The Canadian hardcore legends have been identified for his or her epic scale up to now, from towering idea albums to 12-hour performances—so it is likely to be a shock that Fucked Up’s sixth studio album is their shortest thus far, written and recorded within the confines of 1 literal day (therefore the title).

The concept to put in writing and report an album in sooner or later got here to thoughts for Haliechuk within the closing months of 2019, and it types the ideological and structural spine of One Day. Haliechuk obtained himself right into a studio and proceeded to put in writing and report the report’s ten tracks over three eight-hour classes, reconnecting with the core of his and the band’s songwriting essence within the course of. Although work on One Day was accomplished remotely, Fucked Up as a complete adhered to the 24-hour rule throughout the artistic course of, together with drummer Jonah Falco and vocalist Damian Abraham (who returned to contributing lyrics as effectively for the primary time since 2014’s Glass Boys).

“It virtually felt prefer it is likely to be the final time I’d ever get to report vocals for something,” Abraham says of the stakes he felt whereas placing his half to tape, earlier than reflecting on how he approached the lyrical course of: “What do I need to say to buddies who aren’t right here anymore? What do I need to say to myself? There was a variety of inside reflection happening, and after retreating into the fantasy world with 12 months of the Horse, this report is like we’re returning to actual life.”

The ensuing One Day is a report that sounds full-bodied and rapid, with music that burns brutally and passionately in a means that solely Fucked Up can evoke. The guitars sound like ziggurats reaching to the sky, reaching dizzying ranges of melodic interaction whereas all the time sustaining a tuneful readability. It’s an plain work of confidence from a band that continues to function on the high of their sport, making music that’s assured to final a lifetime and past.
