Cat No: OLE807LP

On limited edition clear orange 2LP for the album’s 15th anniversary.  The latest installment of Matador’s Revisionist History Catalog Series.


Fucked Up’s now classic 2008 album The Chemistry Of Common Life synthesizes numerous diverse impulses into an expansive epic about the mysteries of birth, death, and the origins of life (and re-living). Merging elements of hardcore songwriting with up to 70 tracks of guitars, organs, winds and vocals, (including 18 guitars on the first single, the fatalistic “No Epiphany”), the music remains iconoclastic and startling, with Pink Eyes’ vocals front and center. Guest musicians, of course, abound, notably gorgeous voices such as Brooklyn’s Vivian Girls and Toronto’s Katie Stelmanis.


“A radical redrawing of hardcore’s boundaries.” – Uncut


“Pummeling and riveting.” – Pitchfork
