[Watch] Fucked Up - "Jingle Bells" Live on No Reservations

Following up the photo-shoot filled video for "Turn The Season" that we got earlier in the week, Fucked Up were featured on "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" holiday special. MTV Hive points us in the direction of them doing a very enjoyable version of "Jingle Bells" during the show. So sit back, put your feet up and get in the festive spirit. Or alternatively smash some stuff up. Whichever takes your fancy once you've given the track a listen. (Via P4K)

[Watch] Fucked Up - "Turn the Season" (Official Video)

Fucked Up just don't want to take a break and sit down do they?! We're not complaining and after releasing two LP's in 2011, who knows what 2012 my hold for them? Well, we do actually, and it's at least one release titled "Year of the Tiger". It'll be released as a 12" and features Jim Jarmusch, Austra, and Annie-Claude Deschênes. You can expect to see it in stores onFebruary 21st via Matador (pushed back from the original date of Feb. 7th.)

 It's part of their ongoing Chinese Zodiac singles series and is self described by the band as "one of the best things we’ve ever done". Who are we to question a band and their own confidence, especially when it's Fucked Up.  As well as this release the band have just upped a new visual for their David Comes to Life track, "Turn The Season". According to Matablog, it was recorded during a photoshoot for the David Comes to Life album art. See what you make of the pose filled vid at the top via Spin.

[Watch] Animal Man (Fucked Up) - "Do You Feed"

Here comes some visuals from Fucked Up's fictional band Animal Man. Animal Man were one of many fictional bands that put out tracks on F'd Up's  companion disc for the last LP, David Comes to Life, David's Town. The video is an entertaining watch and sees guitarist Ben Cook giving the British accent a try whilst also having a nice looking date with the bands bass player Sandy Miranda. Oawww.

From experience, not many people can pull of a convincing UK accent. See what you make of Ben's in the video at the top.
