Frontier Touring presents
FUCKED UP w/ special guests LOSER
Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce the return of roaring Toronto six-piece F**ked Up, heading to Australia for the very first time since 2015 for three exclusive headline shows in October 2019.
Live, the Canadians are one of the most momentous, heavy lifting acts on the planet... Don’t delay in grabbing tickets, as these intimate headline shows will sell out!
F**ked Up will perform at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne on Wednesday 9 October; Oxford Art Factory, Sydney on Thursday 10 October; and Saturday 12 October at Crowbar Brisbane.
The Polaris prize-winning band (they took out Canada’s top music trophy with 2008’s The Chemistry Of Modern Life) return to our shores in support of their colossal fifth opus, Dose Your Dreams, out now via Merge Records. A 90 minute, double-length concept album, Dose Your Dreams sees the return of lyrical protagonist David Eliade, first introduced by frontman Damian Abraham on 2011’s critically-acclaimed punk opera, David Comes To Life.
Now working 9-to-5, a depressed David’s life begins to change when he meets elderly mystic Joyce. From that starting point, F**ked Up throw away any musical pre-conceptions, and hit the ground running: this is the band at their anthemic, transcendent best. Working across a myriad of wildly experimental genres with special guests, F**ked Up deliver everything from prog rock to indie and psych, doo-wop, krautrock, groove, hardcore and more. As Spin, Dose Your Dream cements F**ked Up’s legend as “an exercise in excess, intentionally impossible to replicate.”
‘F**ked Up have made their Screamadelica’ – Owen Pallett (Final Fantasy)
‘F**ked Up are still making some of the most exciting, immediate music of their career.’ – Stereogum
‘...Everything that made F**ked Up a critical sensation – the saxophones, disco beats, not-all-hardcore genre experiments, and the adventures of David Eliade – are back.’ – Pitchfork
‘Blistering punk rock, stadium alienation, twinkling club-thump, ecstatic pop shiver … then there are those songs, those mad and soaring anthems, that only this band can do.’ – The Atlantic
Psych-rock grooves; an infinite universe; live, a snarling beast… Don’t miss F**ked Up touring Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane for Frontier Touring, October 2019!
F**ked Up are Damian Abraham (vocals), Mike Haliechuk (guitar/vox), Josh Zucker (guitar), Ben Cook (guitar, vox), Sandy Miranda (bass) and Jonah Falco (drums).
