The brand new video from Ottawa-based grindcore technicians FUCK THE FACTS has been released today.
Constructed for the song “Drift” — the scathing opening track from FTF‘s late 2011-released eighth LP, Die Miserable — the imaginative, creepy video was created by David Hall of Handshake Inc., known for previous videos he’s directed for Today is the Day, Brutal Truth, Hail of Bullets, Jucifer, Bastard Noise, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Sigh, Rwake and tons more, in addition to previous work with FUCK THE FACTS.
A full director’s statement on the visualization/creation of the video joins the visual mayhem VIA METAL INJECTION.
Following their month-long European tour which wrapped up in early April, FUCK THE FACTS are set to storm their native country on the Canadian Ritual Tour 2012. Beginning late next week the tour will invade twenty cities across Canada and the upper US — headlined by Detroit crushers The Black Dahlia Murder, with support from FUCK THE FACTS and their Relapse labelmates Cali gore kings Exhumed — with FTF headlining several additional dates along the route.
