Fuck The Facts Premiere “Dropping Like Flies” Video

Fuck The Facts have premiered a new video for their song “Dropping Like Flies” via MetalSucks. This track is from the band’s latest album “Pleine Noirceur.“

Guitarist Topon Das said the following about working with director David Hall:

“His unique approach to making videos has always been inspiring to us and we’ve always given him carte blanche (just watch our video for ‘Everywhere Yet Nowhere’). For the ‘Dropping Like Flies‘ video Dave manages to give the viewer an uncomfortable and satirical look at the devastating opioid epidemic. Highlighting just how much this issue is not taken seriously enough.”

Hall added:

“The main inspiration for the video for ‘Dropping Like Flies‘ came directly from Mel’s lyrics. She eloquently sings about addiction as an epidemic and society’s response: ‘help isn’t on the way.’ I wanted to present a vision of hopelessness, the brutal ravaging of addiction, the pervasiveness of prescription meds, the economic forces that conspire, and show some faces not commonly presented as addicts: white people, senior citizens, the middle and upper class. Addiction transcends all demographics. God sends flies to wounds he should heal. Pills rain down from heaven.”

Fuck The Facts Premiere New Song “An Ending”

Fuck The Facts have premiered a new song titled “An Ending.” This track is from the band’s new album “Pleine Noirceur,” which will be released on November 20. Guitarist Topon Das commented:

“A bit of a breather as we reach near the end of the album. This song deviates from the more grindcore and headbashing tunes on the record to show more of our melodic side. Not referenced as often, but the early days of bands like Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Enchantment & Cemetary definitely had a strong influence on my writing as well. There’s a dark and depressing feel to the song that really embodies the theme of the whole album.”

Fuck The Facts Premiere New Song “Everything I Love Is Ending”

Fuck The Facts have premiered a new song titled “Everything I Love Is Ending.” This track is from the band’s new album “Pleine Noirceur,” which will be released on November 20. The group commented:

“‘Everything I Love Is Ending‘ exploits the classic grindcore dichotomy between sludgy and grindy. Even though this song is pretty straight forward, you’ll be able to distinguish four distinct parts, setting completely different moods. Lyrically the song takes on hurt, loss, and coming to terms with the inevitable end of all we hold dear.”

Fuck The Facts Premiere New Song “Dropping Like Flies”

Fuck The Facts have premiered a new song titled “Dropping Like Flies.” This track is from the band’s new album “Pleine Noirceur,“ which will be released on November 20. The group commented:

“I like to think of our songs as belonging on different compilations from back in the day, and this one I imagine being on ‘Death… Is Just The Beginning vol III‘. A nice smorgasbord of old school death metal, d-beat, and groovy weirdness. Lyrically the song talks about the opioid crisis and how so many people have had their lives destroyed while those that are supposed to be looking out for them have turned a blind eye.”

Fuck The Facts Premiere “Ailleurs” Music Video

Fuck The Facts have premiered a new video for their new song “Ailleurs.” This track is from the band’s new album “Pleine Noirceur,“ which will be released on November 20. The group commented:

“It’s a 0-1-3-4 feel. We needed a short grindcore song for all the back-up goalies out there.”

Fuck The Facts Premiere “Pleine Noirceur” Video

Fuck The Facts have premiered a new video for their new single “Pleine Noirceur.” This song is the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on November 20. The group commented:

“We took a long break before working on this album, I feel like it’s a collection of bits and pieces; old and new, short and long. It’s us working back into the groove, just in time for a pandemic. This album also could have easily been 3 EPs, you really have to listen to the whole thing in order to fully enjoy it. It opens the door for what is next.”

01. “Doubt, Fear, Neglect”
02. “Ailleurs”

Maryland Deathfest Postponed To 2021

The 2020 Maryland Deathfest has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event will now take place on May 27-30, 2021 in Baltimore, MD.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“Maryland Deathfest XVIII has been rescheduled!

The new dates for MDF XVIII are May 27-30, 2021.

As mentioned in previous posts, the goal was to retain at least 90% of the line-up, so we’re happy to say that this has been accomplished despite the incredibly short notice. As with every edition of MDF, we were really looking forward to this line-up and put a lot of time, energy and money into it, so we couldn’t fathom watching it all fall apart. By rescheduling to the same weekend next year, we were able to keep it all from falling apart.

Rescheduling the event to any other weekend in the year would have been much more challenging for us to overcome financially, and the line-up wouldn’t have looked anything like it does now. We needed more breathing space to overcome all of this, so rescheduling to next May was the only solution to give the festival a legitimate chance to stay alive.

As of now, there are only 2 bands, Cadaver and Necrophobic, that still need to give us a final answer about their availability to play on the new dates. We will save a space for both bands until we receive confirmation that they can play or not. If any of them can’t play, they will replaced. We’ll keep you updated on this in the coming weeks.

Death Strike and Prostitute Disfigurement are the only 2 bands that definitely can’t commit to the new dates, so replacements for them will be announced soon.

The rest of the line-up remains exactly the same, including day of show for all bands.

The pre-fest party on Wednesday at the Ottobar has also been rescheduled with the exact same line-up. The new date for the pre-fest is Wednesday, May 26th 2021.

All tickets remain valid for the new dates!

If you can hold on to your ticket for 2021, there is no better way to help us through this situation!

It is somewhat of a disaster for us to process refunds right now, keep the line-up pretty much identical, and have very few funds coming in for months to come. We aren’t making this situation all about our own challenges and understand that this pandemic is making it tough for many of you, but we do need to find a proper balance to handle immediate refund requests and not end up bankrupt at the same time. We will be able to process a fair amount of refunds now, but if the requests are excessive, we will need a bit more time to catch up and offset our losses before everyone can be made whole. We will work with everyone who writes, but there’s only so much we can handle in the immediate future.

If you absolutely cannot attend the new dates, you can request a refund by sending a message to our Facebook page or by e-mailing mdftickets@gmail.com

For those that were planning on getting tickets but didn’t because of the uncertainty over the last month, we will make tickets for MDF XVIII available again in 1-2 weeks. These sales will surely help us through this difficult time.

It feels pretty surreal that we just had to post this news. Of course it’s unfortunate that we all have to wait a year for this to finally transpire, but this decision will give MDF a much better chance to survive for years to come.

We hope to see you at MDF XVIII on the new dates!
In the meantime, stay safe and healthy!
