Fucked Up announce new album ‘Dose Your Dreams’

The band’s latest full-length picks up the narrative thread of the characters featured in ‘David Comes To Life’.

Fucked Up have confirmed details of their new album ‘Dose Your Dreams’. 

The Toronto-based band, who released their last album ‘Glass Boys’ back in 2014, have announced plans to release their new, double album (yup…) on 5th October via Merge. 

‘Dose Your Dreams’ also sees the band revisit a host of the characters which first featured into their concept album ‘David Comes To Life’, including their main protagonist David. 

Their fifth album will feature contributions from J Mascis, Miya Folick, Lido Pimienta and Owen Pallett, who also wrote the band’s latest bio, in which he said: I was sent an unfinished version of ‘Dose Your Dreams’ so that I might contribute string parts. I couldn’t stop listening to the rough mixes I received. A friend asked me how the record was. I replied, “My God, F*cked Up have made their ‘Screamadelica’.”

The band have also offered up a first taste of the record in the form ‘Raise Your Voice Joyce’, which introduces us to new character Joyce Tops, a revolutionary sorcerer that, y’know, live in a bin outside of David’s work.
