Oakland, CA's Tank Crimes will be releasing the 6th edition in Fucked Up's Zodiac Series this April 15 with a 12"/CD/digital EP of 'Year Of The Dragon'. The titular, epic A-side clocks in at 17 minutes long and is backed by covers of Cardboard Brains' "I Wanna Be A Yank" and The Ugly's "Disorder". The first pressing of the 12" is said to include a 6-minute, edited version of "Year Of The Dragon" on a 7" flexi-disc.
We'll have an announcement to make about a new, full-length Fucked Up album on Matador very soon.
