It looks like Death From Above 1979 aren’t the only loud outfit that are gonna be heading to Nashville’s Third Man Studios this summer: Canadian chaos-causers Fucked Up have now also been confirmed to record a live album at the studio.
The band, who released their rather lengthy EP ‘Year of the Hare’ through Deathwish Inc. last month, will be visiting Jack White’s infamous Blue Room. They’ll be heading in to record their live performance “direct-to-acetate” in the Blue Room on 5th July.
A statement that has appeared on the Third Man website, about their latest guests, read as follows.
“We’re freaking out over here. Feverish isn’t even the right word for it. Perhaps we’re just, oh I don’t know, DELIGHTED to announce that Fucked Up is back on the road and their Zodiac Series tour is making its way to Nashville all the way from Toronto, the provincial capital of Ontario, Canada. What better way to celebrate a new release? What do you mean “which new release”? Why, Year of The Hare (on Deathwish Inc.) is the seventh 12’’ single in Fucked Up’s Zodiac series! It’s an ongoing patchwork of epic and explosive songcraft and FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY they’ll be playing selections from the series at random. All recorded direct-to-acetate. They’ll be bringing Doom Squad along for the ride to open up the show here at TMR. It’s one of the most ambitious and sprawling bills ever to grace the Blue Room stage.
Fucked Up is a rare band. They’re a mutant strain of post-hardcore, arena-punk, super-talents capable of reworking the strange and the beautiful into a cohesive whole, but not at the expense of their furious underpinnings that keeps the band in constant motion. They are truly a blitzkrieg of song and lyric. It’s gonna be a frenzy. Thanks, Canada!”
