Today, Fucked Up’s Year of the Ox is available in stores on limited-edition 12-inch and digital download.
Recorded over 6 months by Jon Drew at Giant Studios in Toronto, Year of the Ox is the band’s fourth record in a continuing 12 year cycle and adds to its evolving retinue of guest musicians. The patient and building Year of the Ox features Nika Rosa Danilova of Zola Jesus for a guest vocal passage and Toronto’s string quartet, New Strings Old Puppets. The b-side “Solomon’s Song”, a gothic vampire love tribute to Twilight, features a 5 minute saxophone solo from Aerin Fogel of the Bitters and heavy synthing from Trust.
