Fucked Up - One Day (Exclusive Milky Clear Vinyl)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
With One Day, Fucked Up have delivered one of the most energizing and intricate albums of their career, a massive-sounding record that arrives in deceptively small confines. The Toronto hardcore legends have been known for their epic scale in the past, so it might be a surprise that Fucked Up's sixth studio album is their shortest to date, written and recorded in the confines of one literal day (hence the title). Don't mistake size for substance, though: the band's sound has only gotten bigger, more hard-charging, with even denser thickets of melody.
Guitarist Mike Haliechuk got himself into a studio and proceeded to write and record the record's ten tracks over three eight-hour sessions, reconnecting with the core the band's songwriting essence in the process. Initially, Fucked Up vocalist Damian Abraham was also set to complete his vocals in similar fashion - that is, before the lockdowns of 2020 took place. As it turns out, the isolation yielded creative dividends, as Abraham returned to contributing lyrics as well for the first time since 2014's Glass Boys. One Day is an undeniable work of confidence from a band that continues to operate at the top of their game, making music that's guaranteed to last a lifetime and beyond.
