They should probably just give up now tbh.

Though I did write them off after Glass Boys and both Dose Your Dreams and Year Of The Horse were good so maybe they have something left in them.

It’s going to be the new album in full again pretty much yes? Not sure about that

Milton Keynes! What a time to be alive.

Pretty mad how a band that can be so explosive and inventive are happy to also put out shit loads of completely bland and nothingy songs

Hmmm…the name suggests they’ve done the same songwriting gimmick again?

Thats what Im guessing aye

Like springtime in the Canadian prairies, Another Day is fleeting but buzzes with activity—it’s Fucked Up’s shortest album ever and arrives the most quickly after a previous album by the band. One Day emerged in the winter of 2023. Each band member separately recorded all their respective parts in a single, presumably rather cold day. It’s a powerful document of a band known for elaborate, dense albums and (over-?) thinking everything through, instead letting go and trusting that they’d made the most of the time they assigned themselves to work with and against.

If One Day bore any traces of icy unfamiliarity, they’ve thawed for the upbeat, energized and optimistic Another Day, whose songs were recorded in the spring of 2023. If you compare the track listings and listen to what is being sung, you realize that in sequence and in a thematic sense lyrically, the two albums are absolutely connected in a purposefully contextual and rather brilliant narrative alignment. So, like any parts of a bold series, they’re not the same, but they’re not completely different.

Absolutely not interested in this. Last album was just boring.
