Fuck The Facts has issued the following announcement about recruiting a new bassist:
"Those of you that have seen us live over the past couple of years might have noticed some tall, lanky, oddly pale with bad tattoos, creepy looking dude playing bass for us. Well, it turns out he’s wasn’t leaving anytime soon so we decided to make this a more permanent arrangement.
"His name is Marc ‘Borgoroth’ Bourgon (some of you might know him from his old band TUGNUT) and he’s been playing with us since December 2007, he also played bass on the split w/ Leng Tch’e were we went all ‘…And Justice For All’ and buried his tracks.
"We’ve known him for years even before he started jamming with us, and anyone that’s ever met him knows that he’s a good dude. But most importantly he made this awesome video audition tape and that’s what sealed the deal."

Canada's FUCK THE FACTS have announced a number of European tour dates in support of their 2008 release "Disgorge Mexico." Fuck the facts will join up with label mates ANTIGAMA from Poland and the Dutch Grind-core band Dr. Doom for this tour.
Guitarist Topon comments to the tour: "Fucking Europe, eh? Who ever thought it would have actually happened? Well we did, but I guess we never expected it to take so long. It's been almost 10 years since I released the first Fuck The Facts cassette, and 7 years since the band started playing shows. Some of the first people that ever supported Fuck The Facts by releasing split tapes and putting FTF on comps were from Italy, France & Germany. It's crazy that after all these years I might get to finally meet some of these people and lots of you that have written us over the years…….." "It's definitely gonna be a different experience, and we will do our best to make sure we can "Disgorge" Europe with the same viciousness that we have North America. See you all soon." More...
Chicago-based noise machines, WINTERS IN OSAKA, have completed work on their next full-length.

Mixed and mastered by studio member Greg Ratajczak, Molded to Crawl promises to deliver even more of the frightening brilliance found on past WINTERS IN OSAKA records. The album features appearances by: Rich Hoak (BRUTAL TRUTH, TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION), Topon Das (FUCK THE FACTS), DEATH AGONIES (aka THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE), Chris Dodge (DESPISE YOU, SPAZZ, EAST WEST BLAST TEST), John Hoffman (WEEKEND NACHOS), and Toney Vast Binder (HARPOON, 7000 DYING RATS).
