“HOLY FVCK is a good surprise and an even better record — maybe the best we’ve heard from Lovato to date.” – Variety
“HOLY FVCK fulfills its promise of sweaty, angsty excess with a tour through pop-punk and adjacent genres…. Lovato is an approachable powerhouse, the kind you can sing along with, and HOLY FVCK’s megahooks offer plenty of opportunities.” – Pitchfork
“Demi returns to her pop-rock roots but digs even deeper… she’s fully embraced the emo, pop-punk aesthetic, yelling from the mountain tops, using every ounce of energy to get rowdy and show off her exuberance.” – TIME
“A fiery album filled with passion, thoughtful reflection, and a dash of good ol’ fashioned rage.” – VOGUE
The 16-track album is a sonic journey grounded in their rock and pop-punk roots and illustrates an earnest yet tongue-in-cheek retrospective of their life experiences. HOLY FVCK includes previously released songs “29,” “SUBSTANCE, ”SKIN OF MY TEETH,” and features from Yungblud, Royal & The Serpent, and Dead Sara.
“When making HOLY FVCK, I wanted to explore the dichotomy between ideas and feelings we all face: good & bad, holy & evil and anger & love. The album is a deeply personal journey that begins with pain and anger and concludes with me reclaiming my power. It gave me the freedom to express myself in ways I didn’t know were possible and find joy I’d been missing when making music. It’s cathartic and grounded, yet exhilarating and a hell of a good time. I don’t know where I’ll be in life in a year, or in five or 10 years – but what I do know is that this record is exactly where I am now, and I am damn proud of it. I hope everyone who listens is too,” states Demi.
Additionally, Demi will bring the album to fans across South America and North America this Fall on their HOLY FVCK Tour. Fans can expect to hear new songs from the album as well as reimagined rock versions of their hits, including “Sorry Not Sorry,” “Cool for the Summer,” and more.
Produced by Live Nation, the 32-date tour will land in South America tomorrow, August 30 in Sao Paulo, continuing with stops in Belo Horizonte, Bogotá, and more before hitting North America on Thursday, September 22 in Wheatland, CA at the Hard Rock Live Sacramento. The North American leg includes stops in New York, Los Angeles, Montreal, Nashville and more before wrapping up in Irving, TX at The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory on Sunday, November 6. Royal & The Serpent and Dead Sara will serve as special guests on select North American dates.
