Year Of The Tiger – 12″ single out February 20th

Since 2006, F**ked Up have been releasing an annual 12” single on each Chinese New Year. Named after the beasts of the Chinese Zodiac, the sprawling 10-15 minute-long epics have been among the band’s most acclaimed material and were the first releases to expose them to non-punk audiences.

Year Of The Tiger is an anthemic progressive rock masterpiece featuring guests Jim Jarmusch, Annie-Claude Deschênes and Austra. It was produced by Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells) during the sessions for last year’s critically acclaimed rock opera David Comes To Life. The 15-minute long A-side features the band’s familiar layers of guitar and roaring vocals, taken to a new level with the addition of piano, Jarmusch’s dark recitations and Deschênes’s gorgeous crescendos, in this menacing but uplifting story about the predation of predators whereas B-side “ONNO” is a 22-minute long palindromic drone.

A portion from the sale of each record will be donated to the Save The Tiger fund.
