Fucked up at HoV, 2013 (more by Maclyn Bean,)

Toronto punks Fucked Up have announced that they'll be releasing their fourth LP, Glass Boys this summer. While Matador will handle putting it out in the US and globally, the band is working with hometown label Arts & Crafts for the first time to release it in Canada.

The group previewed the new record by playing it live straight through at their Long Winter series show on March 7. Now Toronto was at the event (which also included karaoke, comedy and a sleepover) and writes....

The new songs feature an even wider array of unexpected influences than before, at times pushing their unique take on hardcore closer to the prog rock of Rush, and other moments the chiming power pop of Big Star. There was even a section that sounded more like a swinging psychedelic jam band. [Now Toronto]
The only other hint at what the album might sound like is a super brief teaser trailer the band posted earlier this week. Watch that below.

In addition to that record, they'll be putting out this year's entry in their zodiac series, Year of the Dragon, 12-inch on April 15 through Tank Crimes. That's available for pre-order now.

And on top of all that, Fucked Up is down in Austin this week for SXSW this week, and they are indeed one of the "artists we're excited to see." The band's SXSW schedule is listed, along with album art, and the Glass Boys teaser, below...

Making some strategy can be a good reason for people to remember you.
