Although I question the soundness of touring the Northeast in the middle of winter, One Fell Swoop  will do just that, as they head out from their hometown of Yonkers, NY, and hit the cities listed below.  Let’s hope they don’t hit any blizzards.

Fucked Up (hardcore) streams new track, “Voce Rubata”

Posted by GinaVenz on Friday, December 19, 2014 at 12:30 PM (PST)

Hardcore/progressive rockers Fucked Up are streaming a new track, and you can check it out below.

This song may not be for the average hardcore fan:  it is a slow, brooding piano instrumental plus vocals from the Canadian Opera Company.  Band member Jonah Falco sums it up this way:

We were thrilled to work with singers from the COC, but when we had a chance to talk to them and get into the rehearsal space, we realized that we had less than 24 hours. We went in with a vague idea, tore it up, started again. We didn’t want to waste those singers in a half-baked punk song. Mike, our guitar player, came up with the shell of an idea of a singer who was lured from her art by the illusion of freedom, promised by a nefarious stranger. We were interested in creating a piece that seized the musical opportunity rather than addressing one particular moment, but the frame of the story–a person who is free leaving the structures in which they’ve grown to do something new only to have that illusion shattered by reality–is a very old narrative, and one that we see echoed throughout stories in this or any other year.

The band released it on their Canadian record label, Arts & Crafts.
