Canadian grind/metal unit FUCK THE FACTS has finished recording its new album, "Die Miserable", for a spring release via Relapse Records. The band self-recorded the CD, which will contain nine songs with a running time of around 40 minutes. The effort is currently being mixed by Craig Boychuk.
Commented FUCK THE FACTS' Topon Das: "Back in January we put together a little home studio and spent the month tracking a majority of what will be our next full-length album. Everything was shelved while we went on various tours, released our 'Unnamed' 7" EP and then 'Disgorge Mexico: The DVD'. But now having all of that out of the way, we are recording the finishing touches of this new album which we have aptly titled 'Die Miserable' after the feeling I have every time I need to write a quote about a new album. Mixing will be handled by our longtime friend (a.k.a. sucker) Craig Boychuk. He's pretty much had his hands and ears on almost everything we've recorded over the last few years, so we feel confident that he won't totally fuck it up. We're not very good at rushing out our full-lengths, so we're thinking this should see the light of day in the spring of 2011."
FUCK THE FACTS recently announced the addition of guitarist Johnny Ibay (PARTY TANK, DRUDGERY) to the group's ranks.
Ibay has been touring with FUCK THE FACTS as a session member since 2008 and is featured on the band's "Disgorge Mexico: The DVD", which was released independently earlier in the year.
FUCK THE FACTS' "Wake" video was created by the Copenhagen, Denmark-based director Michael Panduro (Siegfried Productions), who has previously worked with PSYOPUS and Denmark's indie pop band NO AND THE MAYBES. The song comes off the band's self-released "Unnamed" seven-inch EP.
"Disgorge Mexico: The DVD" features the entire set from the "Disgorge Mexico" CD-release show where the band played the album from start to finish for the first and only time. The whole show was filmed with multiple cameras and then edited by Phil Pattison of Nictophobia Films. The DVD also includes "Disgorge, Mexico: The Movie", a film by David Hall of Handshake Inc. (TODAY IS THE DAY, JUCIFER, SIGH, HAIL OF BULLETS). Hall describes it as "a substance abuse art house riff on the destructive and volatile nature of love."
"Disgorge, Mexico: The Movie" is a violent, hallucinatory depiction of one woman's strange journey, set to the soundtrack of FUCK THE FACTS' "Disgorge Mexico".
"Disgorge Mexico: The DVD" is limited to 500 copies (first 100 copies come with a bonus disc) and like the band's recently released "Unnamed" seven-inch EP, is an exclusively independent release only available through the FUCK THE FACTS webstore.
