Canadian band Fucked Up have launched their first ever website, offering fans a host of rarities and downloads as a celebration.

Despite forming in 2001, the hardcore band had previously resisted the need to have an online presence. However, that has now changed with the band launching fuckedup.cc yesterday (August 16). The website comes complete with archive materials including old pictures, flyers and posters from previous gigs as well as the rare demos, live tracks, side projects and B-sides. Fans are encouraged to send their own Fucked Up memorabilia to the band for inclusion on the website.

A message on the site, written by the band, reads: "After playing almost 750 shows and releasing over 60 records, we’ve finally decided to do something that most bands now do before having ever played live or physically released anything — make a real website. At first, without a place on the internet that we called home, it felt mysterious, later just useless, and finally it just became a talking point. Now we realise that it’s just become a pain in the ass."

Four mixtapes, originally released on cassette, are available to stream in full while fans can also check out the 2007 Christmas song 'Stars on 45', which features appearances by Nelly Furtado, James Murphy and Arrested Development actor David Cross.

Scroll down to stream 'Stars on 45' now.
