The nice Toronto punk rock adventurers Fucked Up are on their very own mystical journey. Final 12 months, Fucked Up launched the gorgeous four-part epic Yr Of The Horse, a report that’ll technically seem of their discography as an EP though it’s so long as a double album. This fall, Fucked Up will comply with Yr Of The Horse with a brand new 12″ EP known as Oberon. They’ve simply shared the early observe “Strix,” and it rocks.
Oberon is known as for the king of the fairies, as described in A Midsummer Evening’s Dream, and this appears like a sign that Fucked Up are not letting up with their heavy mythology. At present, they’ve shared the early observe “Strix,” a observe named for a mythic medieval chicken that eats human flesh and that serves as a darkish omen. The tune is a pummeling noise-rock trudge with some severely unhinged Jesus Lizard shit happening. It’s each punishing and superior. Beneath, hearken to “Strix” and take a look at the Oberon tracklist.
