Album: Fucked Up to release rock opera ‘David Comes To Life’
Toronto based punk band Fucked Up have unveiled the details of their epic third album. ‘David Comes To Life’, the follow up to 2008′s ‘Chemistry of Common Life’, is an 18 song 78 minute rock opera complete with companion records and detailed story line.
The band posted on their blog that they’d initially had the idea in 2006 and that the album has been a long time coming. “We had gotten used to the easy-going pace of putting out 23,435,494 seven-inch singles a year, which we’d been doing for the previous five years. We decided the only thing more ridiculous than putting out a 73-minute punk record was to just say ‘fuck it’ and do a musical.”
The band have given us the first single from the album, “The Other Shoe”. Three more singles will be made available in the lead up to the release of ‘David Comes To Life’ in early June this year. Stay tuned!
