Oberon, the latest EP from long-running Canadian hardcore/punk collective FUCKED UP, is out NOW via Tankcrimes!

Named for the king of the fairies, as depicted in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s DreamOberon serves as a pummeling curveball from the collective channeling the world of hardcore that birthed them. Oberon seethes with despotic and horrendously sludgy riffs exploding in octaves lower than Hades, crashing against hellish bellowing all while the rhythm section heaves at a pace that only Noothgrush, Crossed Out, Kiss It Goodbye, and Bloodlet would tread upon. Topped off with an absolutely despicable cover of Saint-Saens’ “The Aquarium,” Oberon is the mythologically psychedelic sludge record you never thought FUCKED UP would make. Four tracks of pure audio excretion.

FUCKED UP’s Oberon is available on limited edition LP and digitally. Find ordering options at the Tankcrimes webshop HERE or Bandcamp HERE where the record can be streamed in full.

FUCKED UP stands among the most prolific hardcore punk bands of our generation. Since their 2001 inception, they’ve challenged listeners with thoughtful artful chaos and a seemingly limitless drive for musical experimentation. Because of this, they’ve also become a record collector’s worst nightmare releasing over eighty recordings and collaborations on countless labels that include Deranged, Havoc, Tankcrimes, Deathwish, Matador, Jade Tree, and more. The band won the 2009 Polaris Music Prize for their second studio album, The Chemistry Of Common Life among countless other accolades over the last two decades.
