Fucked Up released a trailer for their new album, Glass Boys, due out some time this summer. The punk outfit played a preview of the album at this month’s Long Winter event at The Great Hall.
Through Tankcrimes, they will also be releasing their two song tribute to Toronto punk, Year of the Dragon, featuring covers of The Ugly and Cardboard Brains. Vocalist, Damian Abraham, can also be seen briefly in Toronto punk doc The Last Pogo Jumps Again.
Courtney Love appears in Fall Out Boy’s latest video for “Rat A Tat”.
Montreal music festival Osheaga decided to release a poster filled with clues as to their lineup rather than a standard festival poster for the 2014 event. CBC Music thinks they’ve found them all (well, maybe). Their proposed lineup does give some word puzzle hints to the possible line up though. Guess them for a chance to win tickets!

Lily told NME that she is worried about Kanye West calling her out for the album title. In the same interview she says “Feminism. I hate that word because it shouldn’t even be a thing anymore”.
The Summer Set cover Fall Out Boy’s “Chicago Is So Two Years Ago” in Chicago on March 7th.
“Let the JUNOs and Robin Thicke know that there is a clear line when it comes to respect for women and they’re on the wrong side of it.”
There is a petition to have Robin Thicke removed from the Junos as a performer and a nominee. After the release of his song “Blurred Lines” feminists and sexual assault victims alike have been teeming with anger over the singer’s use of multiple lines that trivialize rape and shames victims. The petition’s writers state that Thicke’s misogyny opposes Canadian values of equality and human rights.
Read the full petition here.
After the track was banned from a few English Universities, Thicke responded by saying the line “that man is not your maker” is a feminist movement within itself. Similarly, Pharrell Williams responded to Pitchfork’s inquiry, “What would be controversial about it?” citing similar lyrics, and dodging the more controversial lyrics. “People who are agitated just want to be mad, and I accept their opinion.” he says, “We got a kick out of making people dance, and that was the intention.”

On this tour We Are The In Crowd brought along Candy Hearts, State Champs, Set It Off, and William Beckett for support which made for a pretty diverse sounding show and brought out an energetic and excitable crowd.
