a saxassisted exit from an office space. But things get psychedelic very quickly. Merge Records CD | LP

Fucked Up Live At Third Man Records Fucked Up are a rare band, mixing a mutant strain of post-hardcore and punk. Playing a roaring set at Third Man Records. Punk is a genre known for its velocity, brevity and politics, although here we have an almost complete inversion of those core traits: songs don’t race the clock, mythology and storytelling weaving fully realized narratives, and a bipartisan set with a 100% approval rating.

Fucked Up Year Of The Snake Year Of The Snake is the eighth installment in the long-running series by Toronto punks Fucked Up cataloging the Chinese zodiac. As thrashing as the track’s first eight minutes are, the rest of it is actually a meditative piece inspired by band member Mike Haliechuk’s trip to Nepal. “It’s about how to die, or how to think about dying,” Haliechuk told Noisey. “Well, it’s kind of about how the process is within life. How you are constantly thinking about it and living it. Like how you are being reborn, reshaped, and how you can go thru something and come out the other end as something else.” Tankcrimes 12" | CD
Fucked Up Year of the Hare An epic EP from prog-hardcore-punks Fucked Up! Fucked Up “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. While B-Side “California Cold” slowly builds and deconstructs over an 8 and a half minute stretch. Organically shifting from jangly melodic-punk anthem into a fuzzed out psychedelic jam session. Eclectically blending musical styles and voices in the most, well, Fucked Up way possible. Deathwish 12"
Fucked Up Paper The House New limited single from brilliant progressive hardcore punks Fucked Up! It features Paper The House from Glass Boys and Galloping which comes from the same recording session as the album. . Matador 7"
Fucked Up Glass Boys Expected 2nd June - limited double LP features alternative artwork and the second LP has features a different mix of the album with half time drums! We also have a hanfull of totew bags to give away with pre-orders! New album from Toronto experimental/progressive hardore punks Fucked Up who we enjoyed twice so far in Kingston! Musically, Glass Boys carries echoes of some of the more ragged and adventurous bands from America's punk past (Husker Du, Dinosaur Jr.), but it also has some of the anthemic charge of the Who and the guttural intensity of Negative Approach. Singer Damian Abraham still growls like a demon, but he's found more range and depth in his bark. Drummer Jonah Falco does something innovative on the LP, adding two separate drum tracks, one of them in half-time, adding a psychedelic, disorienting feel. (A limited vinyl edition of the album includes a bonus version that only features Falco's half-time drums.) The triple-guitar battalion of Mike Haliechuk, Ben Cook, and Josh Zucker still builds symphonies out of feedback and power-chords, but this time around, there's less emphasis on world-crushing riffs and more on world-creating textures. Bassist Sandy Miranda is now even more a part of that storm, her instrument blurring in with that overwhelming guitar roar. Matador CD | LP
