Subversive Toronto punk outfit Fucked Up have shared a new single, “Strix.”
Last year, Fucked Up shared their epic four-part collection, Year Of The Horse, and now they’re ready to follow it up with a 12-inch EP, Oberon, which is out on October 7th via Tankcrimes. In honour of the announcement of the new EP, they’ve previewed the collection with “Strix.”
The new track is named after a mythical medieval bird that eats human flesh. A strix is a dark omen, and you can really hear that energy on the new track. With noise-rock melodies and ripping riffs, the gritty tune is truly an adventure.
Listen to “Strix” below.

Since the release of Year of the Horse, Fucked Up has shared a 10th anniversary vinyl edition of David Comes To Life. They also dropped a remastered reissue of 2003’s Epics in Minutes, which was treated to a vinyl release for the first time ever. The collection brings together songs from their early (prior to 2004) 7-inch vinyls and cassettes. Get ready for some remastered versions of tracks like “Police,” “Baiting The Public I,” and “What Could’ve Been.”
Most recently, they shared a B-Sides and rarities album called Do All Words Can Do. The release arrived alongside the David Comes To Life reissue, and it features rarities and B-sides from that era. David Comes to Life clocks in at a whopping 78-minutes, but somehow, they had even more music to share. The genre-bending psychedelic-hardcore punk record truly made waves upon its release. Now, we’re about to be blessed with even more.
