Fucked Up playing ‘Hidden World’ at Rough Trade before tour w/ Black Lips (BrooklynVegan presale)
Toronto punk collective Fucked Up will be on tour with Black Lips in April, playing Boston, Portland, ME, Montreal, Toronto, Chicago and Minneapolis. The band note they were supposed to play a 2006 CMJ show with Black Lips at Cake Shop, but got denied entry at the border. "And now 13 years later as the US borders are as angry as ever, this tour is coming back to life."
Before the tour with Black Lips starts, and in another nod to 2006, Fucked Up will warm up with an intimate show at Brooklyn's Rough Trade on April 21 where they will play their 2006 album Hidden World in full. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, February 8 at noon but you can get them early with the BrooklynVegan presale that starts Wednesday (2/6) at 10 AM. Check back Wednesday morning for the presale password.
UPDATE: Our presale password is FUBV
UPDATE 2: We're having technical difficulties with our presale -- we're working on it, stand by. PRESALE IS WORKING NOW
Fucked Up also have a headline show in Ferndale, IL and will play Punk Rock Bowling 2019 in May. They just wrapped up a UK/EU tour where dates included a London show at The Garage on January 25 with Chastity. Pictures from that show are in the gallery above.
In related news, congrats to Damian Abraham on reaching 200 episodes of his great Turned Out a Punk podcast (available on iTunes, Spotify, his website and wherever else you find podcasts). Actually, episode 200 isn't out yet as of this post, but catch up on the previous 199 episodes if you haven't yet. The newest one features a great chat with Conor Oberst & Phoebe Bridgers about their new project Better Oblivion Community Center (recorded right before they revealed themselves to the world), and the archives are full of fascinating chats with punk legends, punk comedians, current punks, and more. Stream that, and other episodes, below.
All dates are listed, along with a stream of Hidden World and last year's Dose Your Dreams, below.
Before their dates with Fucked Up, Black Lips have three upcoming NYC-area shows, which are all with Quintron & Miss Pussycat.
