Fucked Up Return with 'Year of the Horse'
Their latest "Zodiac Series" entry is dedicated to late Iron Age guitarist Wade Allison and Power Trip vocalist Riley Gale
The 19-minute "Year of the Horse - Act One" arrives dedicated to dedicated to Iron Age guitarist Wade Allison and Power Trip vocalist Riley Gale, the Texas thrash metal artists who passed away weeks apart last year.
On Twitter, Fucked Up note that Year of the Horse will remain exclusive to Bandcamp, while details of a physical release will be announced "in a while." Frontman Damian Abraham added that bandmates Mike Haliechuk and Jonah Falco began work on "Zodiac Series" entry five years ago.
Year of the Horse follows 2017's Year of the Snake. Last year, Fucked Up released two live albums: Rivoli and Live at CBGB's. Their most recent full-length remains 2018's Dose Your Dreams.
Last year also saw Falco and Haliechuk make their debut as Jade Hairpins.
Today @FUCKEDUP (and friends) released part 1 of "Year of the Horse". Mike and @jonahjonahfalco started on it 5 years ago and, it probably still wouldn't be done if the last year hadn't unfolded the way it did. I'm proud to be a part of it.https://t.co/SKuBiPqNLg— Damian Abraham (@leftfordamian) February 5, 2021
For now this is just living on @Bandcamp No spotify, no streaming. We will announce the physical in a while. For the next few months this will just be released as song and story, so please enjoy. Full lyrics are available with download— Fucked Up (@FUCKEDUP) February 5, 2021
