This just in from the Department of Awesomely Breaking News: Fucked Up, the rippers on perennial fave label What’s Your Rupture, are releasing a “special festive single” to benefit Toronto's George Herman House, a housing/life skills program that supports women living with mental health issues. Along with the feelings of self worth/warm fuzzies that you get from helping those less fortunate, the 7-inch is filled with more treats than a stocking from Kris Kringle! Side A features “a brand new holiday themed song about the birth of our lord and savior” (not sure if they mean that in the god sense or the D’Angelo sense) and side B—hold on to your mistletoe—features another seasonal melody with: James Murphy of LCD famery, Cole from Black Lips, Matt Sweeney from Zwan and Will Oldham sidekickery, Dave One from Chromeo, Jay Reatard, and uhm Nelly Furtado. Plus other righteous sisters and brothers too numerous to mention here. Dec 15th will see a kickoff party which we’ll remind you about later, and until then check Fucked Up or What’s Your Rupture for more deets. Spread the holiday cheer!
