Canadian hardcore punk innovators Fucked Up are bringing their explosive live energy to Aotearoa this October, to play two absolutely unmissable headline events in Auckland and Wellington. Formed all the way back in 2001, the massively prolific group's back catalogue encompasses six studio albums including 2018's Dose Your Dreams, along with countless singles, demo releases, compilation appearances and even a soundtrack record (2016's Zanzibar), all pushing beyond the sonic boundaries of conventional punk rock. Equally famed for the unconstrained physical antics of frontman Damian Abraham, Fucked Up are a band to be experienced in the flesh. Don't miss them at the dates below...

UnderTheRadar is thrilled to present...

Press release:

It's live where one can truly see that Fucked Up are one of the most momentous, heavy lifting acts around. Part of the discovery is that such a ferocious wave of sound and relentless energy comes from a band that, once you get past the sight of their frantic and often shirtless frontman, could easily pass for a handful of well-mannered uni-students. The other part is that aforementioned charismatic and hirsute frontman Damian Abraham is known for his penchant for crowd surfing and headbutting things. Anything actually: Beer glasses, microphones, walls, MTV Bathrooms and more and is often seen leaving the stage covered in his own blood.

Chicks that Scream invite you to enjoy one of their bucket-list bands this October with two very special New Zealand shows from one of the best free-thinking bands to emerge from the punk rock underground.

Six-piece Canadian outfit Fucked Up are a musical act which defies classification, whilst firmly keeping the hardcore punk rock dream alive.

The group has been expanding the horizons of hardcore, the perspective of punk and the range of (art) rock for the past 13 years. Starting with their 2006 debut Hidden World, which was followed in 2008 by the Polaris Music Prize-winning The Chemistry Of Modern Life, 2011's 4-act rock-opera David Comes To Life (where we first meet "David Eliade"), and 2014s' Glass Boys which saw the band take another evolutionary punk-rock leap without leaving anyone pining for the past.

Their latest, the 18 track opus Dose Your Dreams is their fifth full-length studio release (not counting numerous collaborations, compilation albums, soundtrack albums, their Zodiac series and other 12"s, singles, EPs, demos, mixtapes, splits, and tapes). Dose Your Dreams continues the story of David Eliade (the character in the song 'David Comes to Life' from the album David Comes To Life). It features contributions from Jennifer Castle, J Mascis, Owen Pallett, and Lido Pimienta.
