    It’s been four years since their last LP, but Fucked Up are officially back, and with double the songs. The Toronto hardcore punks are slated to release a new double album called Dose Your Dreams on October 5th.

    Spanning a generous 18 tracks, the Glass Boys follow-up will arrive through their new label home at Merge Records. Their previous three, including 2008’s Polaris Prize-winning The Chemistry of Common Life, were put out via Matador Records.

    “This record took two years to make. It has 18 songs, its long, its angry and its beautiful and all that shit,” Fucked Up noted on Facebook. Arcade Fire member and violinist Owen Pallett shared more about the album in a bio he penned for the band:

    “I was sent an unfinished version of Dose Your Dreams so that I might contribute string parts. I couldn’t stop listening to the rough mixes I received. A friend asked me how the record was. I replied, “My God, Fucked Up have made their [Primal Scream’s] Screamadelica.

    And psych-rock-groove it is. The drums mixed wide, propensity for drones, for delay pedal, for repetition, groove. The politics and aesthetics of hardcore married to an ‘open format’ approach to genre. Elements of doo-wop, krautrock, groove, digital hardcore.”


    For a taste of Fucked Up’s version of Screamadelica, hear the rowdy and rallying lead single, aptly titled “Raise Your Voice Joyce”.
