Fucked Up – “Queen of Hearts”

Toronto punks Fucked Up are set to release their new 18-track opus, ‘David Comes to Life,’ on June 7 via Matador Records. In the meantime, the band debuted a new song entitled “Queen of Hearts,” which features guest vocals from Madeline Follin of Cults.

On their blog, the band stated, “Well we wrote most of this song in 2004 or 2005 and made up the chorus and the bridge over the summer. That intro riff has been rattling around inside my head since we released Dance of Death. There’s a few other tracks in this collection that are as old, kind of crazy. We were listening to a lot of Smashing Pumpkins at the time, so maybe you can hear a bit of a resemblance.”
