CURRENT: Fucked Up – “Paper the House”


I’m hardly the targeted audience for Fucked Up. While I’ve always been hesitant to embrace the hardcore genre, the first taste from Fucked Up’s upcoming Glass Boys is making me a believer. It helps that the band has something important to say, and it shines through in a burst of colors. Underneath lead vocalist Damian Abraham’s scorching, virulent screams lies a gorgeous, life-affirming musicality, which in less capable hands would never see the light of day. The further along Fucked Up get in their discography, they bridge the gap between soaring melodies and Abraham’s earth-shattering vocals, finding common ground I hardly knew existed.
