Fucked Up: stream new album “David Comes To Life” via NPR + touring(Philly date)

leave a comment »

The Toronto band with an inappropriate name, Fucked Up, have a new record David Comes To Life coming June 7th via Matador Records. It’s a concept album that’s broken down into four separate acts. Some are calling it a ‘rock opera’. That description makes me cringe a bit because it makes me think of Green Day’s “American Idiot”. That being said though, I have complete faith in Fucked Up and their music. Below you can watch a 10 minute documentary on the new album and if you head over to NPR, you can stream the entire album right now. Head over here to read the entire story of the album.

They’ll be in Philly later this month at the First Unitarian Church on Sunday, June 26th with Jeff The Brotherhood. Tickets for the show can be found HERE. This show is going to be a hot, sweaty mess in the basement of the church.
