My beloved Fucked Up are going to be releasing this new “I Hate Summer” split 7″ on Bruise Cruise Records, and it’ll be given away to those attending the Bruise Cruise Festival that’s going down in February aboard a large boat.
The song itself is pretty lightweight – short, fast, got some hooks in there, lo-fi production. Clearly they didn’t go in with the kind of budget or ambition they did for David Comes Alive, but I don’t think anyone could really blame them – that shit was pretty epic. Anyways, it’s enjoyable, so enjoy it. They also made a cute little Christmas video promo for the Bruise Cruise thing that they’re headlining (see above).
Oh, and what’s on the other side of the split? A song by Detroit garage-rockers The Dirtbombs. Who are pretty awesome and will also be playing Bruise Cruise. (via Exclaim)
I met the Grundy brothers when I lived in Halifax. They were both very, very nice boys and they played in a great band called Gamma Gamma Rays. Since then it looks like they’ve gotten considerably more interesting and garage-y in their tastes with Quaker Parents. I approve. (via Weird Canada)
