Fucked Up Gather Up Archival Releases on Newly Launched Website
Published Aug 15, 2013After years of purposefully keeping their online presence next to nil, Toronto hardcore act Fucked Up just launched their very first website. True, the group had maintained a blog to deliver news and the odd rant, but their new Fuckedup.cc URL hosts a butt load of digital ephemera collected over the last decade.
"After playing almost 750 shows and releasing over 60 records we've finally decided to do something that most bands now do before having ever played live or physically released anything — make a real website," the group joked in a statement. "At first, without a place on the internet that we called home, it felt mysterious, later just useless, and finally it just became a talking point. Now we realize that it's just become a pain in the ass."
For now, undoubtedly the main draw on the site is the Music section, where you'll find all of Fucked Up's mixtapes compiling live recordings, demo takes and more. Also up for grabs is Fucked Up's old yuletide number "Stars on 45." You can access them all here.
As you might imagine, the website also includes a detailed discography page outlining over 60 releases, as well as a show flyer database, academic writing about the band, listings for both upcoming concerts and shows played, and more. It also includes links to related projects like Career Suicide and MuchMusic's The Wedge, the latter of which being hosted by frontman Damian Abraham.
Sadly, while the website links to an online store, there doesn't appear to be an online order form for either of their eggy, calorie-stacked breakfast plates.
