Fucked Up’s David Comes to Life is one of the best albums, hardcore or not, that you’ll hear all year. The punk rock opera has already claimed the #1 spot on Spin’s best-of album list, and it’s sure to rack up more acclaim before 2011 is over. It’s all been a long time coming for the Canadian outfit, who may even be retiring within a few years.
But acclaim is not particularly punk rock. What is, though, is a carefully shot concept music video for "Turn the Season," one of the songs off of David. In the video, the band mulls about a studio while everyone looks unhappy, until the "twist" ending. (Fine: a bunch of stuff explodes.) The video’s right in line with the rest of David‘s high concept, well shot releases, and the whole album is pretty stellar; if you haven’t deafened yourself today, please get to it.
