Fucked Up to set New Zealand ablaze this October

Canadian hardcore punkstars Fucked Up are on their way to tearing up NZ venues with their latest 'Dose Your Dreams' tour this October. The route will see the troupe perform two rollicking concerts at Auckland's Whammy Bar and Wellington's San Fran. Joining the band as special guests will be punk rockers Contenders for the Auckland show and Ayn Randy and DAFM for the Wellington date.

Fucked Up are a musical act which defies classification, whilst firmly keeping the hardcore punk rock dream alive. With their ferocious wave of sound and relentless energy, the group are considered to be one of the most momentous, heavy lifting bands around. They've been expanding the horizons of hardcore, the perspective of punk, and the range of (art) rock for the past 13 years. Starting with their 2006 debut 'Hidden World', which was followed by 2018's Polaris Music Prize Award-winning 'The Chemistry Of Modern Life', 2011's four-act rock-opera 'David Comes To Life' (where we first meet "David Eliade"), and 2014's 'Glass Boys' which saw the band take another evolutionary punk-rock leap without leaving anyone pining for the past.

Their latest 18-track opus 'Dose Your Dreams' is their fifth full-length studio release. It's an album that continues the story of David Eliade (the character in the song 'David Comes to Life')—featuring contributions from Jennifer Castle, J Mascis, Owen Pallett, and Lido Pimienta.

"The 18 eclectic tracks hang together because of a gleeful joie de vivre, and are the best songs of the band's career." - The Guardian

"It's powerfully confronting, unashamedly angry, unrelenting and it's long. Yet throughout, the band's mastery guides the album. The ebb and flow—often squeezed into the running time of a single track—is as beautiful as it is disarming." - DIY Magazine
