Fucked Up Announce North American 2023 Tour Dates
Celebrating the release of their sixth studio album One Day, Toronto’s hardcore rock band Fucked Up are set for a North American headline tour that kickstarts in Philadelphia, PA, from April 27th, 2023.
One Day sees Fucked Up deliver one of their most energizing albums to date. The idea to write and record an album in one day came to mind for Mike Haliechuk (Guitarist) 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).
Marking their album release, the band also shared the music video for the track “Cicada”. The single is dedicated to lost friends and sees Haliechuk return to vocals for the release.
“‘Cicada’ is about what life is like after you lose people, and our responsibility to carry them forward into the future, using the things they taught us as a light. I like to imagine the sound of cicadas as a metaphor for our strange life in the subculture—we all just live these weird little hidden lives under the dirt, and then once in a generation, one of us gets to bust out of the dirt and intone their song so loud that it can be heard all over”, explains Haliechuk.
