Fucked Up Touring With Against Me, Cloud Nothings?

This blog has gone long enough without any tour news, so who better to bring it back than a the current kings of the live show, Fucked Up. Of course, the band is almost always touring, but that's not any less of a reason to care. The band will be coming to both Europe and the United States this Friday, and will be bringing along everyone's least favorite major label punk band Against Me on the majority of their European tour dates. The biggest surprise though is that lo-fi rockers Cloud Nothings will be opening for the band on four of their East coast tour dates. Congrats to Dylan and his friends for making it this far in a year. A date with The Coathangers and another with Public Enemy(!) will also be happening as well. Do I even need to explain why you should do whatever is in your power to get to a show?

In other Fucked Up news, the band will be releasing their next zodiac 12 inch single "Year Of The Ox" on September 28 with Merge Records. The 13 minute epic guest stars Zola Jesus leader Nika Roza Danilova as well as a Toronto string quartet. Its B-Side "Solomon's Song" is also inspired by and at tribute to Twilight. Yes, the vampire movie. The weirdness of it all can be heard here, at the ever wonderful/annoy Pitchfork.
