    F**cked Up

    Punk

    F**cked Up are a punk band. They were a punk band when they started in Toronto more than a decade ago, and they’ve remained a punk band even as they’ve ascended to career heights that their younger selves never could’ve imagined. But how do you remain a punk band when you’re on magazine covers, or sharing stadium stages with the Foo Fighters? How do you stay true to your 15- year-old self when you’ve got a career to maintain, and families to support? Those are the questions that F**cked Up asks on Glass Boys. And they ask those questions in the form of a blazing, titanic, ultimately triumphant rock album.

    The last two F**cked Up albums were sweeping, defining, monolithic gestures. On 2008’s The Chemistry Of Common Life, they tested hardcore’s capacity for stylistic innovation, for seven minute songs and unconventional arrangements, and they won Canada’s prestigious Polaris Music Prize in the process. With 2011’s David Comes To Life, they offered up a full-blown rock opera, coming with one larger-than-life hook after another, and that made them even bigger, and further away from the Toronto hardcore scene that nurtured them. Glass Boys isn’t a retrenchment or a back-to-basics move; it’s too ambitious and complex for that. But after those last two albums, it’s tight and concise and direct, an album of real and direct sentiment rather than artifice.

    Musically, Glass Boys carries echoes of some of the more ragged and adventurous bands from America’s punk past (Husker Du, Dinosaur Jr.), but it also has some of the anthemic charge of the Who and the guttural intensity of Negative Approach. Singer Damian Abraham still growls like a demon, but he’s found more range and depth in his bark. Drummer Jonah Falco does something innovative on the LP, adding two separate drum tracks, one of them in half-time, adding a psychedelic, disorienting feel. (A limited vinyl edition of the album includes a bonus version that only features Falco’s half-time drums.) The triple-guitar battalion of Mike Haliechuk, Ben Cook, and Josh Zucker still builds symphonies out of feedback and power-chords, but this time around, there’s less emphasis on world-crushing riffs and more on world-creating textures. Bassist Sandy Miranda is now even more a part of that storm, her instrument blurring in with that overwhelming guitar roar.

    And if the album’s lyrics concern the quest to stay true to your younger self, the music pulls off the trick beautifully. “Echo Boomer,” like “Son The Father” and “Let Her Rest” before it, makes for a powerful album opener, a surge of catharsis that gives a strong idea of what’s to come. “Sun Glass” builds from acoustic strumming to bleary pummel and stays pretty the whole time. “DET” has one of those world-annihilating choruses that demands a full-room singalong. And the album-closing title track is a blast of epic catharsis as grand and forceful as anything this band has ever done. After two monumental concept-driven concept albums, F**cked Up have made another heart-expanding, life-affirming piece of work, and this time, they’ve done it by shooting straight from the heart.

    TERROR vocalist Scott Vogel comments, “When I was in high school, I would go to ‘Home of the Hits Records’ in Buffalo, NY and every week I would check for new Victory releases. Growing up, Victory Records always had the best hardcore bands, period. They had this awesome packaging and vibe that I loved. INTEGRITYSTRIFEBLOODLET,EARTH CRISIS -it was a fucking amazing time for hardcore. Later, I met Tony when he came to Buffalo to seeSNAPCASE. We stayed in contact and made plans for my second band DESPAIR, but soon after we broke up. Victory and my band BURIED ALIVE worked together for years. They also had HATEBREEDBLOOD FOR BLOODALL OUT WAR and REACH THE SKY, all bands I’ve always respected and held in the highest regard. This summer I hung out with Tony and we had a wild night in Chicago. We talked about the good and bad of hardcore today and just had a blast. No business talk, no nonsense. We were under contract at the time so there wasn't even room for it. As we got ready to release Live By The CodeTERROR and Century Media debated on how to release the record right and VICTORY RECORDS seemed like the best fit. Tony and I are both insane. We both come from the same place. We both scratch and fight to stay afloat. We still believe in the essence of hardcore and still love WARZONE. This is pretty fucking exciting.” 

    Vogel claims Live By The Code “hits harder than Keepers Of The Faith”, calling it the “dirtiest, rawest and most hardcore record we’ve done since Lowest Of The Low”.  Released April 9th, Live By The Code debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, #28 on the Billboard Independent Chart, and made it into the Billboard Top Current Album Chart at #122. LAMBGOAT comments, “Terror shows yet again why they have become known as one of the most consistent and highly regarded hardcore bands playing today”.

    TERROR
     finished up January in Japan before returning to the states to begin a February tour with H20,BACKTRACK and CODE ORANGE KIDS, with a sold-out show nearly every night. They then packed their bags once more and trekked across Europe for the Rebellion Tour with MADBALL in March. “Terror are the biggest hardcore band in the world. I have known Scott for twenty years and he has remained true to what he believes in, cherishes and helps keep alive which is first and foremost- hardcore. If you are just discovering hardcore or have loved it since the movement started in the late 1970’s this album is for you,” said Victory founder Tony Brummel. Never resting,TERROR then wrapped up the Divinity of Purpose tour with HATEBREED and EVERY TIME I DIE, and performed at the 15th anniversary of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival on April 20th in Worcester, MA.  Their highly anticipated full-US tour alongside LAMB OF GOD and DECAPITATED will begin May 16th in Asheville, NC. TERRORwill also be featured on the 2013 All Stars Tour alongside EVERY TIME I DIE. With an unrelenting touring schedule and an explosive new album, 2013 will bring the resurgence of real hardcore, TERROR leading the way.
