Toronto, Ontario, Canada punk rock band F*cked up are set to release a rock opera album entitled “David Comes to Life” on June 7, 2011.
The album features 18 songs and has a running-time of 78 minutes which is quite lengthy for a punk album which is why the band decided to consider it a rock opera. On the band’s blog, the band stated that “We decided the only thing more ridiculous than putting out a 73-minute punk record was to just say fuck it and do a musical.”
You can download the first single from the album, ‘The Other Shoe’, from Matadorrecords.com for free. It is the first of four singles from the album that will be available before the full record is released.
The band stated that they came up with the idea for the album in 2006 and have been working on the concept for the past five years.Canadian Music News
