F**ked Up return to the UK this week for shows in support of their magnificent album David Comes To Life. The culmination of these dates sees the band play a special performance, bringing their annual Halloween party to the UK for the first time with a headline set at The Scala in London on October 31st, where the band will play in costume and those attending are highly advised to do so too. There will be competitions, prizes and a photographer to document the best and the worst of the nights fancy dress attempts, so dress to impress!
Also playing and joining in for the dressing up fun will be Eagulls and Cold Pumas
Right from the start, Toronto’s FUCKED UP have been pushing musical and conceptual boundaries. On new album David Comes To Life The band sound tighter, with more space for the flourishes and imaginative song-writing that entwine their love of British indie pop with heavy riffing, and some genuinely twisted turns. The triple-guitar interplay between Mike Haliechuk, Josh Zucker and Ben Cook has risen to symphonic levels. They channel musicians from Angus Young, Pete Townshend and Noel Gallagher to Bob Stinson and Lyle Preslar with ease and grace. As for the story, more on that to come…
