LISTEN: Holy Fuck Have Returned to Hit the “Tom Tom”
The band’s fourth LP Congrats will be out May 27 via Innovative Leisure/Last Gang.
Holy Fuck, one of the most un-Google-able bands out there, are on their way back into the scene after a six-year absence. The experimental electronic group initially teased their return with some creepy footage and a snippet of music, which was today revealed to been a bit from their first single “Tom Tom.”
The upcoming album, Congrats, is the Toronto quartet’s fourth, and was said to have been recorded in just three days. Despite this tidbit, though, the release was apparently a very labored project overall, as Brian Borcherdt explained to Exclaim!:
We really spent a lot of this time putting the right pieces together—the right people, the right management and booking agents—because we want to make sure we have people who know how to work with us without overworking us. I think that’s one of the mistakes we made in the past and it had to do with being a little bit mismanaged and stuff. As long as we were busy, all the people busy working with us, or for us, were happy. Especially because we were known as a live band… Because of that we just played constantly. We just never stopped. We can’t do that anymore obviously.
