Fucked Up Announces "Year Of The Snake" Release

Long-running Canadian hardcore punk unit Fucked Up will drop the eighth installment of the Zodiac Series with "Year Of The Snake" next month via Tankcrimes. Fusing all the prime tenets of rock, punk, metal, and psychedia into a comprehensive and imposing opus of unyielding enormity, Fucked Up is sonically and conceptually devouring.

Fucked Up's latest entry into the Zodiac Series documents the journey of self-care and opening awareness through the use of psychedelics and medicinal plants. The twenty-four-minute epic title track follows the narrative of a trip with strange instrumentation and electronics held together with the bands own loose interpretation of hardcore punk.

"Year Of The Snake" will come available on CD, digital, and various limited vinyl formats on March 24th via Tanckcrimes and features cover art cover art by illustrator Fred Tomaselli (They Might Be Giants, Phish, Elysian Fields et al) as well as bonus track, "Year Of The Snake, Remix," by techno noise project Container.

2. Passacaglia (6:05)
3. Year Of The Snake (Container Remix) (5:11) **
