Zombitrol Productions presents the Toronto return of Fuck The Facts promoting their latest album Desire Will Rot. Through numerous releases and hard gigging the Ottawa band has become one of the most respected Canadian acts in the international metal underground, with notable performances at Maryland Deathfest and Obscene Extreme Montreal. They were also nominated for a Juno in 2012 and were featured on the cover of Exclaim! magazine in 2008. Desire Will Rot is their first self-released full length album since their highly successful stint on Relapse Records.
With special guests:
Flying Fortress (Pembroke) - This bass/drum duo is made of up to two thirds of cult favourites Goat Horn and play a sound that’s self-described as “crusty thrash rock.” They’ve just released their second full length album Dirty Rain.
Völur (Toronto) - One of the city’s fastest rising bands, this trio plays a unique combination of folk music and doom metal featuring violin and upright bass. The band also shares a member with occult hard rock superstars Blood Ceremony. Their latest full length album is 2014’s Disir.
Opening the show will be Toronto one-man harsh noise/grind project Goth Girl.
