Fuck The Facts

After a set in Pomona at Scion Rock Fest 2011, Fuck The Facts headed east for a short tour that ended at Cake Shop on Saturday. Celebrating their 10th anniversary, the Canadian band’s material they showcased at the Manhattan show was spread across all of their output, touching on burners like “The Sound of Your Smashed Head” from Sigmata Hi-Five, to “Wake” from the band’s latest Unnamed EP.

Psychic Limb directly supported FTF, and in speaking with the band following their set I found that the band played all of a forthcoming LP (!) in order. PL hopes to have the new LP up and out by their appearance supporting Unbroken at a sold-out Santos. We’ll keep you up to date.

Radiation Blackbody is 2/3 (Josh/Joel) of Defeatist, and their uber-complex hardcore-meets-tech was fascinating and offered a good counterpoint to the late 90s post-hardcore stylings of Swords of Chaos from Iceland who were also on the bill. Josh of Radiation Blackbody/Defeatist is also the bassist for Castevet, who will play the BrooklynVegan/ProfoundLore show at Lovejoys in Austin on 3/19 followed by the Profound Lore official showcase at Valhalla later that night.
