INTERVIEW FAQ

Hey everyone, it's new record season over here at FUHQ which means more INTERVIEWS. we take interviews from everyone, big press, small zines, feel free to get in touch if you want to talk to us, for an interview or anything else. For those of you working at magazines/blogs who want to avoid boilerplate, here is a handy FAQ we can just get out of the way so you don't have to rely on these q's;

ARE YOU EXCITED FOR YOUR NEW RECORD AND TO COME TO (name of city) ON TOUR?
yes
YOUR LAST RECORD WAS A BIG SUCCESS. HOW DID THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?
happy
YOUR LAST RECORD WAS ALSO FAIRLY CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED. DID THAT PUT PRESSURE ON YOU FOR THE NEW RECORD?
no
THIS NEW RECORD ISN'T A CONCEPT RECORD.
that isnt a question
WHY ISN'T THIS RECORD A CONCEPT RECORD?
we did a concept record last time.
DID YOU FEEL PRESSURE TO MAKE A CONCEPT RECORD, SINCE YOU DID THAT LAST TIME?
no
DID YOU GUYS HAVE TO HAVE A LOT OF DISCUSSIONS TOGETHER TO COME UP WITH THE CONCEPT OF THIS RECORD?
no, it isn't really a concept record
WHAT IS THIS RECORD ABOUT?
it's mostly about growing up in a band, and the challenges you face as a person and an artist and the things you deal with along the way.
WOULD YOU SAY THIS IS A PERSONAL RECORD?
yes
WOULD YOU SAY THIS IS YOUR MOST PERSONAL RECORD EVER?
probably yes
IS THE TITLE "GLASS BOYS" A REFERENCE TO THE STRONG FACADE YOU MUST PUT ON AS A GROWING ADULT, IN THE FACE OF THE INEVITABLE INTERNAL FRAGILITY YOU DEVELOP AS A RESULT OF THIS GROWTH?
yes, to paraphrase.
YOU'VE ALWAYS HAD SPECIAL GUESTS ON YOUR RECORDS. WILL THERE BE SPECIAL GUESTS ON THIS RECORD AS WELL? 
yes
WHAT IS YOUR PROCESS IN THE STUDIO? 
we write all the songs in a month or two over a summer, sit on them for about a year and then take another year to slowly record them.
YOU HAVE THREE GUITAR PLAYERS IN YOUR BAND. ISN'T THAT WEIRD? DO YOU FIND THAT CHALLENGING? 
 no
THIS RECORD ALSO HAS 2 DRUM TRACKS. WHAT IS THE DEAL?
we felt that these new songs are a bit groovier than some of our stuff, and could work at different tempos so we decided to record them at both tempos. you will be able to buy the half-tempo record as part of a delux package.
WHATS THE HARDCORE SCENE LIKE IN CANADA?
great
YOU GUYS ARE ON MATADOR RECORDS. THAT MUST BE CRAZY?
ok
DO YOU GUYS TRY TO STRETCH THE BOUNDARIES OF PUNK AND HARDCORE? 
no that's just something people in the press say.
DO YOU FEEL THAT DAMIANS HARSH VOCALS ARE AT ODDS WITH YOUR INCREASINGLY MELODIOUS MUSIC? 
no we think that's one of the special things about the band
DO YOU EVER RUN INTO TROUBLE BECAUSE OF YOUR BAND NAME?
yes
WHY DID YOU PICK THAT NAME?
its personal
YOU RECENTLY CAME OUT OF A LONG HIATUS. WHAT WAS THAT LIKE?
we didnt really go on a hiatus, we just stepped back for a split second.
DESCRIBE THE ENTIRE PROCESS OF FORMING AND PLAYING SHOWS THAT LED UP TO THE POINT OF THIS RECORD BEING RELEASED?
no
YOU ALSO JUST RELEASED 'YEAR OF THE DRAGON'. DID YOU KNOW THAT IT IS ACTUALLY YEAR OF THE SNAKE CURRENTLY?
yes we are late
YEAR OF THE DRAGON IS 18 MINUTES LONG. DO YOU PURPOSELY TRY AND WRITE LONG SONGS FOR YOUR ZODIAC SERIES?
yes
IS YOUR ZODIAC 12" SERIES AN ATTEMPT TO STRETCH THE BOUNDARIES OF PUNK AND HARDCORE?
no
WHATS MAYBE THE CRAZIEST THING THATS EVER HAPPENED AT A FUCKED UP SHOW?
you already asked me that
YOU GUYS PUT OUT A LOT OF 7"'S AND SINGLES. WHATS THAT LIKE?
fun
DOES DAMIAN SMOKE WEED?
yes
FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T HEARD YOU, HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND?
like pushing the boundaries of punk and hardcore
WHAT DOES THE FUTURE OF FUCKED UP HOLD?
probably more records and shows
DID YOU STEAL THE HEADER PICTURE FOR THIS POST FROM BUZZFEED?

ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD?

Check out St Mikes Gospel, verse 11th March.

YEAR OF THE DRAGON is finally done and ready to pre-order from TANK CRIMES HERE. Sorry it's so late, but as consolation, we've already finished recording YEAR OF THE HARE and it's a burner too, so that should come out maybe next fall? Which will make us only like 3 years still behind or something, but whatever. Check out how sick the art is:

Bunnies - Twee
Hares - Hardcore

Hi guys,

Is there any possible chance you`ll take David`s Town vinyls on your EU tour this summer (especially on Hurricane festival in Germany)??

Are there any more left at all?

Thank you

B.

This is all kinds of awesome. As an aspiring music journo, I've definitely been guilty of asking some of these 'no no' questions before. Thanks for sharing guys :)
