FUCK THE FACTS Drop Video Via Metal Injection; Canadian Ritual Tour With The Black Dahlia Murder, Exhumed Nears

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

The brand new video from Ottawa-based grindcore technicians has been released today.

Constructed for the song “Drift” — the scathing opening track from FTF’s late 2011-released eighth LP, Die Miserable — the imaginative, creepy video was created by David Hall of Handshake Inc., known for previous videos he’s directed for Today is the Day, Brutal Truth, Hail of Bullets, Jucifer, Bastard Noise, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Sigh, Rwake and tons more, in addition to previous work with FUCK THE FACTS.

A full director’s statement on the visualization/creation of the video joins the visual mayhem VIA METAL INJECTION.

Following their month-long European tour which wrapped up in early April, FUCK THE FACTS are set to storm their native country on the Canadian Ritual Tour 2012. Beginning late next week the tour will invade twenty cities across Canada and the upper US — headlined by Detroit crushers The Black Dahlia Murder, with support from FUCK THE FACTS and their Relapse labelmates Cali gore kings Exhumed — with FTF headlining several additional dates along the route.

Die Miserable’s entire eight tracks of annihilating socio-political grind-metal mayhem can be streamed via the band’s official Bandcamp page.

“…the most disparate, complex, and infectious album of the band’s 12 year existence… the band completely defies categorization.” Teufel’s Tomb

“I seriously hope the band members are all really proud of what they’ve achieved, ’cause they have definitely taken shit to a whole new level.” – MetalSucks

“…definitely sounds like a Fuck The Facts release but like no record prior; it’s their unwavering eclectism that has enabled this Canadian band to always keep it interesting.” – Brooklyn Vegan

FUCK THE FACTS: New Track From Upcoming Full-Length Now Streaming

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Quebec’s bastardized grinders FUCK THE FACTS have recently posted the track “A Coward’s Existence” from the band’s upcoming album, Die Miserable.

Stated FTF guitarist Topon Das about the theme behind the song and the album as a whole: “Musically, this is the song I feel embodies almost all the elements of the album. Some of the other songs on the album seem to lean more towards the fast and crazy elements and some more towards the melodic, but on ‘A Coward’s Existence,’ I feel like we really were able to make it all work together. The song is from the point of view of someone who doesn’t take any chances in life, because of fear of failure, ridicule… someone that just waits and hopes for fate to make things happen for them, and before they know it, their time is up and they never got to do all things they wish they had. This is pretty much the basis of the album title Die Miserable. If we spend all our time worrying about money, what other people will do or think, if we’re good enough to accomplish the things we want to do, that eventually it ends with regret and a void that was never filled because we were to afraid to live the life was always wanted to.”

Check out the scorching “A Coward’s Existence” at FUCK THE FACTS‘ Bandcamp page HERE.

A live version of the song filmed at The Cake Shop in NYC as part of FUCK THE FACTS‘ 10-year anniversary can be viewed HERE, and the band have also posted an in-studio video of the track that can be viewed HERE.

Set for release in North America via Relapse Records on October 11th, Die Miserable was recorded between tours at their own home studio. Featuring over 35 minutes of FUCK THE FACTS‘ scorching blend of socio-politically-charged grind, hardcore and metal fans worldwide have embraced for the past decade, the album showcases some of the finest work the band has embodied to date.

1. Drift
2. Cold Hearted
3. Lifeless
4. Census Blank
