Fucked Up – One Day [Streaming]

Today the Toronto band Fucked Up dropped their anticipated sixth album One Day via Merge Records.
Their most straight up hardcore punk rocking album as a full band without the bells and whistles of special guest from their previous effort Dose Your Dreams.
More melodic and not as exhausting when listening to a very long album since it clocks up to 40 minutes.

About the album:
Written and recorded in the span of one literal day, One Day sees the band delivering one of the most energizing and intricate albums of their entire career. The Canadian hardcore legends have been known for their epic scale in the past, from towering concept albums to 12-hour performances—so it might be a surprise that Fucked Up’s sixth studio album is their shortest to date, but it’s simply a massive-sounding record that arrives in deceptively small confines.

The idea to write and record an album in one day came to mind for Haliechuk in the closing months of 2019, and it forms the ideological and structural backbone of One Day. Haliechuk got himself into a studio and proceeded to write and record the record’s ten tracks over three eight-hour sessions, reconnecting with the core of his and the band’s songwriting essence in the process. Though work on One Day was completed remotely, Fucked Up as a whole adhered to the 24-hour rule during the creative process, including vocalist Damian Abraham (who returned to contributing lyrics as well for the first time since 2014’s Glass Boys).

The resulting One Day is a record that sounds full-bodied and immediate, with music that burns brutally and passionately in a way that only Fucked Up can evoke. The guitars sound like ziggurats reaching to the sky, reaching dizzying levels of melodic interplay while always maintaining a tuneful clarity. It’s an undeniable work of confidence from a band that continues to operate at the top of their game, making music that’s guaranteed to last a lifetime and beyond.
