Eat your own ears & Noisey to present a co headline show for Fucked Up and Titus Andronicus.
Fucked Up push musical and conceptual boundaries. Forming ostensibly as a punk band, they swiftly took on hardcore twisting it into their own cacophony of unexpected instrumentation, psychedelic leanings, and songs stretched to perverse lengths. Combine this with the legendary live reputation of frontman Abraham who stage dives nude with a blood-strewn face, and their lyrics that reflect situationist philosophy, means even in their loudest moments there is a deep intelligence to their music.
Titus Andronicus released their latest album ‘Local Business’ in October 2012. It is the first time the lineup touring the record is the same one that made it, which makes it a safe bet the tracks will sound great live! The tracks still bear many of the characteristics of classic Titus Andronicus songs, with rhythms to beat out on your steering wheel, triumphant classic rock guitars, and lead singer Stickles showing off his underrated sense of tunefulness.
