Fucked Up

Pink Eye took to the [Brooklyn stage with his child on his shoulders before ripping through the recent opus David Comes to Life in its entirety. The energy comprised by this band is nearly unmatched by most other acts today. Aggressive vocals, lightning drumming, and shredding guitar blasts make up the concept masterpiece that unfolded live before the crowd tonight and just like sitting down to listen to this record (although I doubt many people remain sitting while this thing plays), the idea can be daunting. However, Fucked Up play with such precision and comradory that the monumental album seemed to go by in the blink of an eye. Aside from telling the audience to “give a thumbs up to anyone partaking in the protests”, the onstage banter was kept to a minimal, allowing the brilliance of the band to shine through and through.-[omgnyc]

Fucked Up played their second show with Titus Andronicus Tuesday night at Warsaw (where the above review comes from). The first was at Le Poisson Rouge one night earlier. Both shows’ focus was on the band’s recent David Came to Life and included additional instrumentation above and beyond the usual five-piece hardcore unit.

Fucked Up is now apparently going on a bit of a hiatus meaning limited touring. We’ll see how that plays out. For now they have upcoming shows in Australia and on the Bruise Cruise which recently added Mikal Cronin and Vockah Redu to the lineup. All dates are listed below.

In the meantime, Fucked Up’s Ben Cook is gearing up to release a collection of songs with his garage-punk power pop band Marvelous Darlings. The Marvelous Darlings have a new LP of compiled 7″ tracks in Single Life, out Nov 22 via Deranged Records. Download one track, “I Don’t Wanna Go To THe Party” above and stream that LP in its entirety below alongside all Fucked Up tour dates and a recent F’d Up video for “Running on Nothing”…
