FUCK YOUR BIRTHDAY: “The Plan” Premiered Through New Noise Magazine; Split With SPACE MONKEY Sees Release Via Nefarious Industries As East Coast Tour Begins Next Week


Nefarious Industries prepares to release Blow Out The Candles And Make A Split next week, the new split EP between China/US-based duo FUCK YOUR BIRTHDAY and Chinese act SPACE MONKEY, as FYB begins the East Coast leg of their North American tour. Ahead of the festivities, New Noise Magazine is now streaming the new FUCK YOUR BIRTHDAY single “The Plan.”
Blow Out The Candles And Make A Split will see a limited 7″ vinyl release with one track from both FUCK YOUR BIRTHDAY and SPACE MONKEY, while the digital version will feature an additional track from each band.
The FYB duo offers with “The Plan” track premiere, “For most folks, the plan is to go to work every day and keep chasing that tiny light at the end of the tunnel. But that plan actually sucks. And we wrote a song that details why it sucks, e.g. the low wages, the destruction of your free time, and the shitty tie that chokes you to death. Listen to this song next time you call-in sick.”
Cut out early and check out FUCK YOUR BIRTHDAY’s “The Plan” at New Noise Magazine RIGHT HERE.
Blow Out The Candles And Make A Split will see release via Nefarious Industries on July 12th; find preorders at the label webshop HERE and Bandcamp HERE.
