Fucked Up Announce North American Tour

Fucked Up Announce North American Tour
Following the success of The Chemistry of Common Life, Toronto's expletive-packing Fucked Up have announced their first dates of 2009. Kicking things off in Ottawa in mid-January, the prog-y punkers have lined up two months' worth of shows, many undoubtedly bringing mayhem but none a 12-hour endurance exercise.

Fucked Up have a pile of different touring partners this time around, once again pairing up with Brooklyn garage poppers Vivian Girls, as well as bands such as Aids Wolf, Mika Miko and Vincent Black Shadow. There's no word if there will be any new goods up for grab at the merch table but Fucked Up's blog tells us to "check back in a few days when someting interesting may have happened." Like word of new tunes? Or maybe the tour announcement is the interesting thing, or better yet, Fucked Up patting themselves on the back for recently topping Exclaim!'s best of 2008 No Future list?
