Fucked Up are set to release a new rock opera album, 'David Comes To Life', on June 7.

The album from the Canadian punk rockers boasts 18 songs and clocks in at 78 minutes.

The first single from the album, 'The Other Shoe', is available to download from Matadorrecords.com now. It will be the first of four singles from the album coming out before the full record is released.

Writing on their blog, Lookingforgold.blogspot.com, the band explained that the new album had been in the works for quite some time.

"We had gotten used to the easy-going pace of putting out 23,435,494 seven-inch singles a year, which we'd been doing for the previous five years," they explained. "We decide the only thing more ridiculous than putting out a 73-minute punk record was to just say fuck it and do a musical."

They added: "We honestly came up with this idea in, like, 2006 and have been meaning to do it since then."

They've also set up a website, Davidcomestolife.com, hosting more information about the album.
