Fucked Up

Fucked Up, the esteemed Canadian punk band, is bringing their United States tour to the San Francisco Bay Area. Having achieved the heights of critical acclaim, Fucked Up has kept a true, honest punk sound that’s continued even while garnering major success. The band’s 80s/90s hardcore punk feel is jam-packed with quick drum beats, heavy breakdowns, and screaming vocals from frontman Damian Abraham.

This time, they’ll be hitting the stage again where they once performed, years ago, a cover of “Blitzkrieg Bop” with the Dead Kennedy’s frontman, Jello Biafra.

In June the band released their fourth LP, Glass Boys, on Matador Records, which confronted the topic of growing old (or wiser) in a youth-filled, and ever-changing punk scene. The album is an acknowledgement of change, while honoring a steadfast approach of sticking to their classic and beloved punk roots.
