FTF invite you to ‘Die Miserable’

One of the records I’m most exciting hearing about this year is the new one from Canadian grinders Fuck the Facts. I feel like I’ve been hearing about “Die Miserable” for 14 years now, but I assume that’s the anticipation and isn’t grounded in fact. The assertion we base things on fact here at Meat Mead Metal would be one of folly.

But this afternoon comes news that the band’s ninth full-length finally will hit the shelves Oct. 11 via Relapse Records, who put out their last two efforts “Stigmata High Five” and “Disgorge Mexico” (that eventually got movie treatment by way of filmmaker David Hall). It’s not as if the band has been silent since putting out “Disgorge Mexico” in 2008, as they’ve toured relentlessly and even put out a handful of smaller efforts, including “The Wreaking” and “Unnamed” EPs, a “St. Jean Baptiste 2010” live piece, as well as a nine-track “Live at Whitby” document.  Along the way, they also celebrated their 10th anniversary and that, too, sparked another tour from these road warriors.

There’s no preorder info yet from the label, but likely that’ll be coming pretty shortly, as they already have the Brutal Truth stuff up, and that’s not out until Sept. 27. You can keep checking the Relapse shop link below if you’re an obsessive freak. Also below are, yes, more tour dates from these sleep-deprived, well-traveled, hard-working  maulers. Catch them if you can (or, basically, if you’re in the Maritimes).
