Fucked Up’s sound has solely gotten greater, extra hard-charging, with even denser thickets of melody. With One Day, the band delivers one of the crucial energising and complex albums of their whole profession, a massive-sounding report that arrives in deceptively small confines. The Canadian hardcore legends have been identified for his or her epic scale previously, from towering idea albums to 12-hour performances—so it is perhaps a shock that Fucked Up’s sixth studio album is their shortest to this point, written and recorded within the confines of 1 literal day (therefore the title).
The thought to jot down and report an album in at some point got here to thoughts for Haliechuk within the closing months of 2019, and it kinds the ideological and structural spine of One Day. Haliechuk obtained himself right into a studio and proceeded to jot down and report the report’s ten tracks over three eight-hour periods, 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 an entire adhered to the 24-hour rule through the inventive course of, together with drummer Jonah Falco and vocalist Damian Abraham (who returned to contributing lyrics as properly for the primary time since 2014’s Glass Boys).
“It virtually felt prefer it is perhaps 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 wish to say to associates who aren’t right here anymore? What do I wish to say to myself? There was a number of interior reflection happening, and after retreating into the fantasy world with Yr 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 approach 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 prime of their recreation, making music that’s assured to final a lifetime and past.
