VIDEO NEWS: Fucked Up Share Video For New Single ‘Cicada’

This Friday, January 27th, Toronto’s Fucked Up will release their highly anticipated new album, One Day. They have now released its final single, Cicada. Dedicated to lost friends, the bittersweet Cicada features guitarist Mike Haliechuk on lead vocals. Directed by Colin Medley, the black-and-white video is an intimate look at the life of Fucked Up.

In Haliechuk’s words:

“‘Cicada’ is about what life is like after you lose people, and our responsibility to carry them forward into the future, using the things they taught us as a light. I like to imagine the sound of cicadas as a metaphor for our strange life in the subculture—we all just live these weird little hidden lives under the dirt, and then once in a generation, one of us gets to bust out of the dirt and intone their song so loud that it can be heard all over.”
