Fucked Up

Toronto band Fucked Up, have announced their forthcoming double-album Dose Your Dreams, will arrive worldwide October 5th via Merge (save for Arts & Crafts in Canada). In addition to new tour dates in North America, Fucked Up are announcing the news with “Raise Your Voice Joyce,” the first single from Dose Your Dreams. It marks a return to the group’s perennial hero David as he encounters the revolutionary sorcerer Joyce Tops, who lives in a garbage bin behind his work, set to an incendiary Buzzcocks-inspired track. Check out the lyric video below.

Here is an excerpt from the Owen Pallett-penned bio:

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, Fucked Up have made their Screamadelica.”

And psych-rock-groove it is. The drums mixed wide, propensity for drones, for delay pedal, for repetition, groove. The politics and aesthetics of hardcore married to an “open format” approach to genre. Elements of doo-wop, krautrock, groove, digital hardcore.

Never a band content with releasing just one version of a hit song, Fucked Up are also putting out a limited 7-inch featuring a different mix of the single and a non-LP B-side.
