Published Aug 22, 2014As promised earlier in the summer, Fucked Up have just delivered another pair of 7-inch singles sporting b-sides recorded during the same sessions as their latest album, Glass Boys.
The announcement arrived earlier today (August 22) on the group's Facebook page, where they confirmed that each record sports an unreleased track. The first mini-platter finds Glass Boys single "Sun Glass" on the A-side, while the flip houses a "poppy" new track titled "B.O.K." that "never made it on the record because it didn't fit too well musically." The second 7-inch likewise includes a Glass Boys track, "Paper the House," while also featuring an extra titled "Galloping." While that tune wasn't officially released until now, a slow-rolling passage from the number was featured in a trailer for Glass Boys. You can check out the piano-driven preview down below.
Both records are up for grabs now on Fucked Up's merch page, along with the first instalment of the singles series and the recent Mixtape 5, as well as at dates on the band's ongoing North American tour.
