Fucked Up always likes to do things differently.
We may be in the Year of the Dragon, but the Toronto band won’t let that affect their zodiac project. The project, which consists of singles named for years within the Chinese astrological calendar, heralded a new single, this time called “The Year of the Tiger,” a collaboration among the band, filmmaker Jim Jarmusch and Annie-Claude Deschênes from Duchess Says. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Panthera Save the Tiger Fund.
The band, whose lead singer was recently featured in Xtra, was also recently nominated for a Juno for Best Alternative Album. I am hoping they get asked to perform, as it’s always nice to see how audiences react to non-pop performers during the show.
