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.

Florida’s You Blew It! have just announced that they will be releasing their latest EP on January 27, 2015. The EP will be titled Pioneer of Nothing and will be launched via Jade Tree Records.

On the release, singer and guitarist Tanner Jones commented:

It’s hard to put into words the almost insurmountable amount of influence Jade Tree and its catalogue have had on this band. We tried writing songs that felt more liberating, expansive, and dynamic in a way that we hoped would do their oeuvre justice and we’re very happy with the way it came out.

This will serve as a follow-up to the group’s latest EP, You Blue It, which features covers of five songs from Weezer’s classic 1994 debut The Blue Album and was released in July via Topshelf Records.

You Blew It! have also announced their first North American headlining tour, on which they will be supported by Tiny Moving Parts, Rozwell Kid, and Sorority Noise. You can check out when they’re coming to your neck of the woods on the flyer above.

Glocca Morra have split up (2008 – 2014)

Posted by jaystone on Wednesday, November 26, 2014 at 4:26 PM (PST)

Sad news from the Glocca Morra camp. Seems the Philly-based indie-punk four-piece is no longer.

Here’s the hot-off-the-presses statement from the band, via their Facebook page:

hello everyone and happy holidays. it’s a stressful time for all of us, as a country and as humans. in light of America’s most recent case of our failing justice system I feel that now would be as good a time as any to tell you that we are ending glocca morra. 

my first draft of this post became too autobiographical and contrived. I wanted to talk about our history but it started to become a history lesson that even I got bored of writing. 

this band was very important to me and definitely dictated my formative years. we haven’t really done anything in the past two years save for two short tours with Owls and Joyce Manor. we just kind of stopped. but I don’t want to burn out quietly or remain a band that plays a local show once or twice a year. 

so we’re going to do one final tour in april. I’m not sure when or where yet but this will give us enough time to get our shit together and press some records, etc. 

this is not an angry ending. it’s an amicable departure. we all remain friends and are all still extremely active in our contributions to art. do some research and you will eventually find all of our related projects. 

so thanks everyone. much love to all who have supported us, booked us, put our records out, housed us, etc. 

see ya soon,

zack.

Rest in peace, Glocca Morra. You’ll be missed.
