Fucked Up To Release Holiday/Charity 7"

In honor of the season, Fucked Up has recorded a special festive single. The A-side features a brand new holiday themed song by Fucked Up. Clocking in at four minutes, this ripper is about the birth of our lord and savior: David Eliade and serves as a taste of what is to come on Fucked Up's forthcoming LP, "The Chemistry Of Common Life," that will see the light of day next year.

The B-side of the record boasts a very special Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa song which sees Fucked Up collaborating with:

James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem)
Cole (Black Lips)
Davey Havok (AFI)
Kevin Peterson (What's Your Rupture?)
Faris Rotter (The Horrors)
Mike Fellows (Rites Of Spring)
Matt Sweeney (Chavez/ Zwan)
Dave One (Chromeo)
Jacob Thiele (The Faint)
Morag and Ursula
Jay Reatard
Dan Romano (Attack In Black)
Trevor Keith (Face To Face)
Jason Green (Panthers/ Orchid)
Jerry A. (Poison Idea)
Shenae Grimes (Degrassi: The Next Generation)
Scott Vogel (Terror)
Nelly Furtado

This is not a joke. All of these people (willingly) participated in the recording of this song. This is probably the most bizarre collaboration that they have/ will ever do. The recording time for this record was generously donated by Chris Hegge of Audiolab Studios Toronto.

The record comes gift wrapped in special Fucked Up wrapping paper, graciously donated by Simone (sometime member of Fucked Up) of Punchclock and it will be limited (there is no way we are going to wrap too many of these).

All proceeds from the sale of this record will go directly to George Herman House, a transitional housing and life skills program that supports women who are living with mental health issues in Toronto.
