”Fucked Up are a punk band. They were a punk band when they started in Toronto more than a decade ago, and they’ve remained a punk band even as they’ve ascended to career heights that their younger selves never could’ve imagined.” - Matador Records
”Don’t let the name, or the sound, or the appearance of the band fool you. Fucked Up is about embracing life, about unity, and about smiles more than it is about some of the dark content its songs contain.” - Consequence of Sound
Fucked Up are a hardcore punk band from Toronto. They won the Polaris Music Prize (Canada’s highest merit-based award for a recorded album) in 2009 and almost won it again in 2012. Their highly cathartic live shows have been praised for being no-holds-barred celebrations of moshing, screaming and celebrating life. They’re a live band you can count on - and we’re always stoked when they roll through our town.
