Canadian punks prepare 12 inch

Furiously ambitious Canadian hardcore group Fucked Up are set to release a 12 inch version of their track 'Year Of The Rat'.

With the Chinese calendar clicking round to the year of the Ox, what better time than Fucked Up to release a new twelve inch? Last year's album 'The Chemistry Of Common Life' was a sensational release, a ground-breaking record loved by many.

New York label What's Your Rupture? will release the new twelve inch single, which contains album track 'Year Of The Rat' backed by the song 'First Born'.

'Year Of The Rat' is a pile driving burst of energy that runs for an astonishing eleven minutes. Coming after a series of singles relating to years ('Year Of The Pig' etc) it is great taster of Fucked Up before they head to these shores for the Shred Yr Face 2 tour.

Coming soon, the band will be joined by Rolo Tomassi and The Bronx for a tour that will burn ears and blow minds in equal amounts.

Fucked Up will release new twelve inch single 'Year Of The Rat' on March 24th.
