Fucked Up – Glass Boys


Toronto’s Fucked Up continue to take punk to the next level with their latest release Glass Boys.

With a deceivingly delicate album title, Glass Boys is anything but fragile. Opening with a jack-in-the-box tease, “Echo Boomers” suddenly slams into a loud and rowdy punk track that sets the pace for the rest of the album.

Damian Abraham (a.k.a. Father Damian/ Pink Eyes) screams his way through the album, adding an extra level of intensity, alongside the never-slowing-down drumming of Johna Falco (a.k.a. Guinea Beat/ Mr. Jo).

Comparable to the likes of the Flatliners, Cancer Bats and Alexisonfire (sans Dallas Green), the album combines grungy-punk vocals and up-beat alternative guitar riffs and melodies (“Warm Change” is an example, or “Paper the House, which features an awesome dance drum intro).

Be prepared to channel your inner punk-rocker, and don’t be surprised if you feel the urge to trash your bedroom – after listening to the album, it’ll be worth it.

P.s. May we never forget their October 9, 2008 apperance on MTV Live. The men’s washroom would never the be same.
