News Bands Fucked Up Drop New Song, Debate Stars on Twitter About Arizona

Fucked Up Drop New Song, Debate Stars on Twitter About Arizona

Posted April 28, 2010, 2:19 p.m. in Bands by Jon E.

Last Friday, Toronto punk destroyers Fucked Up posted a brand new track called "Here Lies Are" to their Looking for Gold blog, along with what sure looks like cover art, all without comment. Turns out the track comes from a forthcoming split 12" with Norwegian noise-poppers Serena-Maneesh, due for release on Norway's Best of Both Worlds label.

In other Fucked Up news, as you may have heard, frontman Damian Abraham spent a pretty good chunk of yesterday on his Twitter, debating fellow Canadian indie types Stars about the proper response to Arizona's massively controversial and possibly unconstitutional new immigration law.

When Stars announced that they'd boycott the state until the law is repealed, Abraham responded that there were better ways to express dissent. Later, he elaborated: "Why not keep playing Arizona, using the shows as an opportunity to engage the people there to get involved (they are the ones after all capable to affecting change in the state), use press ops before the show to talk about what is going on in the local media, donate some of the guarantee to or other such groups that work on the front lines fighting draconian immigration laws.... hell even get them to table at the show."

You can follow the conversation on the respective Twitters of Abraham and Stars.
