‘GLASS BOYS’ IS OUT NOW, WATCH MINI-DOC FEATURING MANY FAMILIAR FACES

This week will be the three year anniversary of David Comes to Life, and with that marker, Fucked Up today release the life-affirming and personal glimpse into how far the band has come with ‘Glass Boys‘. Two versions of the record are available for your pleasure. Check out the 1/2 speed drums on ‘Slow Boys’ (available as a bonus LP w/ early pressings of ‘Glass Boys’).

To celebrate this release, we have a few new things from the band for you today. Watch without much comment, a mini-documentary directed by Andy Capper and Scott Pierce, featuring many familiar faces:

Official video for “Sun Glass” (also directed by Andy Capper)

The band have also put together a playlist (the first of many to come) titled ‘Other Side of the Looking Glass Boys’ on Rdio. You can listen to that HERE. Here is what Jonah Falco had to say about the playlist:

“Mostly for these mixes i’ve tried to find songs which are equivalent to the musical thematics on the record more than the lyrical ones. The notes, the feels, the registers, and the sensations. But the good thing about the eternity of pop culture is that usually when guided in certain directions culturally, the brain tends to mine the same emotions and conclusions throughout the ages. This doesn’t have anything to do with being unimaginative, but more to do with the often vast ideological unity of rock and roll.

Glass Boys, vaguely distilled, is a record about looking back while trying to move forward. All of this music is from the past, but you should listen to it in the present and think of it as contemporary. If you’re patient enough to want to pay close attention, I think you’ll find a few cheeky similarities between grooves, riffs, and themes. If not, you’ve still got ten reasons to dance.”

‘Glass Boys’ is available now at your local record store, or other options below:

WATCH: EMA + THE CREATORS PROJECT

“I didn’t set out to try and make a topical record about the internet and technology. It felt really taboo and weird and I felt embarrassed about it, but it was also this thing that was so obviously prevalent in my life and in everyone else’s life that I can’t just pretend that it doesn’t exist and write a love song about driving in a car or something.”

The Creators Project sat down with Erika M. Anderson and Leif Shackelford of EMA to delve into the writing and recording of The Future’s Void. Read more here and watch the revealing video piece below:
