Hardcore heavyweights with a penchant for the experimental and aggression to boot

Canada’s best named hardcore band who has also written a rock opera is touring the US again in support of 2011’s “David Comes to Light,” an album conceptualized as a love story set in 1970s England. Fucked Up haven’t lost the ferocity of their earlier incarnations as more straightforward punk titans but have channeled their aggression into a creative expansion of the genre. Frontman Pink Eyes is still a beast, with stage presence to spare, and the juggernaut that is Fucked Up lumbers on.
