Back in June, Fucked Up released their excellent, genre-pushing fourth album, Glass Boys. Now, the Toronto-based hardcore collective has announced a series of 7-inches featuring several non-album singles, which will be released over the course of the summer.
The first installment features two new tracks: for the A-side, a pulverizing blitzkrieg entitled “Blink”, and its accompanying B-side, the more rollicking, slightly uplifting “The Way We Did”. Listen to both tracks below.
“These two songs we recorded during the Glass Boys sessions and maybe should’ve made the record because they are really good,” the band wrote on Facebook. “The songs are about subcultures and growing up around the punk scenes we did in Toronto. On the cover of the record is a picture of Will Munro, who left us way too soon.”
