Out Nov 20th - Noise Salvation - Canadian Grindcore FUCK THE FACTS - Pleine Noirceur

For fans of Brutal Truth, Napalm Death, Converge, Cephalic Carnage, The Dillinger Escape Plan

"It's no secret I love the Canadian death/grinders in Fuck The Facts, and I couldn't be happier to hear after 5 years of radio silence, they're back and better than ever! Their new album, Pleine Noirceur, is set for release on November 20th via the band’s very own Noise Salvation label and today we're premiering the title track off the release. It's as vicious as it is warm and heartfelt, twisting and turning with new surprises while retaining the FTF brand we love over the years." - Metal Injection

"F*ck the Facts Return to Save 2020 With New Song “Pleine Noirceur”...FtF are one of the best grindcore bands in recent history " - Metal Sucks

"The first single (Pleine Noirceur) is the raw, harsh, impassioned title track, which makes this record seem very promising." - Brooklyn Vegan
"Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit, I have been grind hammered. For a band that I didn’t think was still active, Fuck The Facts sound so vital and loose on this one. That’s why they’re here." - Stereogum - THE BLACK MARKET - The Month In Metal – September 2020

"Le groupe de grindcore peu orthodoxe Fuck the Facts est de retour avec un album et nous présente la chanson-titre de celui-ci. Fidèle à leur habitude, le groupe nous livre une solide chanson qui pousse plus loin que ce qu’on entend généralement dans le genre. Une chose est sûre par contre, Mel Mongeon semble fâchée noire! Mais en fait, tout cela est de la douleur qu’elle livre avec aplomb. La pièce se termine dans un beau moment de percussions qui est mélodieux après la brutalité appréciable de la première partie." - Le Canal Auditif

1.  Pleine Noirceur was recorded & 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. 
2. After their contract with Relapse Records ended, Fuck The Facts decided to go fully independent and started their own label called Noise Salvation. Pleine Noirceur is the second full-length album the band has released on the label. 
3. Vocalist Mel Mongeon created all the artwork for Pleine Noirceur and has been responsible for all the band's album artwork since joining the band in 2002.
4. Each version of the physical release (vinyl, CD & cassette) contains a different bonus track that isn’t available digitally. 

“Fuck the Facts is one of the most prolific grind-based bands in Canada’s big, weird extreme music scene.” - Noisey

"avant-garde grindcore road warriors...boundless chaotic energy and unrestrained sense of experimentation. - Exclaim

“Their formidable discography is speckled with blips and bursts of every shade of extreme metal, hardcore, punk, and noise imaginable, spearheaded by vocalist Mel Mongeon’s razor-edged larynx and mastermind Topon Das’ mad fretboard genius.” - Pitchfork

“FUCK THE FACTS brings a strong collection of extreme metal tunes, often technical and scathing, sometimes grindy and with just enough melody to digest without heartburn.” - Blabbermouth

“explosive and ferocious” - Metal Sucks

“Fuck The Facts aren’t your average grindcore band.” - No Clean Singing

“Fuck The Facts never shy away from change. It seems, in fact, that the band embraces progression as much as they embrace chaos.” - Hellbound

“blazing amalgamation of grindcore and death metal that I absolutely love.” - PureGrainAudio

“Canadian grindcore hurricane” - CVLT Nation

“It's impossible to deny that the grindcore-meets-death-metal hybrid sound they've created” - Lambgoat

Started as a recording project in the late 90’s, 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.
