Fuck The Facts has issued the following announcement about releasing the "Live in Whitby" DVD:
"So it seems that by releasing the 'Live In Whitby' cassette & 'pay-what-you-want' download, we got the ball rolling on the completion of the video footage that was filmed that night by the promoter and his film crew.
"Awhile back I got an e-mail from the promoter of the Whitby show telling me that he had finished footage and was putting some DVDs together. Flash forward a few weeks later and a small box of DVDs showed up. So we're making these available to you guys.
"The DVD includes interviews, as well as full sets from every band that played that night; Fuck The Facts,Heaps Of Dead, The Unborn Dead & F.A.T.O. I've posted a small clip of us playing 'Everyone Is Robbing The Dead' from the DVD below. If you want to order the DVD, go here. We have a very limited amount of these, so don't wait too long if you want one. ..and as always you can still download the 'Live In Whitby' recording for free (or pay what you want) here.
"Thanks to Stefano Manera for getting this together, all the bands and people involved with that night and especially our late great friend Michal Majewski for the awesome poster and great times through out the years." More...
Fuck The Facts has issued the following update about the band's upcoming full-length album:
"Our upcoming full length album 'Die Miserable' is currently being mixed in Winnipeg by our good buddy Craig Boychuk. Craig has been kind enough to post insight on how the mix is coming along, as well as share some wisdom with all you upcoming and coming recording engineers. You can read his 'Die Miserable' mix report, ask him questions and interact with him here.
"Meanwhile, this week we're back in our ghetto little home studio recording tracks for a bonus EP that will only be available with the vinyl version of our upcoming full length album; ‘Die Miserable’. The EP will feature 4 new songs not available on the album as well as a re-recorded version of the song ‘Unburden.' Check out this video of our first day in the studio tracking drums."
Canadian grind metal act Fuck the Facts has revealed the title to its forthcoming studio album. The title of the band's ninth album has been set as "Die Miserable" and will be issued in early 2011 through Relapse Records. Guitarist and founding member Topon Das commented by saying:
"Back in January we put together a little home studio and spent the month tracking a majority of what will be our next full-length album. Everything was shelved while we went on various tours, released our 'Unnamed' 7" EP and then 'Disgorge Mexico: The DVD'. But now having all of that out of the way, we are recording the finishing touches of this new album which we have aptly titled 'Die Miserable' after the feeling I have every time I need to write a quote about a new album. Mixing will be handled by our longtime friend (a.k.a. sucker) Craig Boychuk. He's pretty much had his hands and ears on almost everything we've recorded over the last few years, so we feel confident that he won't totally fuck it up. We're not very good at rushing out our full-lengths, so we're thinking this should see the light of day in the spring of 2011."
Fuck The Facts has posted a video clip online of the song "The Storm," which is take from the band's "Disgorge Mexico" live DVD. The footage can be viewed below.
Ottawa , Ontario grind metal outfit Fuck the Facts has announced the addition of Johnny Ibay to the band as its new permanent guitarist. Johnny Ibay has been associated with the band since 2008 taking on the role as a session member.
Fuck the Facts guitarst and founding member Topon Das commented by saying:
"After touring the world with us for the past two and a half years, we finally welcome Johnny 'Beige' Ibay into the Fuck the Facts family the only way we know how. Welcome home, Beige. We couldn't find anyone better in the past three years, so we're gonna keep ya, buddy."

Fuck the Facts has issued the following announcement about the band's final tour dates for the year:
"In a week will be heading out on what will be our final tour of 2010. A quick run through the Canadian Maritimes and a couple of US dates in Philly & New York to end it all off. Afterward, we’ll be coming back home to finally finish our next full length album which we started recording at the beginning of this year and hopefully have a brand new record out in early 2011.
"But before that we’re leaving you with one final release for this year. Back on April 11th 2009 we played a show in Whitby, Ontario. The show was recorded by our friend Dave Sheldon and a few songs were supposed to be released on some sort of DVD. Nothing ever seemed to come from it, so we asked Dave to send us what he recorded. He mixed and mastered it, and we were surprised by how good it sounded. So we have decided to release this recording as a free (or pay what you want) download as well as a cassette limited to only 50 copies."

Fuck The Facts has issued the following announcement about the release date of the "Disgorge Mexico" DVD:
"I’m happy to say that we will finally be releasing ‘Disgorge Mexico: The DVD’ on May 11th 2010, which comes in perfect timing with our upcoming May US tour. We decided to keep our mouths shut about this DVD until we were 100% sure that it would actually be seeing the light of day, since we ran into many delays and set backs along the way. As I type this I am surrounded by DVDs and DVD cases.
"Just like our ‘Unnamed’ 7" EP, this is a completely independent release. Limited to only 500 copies, the first 100 copies will include a bonus DVD with additional live footage, behind the scenes clips and more. Disgorge Mexico: The DVD, features 2 chapters: ‘Live Disgorge’ is our entire set from the ‘Disgorge Mexico’ CD release show on August 2nd 2008 in Hull, Quebec @ Le Petit Chicago. Not only is this the only time we ever played the entire album from start to finish, but the only time we played many of these songs live. The whole show was filmed with multiple cameras and then edited by Phil Pattison of Nictophobia Films.
"The second chapter is ‘Disgorge, Mexico: The Movie’. A film by David Hall of Hand Shake inc. (Today Is The Day, Jucifer, Sigh, Hail Of Bullets). Hall describes it as “a substance abuse art house riff on the destructive and volatile nature of love,” Disgorge, Mexico: The Movie is a violent, hallucinatory depiction of one woman’s strange journey, set to the soundtrack of Fuck The Facts’ Disgorge Mexico."
A teaser trailer for the DVD can also be viewed below. More...
