NEWS: Fucked Up announce new album ‘One Day’ and release title track and video

Canadian hardcore legends Fucked Up have announced their new album One Day which is set for release on 27 January 2023 via Merge Records. In addition, they have released the title track and accompanying video.  This their sixth studio album is also their shortest to date. Intriguingly it was written and recorded in the confines of one literal day (hence the title). By all accounts the band’s sound has only gotten bigger with even denser thickets of melody.

The title track ‘One Day‘ layers guitar notes and riffs to create a power-pop tune of epic proportions. The accompanying video was directed by Colin Medley, who says:

“When I first heard ‘One Day’, it sounded to me like a song about two people overcoming all odds to find love and happiness with each other. Right away I knew that I wanted to tell the story through two dancers. I decided to shoot at the Great Hall in Toronto the day Fucked Up were scheduled to play a show there. Knowing that the building would be mostly quiet during the day leading up to the concert, I plotted out the basic structure of the video, deciding that it would end with the two characters searching for each other in the crowd as Fucked Up performed on stage.” 

“This record is about how we see time passing in our lives,” drummer Jonah Falco continues while discussing how the emotional and technical approaches of ‘One Day ‘ collided. “It represents the realisation of what Fucked Up’s song writing process has always been, which is the genesis of an idea from one person spread to other members. All of the development happened spontaneously with this album, which meant no time to second-guess. You had to be confident.”
