The grindcore smorgasbord of Fuck The Facts have a new album “Pleine Noirceur” coming November 20th and before it officially drops, the band is premiering its full stream via Decibel Magazine HERE.
Experimental and unapologetic, and one of the longest-running bands in the Canadian extreme music scene, they have been destroying stages around the world, from big festivals to dingy basements, since the early 00s.
The first release since 2015, “Pleine Noirceur” dives deep into harsh melodies, different layers, and a variety of different arrangement ideas where each of the members can flaunt their creativity and contribute wholly to the production. Fuck The Facts comment on the album:
“This album is meant to flow as a single piece. With “Desire Will Rot” we feel like we regained some of the dynamics that we lost on “Die Miserable”, and on “Pleine Noirceur” we’ve gone full-on with even more peaks and valleys than I think any record we’ve done in the past. I know it’s not really the trend, but the focus is more on the album than the individual songs themselves.”
“Pleine Noirceur” was recorded and produced entirely at the band’s very own Apartment 2 recording studio. The studio was first started in 2010 when the band recorded their album “Die Miserable” and has since seen many different artists from overall come in to make records.
Fuck The Facts has always put a lot of hard work into being the best possible live band, and it’s something they are constantly looking to improve on. Staying true to their roots and themselves, they are not trying to win people over with flash and fluff.
Recommended for fans of Converge, Cephalic Carnage and The Dillinger, “Pleine Noirceur” will be available on November 20th via the band’s very own label Noise Salvation.

Started as a recording project in the late ’90s, it wasn’t until 2001 that the work ethic that produced a slew of underground releases drove Fuck The Facts towards full band status and into the live arena. Since then, the Ottawa-based unit has barely stopped for a breath of reconsideration, associating themselves with some of the biggest labels in underground extreme music, as well as continuing a steady output of DIY releases. Having toured hundreds of thousands of kilometers throughout North America and Europe, guitarist/founder Topon Das, vocalist Mel Mongeon and drummer Mathieu Vilandré have performed as some of the biggest festivals and sweated it out in some of the smallest basements. From 2006-2011 Fuck the Facts released three albums via underground powerhouse label, Relapse Records. Upon the completion of their contract, the quintet decided it was time to put the finishing touches on the proverbial full-circle, returning to the world of fierce independence and creative control. Their most recent releases were produced entirely at their own studio, self-released, and shows Fuck The Facts efforts as an entity continuing to grow musically and personally while developing a deeper understanding of what significance their art holds to them. As one of the longest-running and most recognizable names in Canadian Grindcore, FUCK THE FACTS continue to deliver their brand of “Bastardized Grindcore” with no end in sight.
