Stigmata High-Five

Stigmata High-Five

Stigmata-High Five is the seventh full-length album by the Canadian grindcore band Fuck the Facts released August 20, 2006 (see 2006 in music). It is the band's first release on Relapse Records. Stigmata High-Five is also the first recording to feature Mathieu Vilandré on drums. He had joined the band as a second guitarist in 2005 and took over drumming duties after Tim Olsen was asked to leave the band.

In January 2006 it was announced that Stigmata High-Five would be released on Great White North Records in May of that year. The Collection of Splits 2002-2004, which was slated for a February release, was pushed back until late May, and ended up being the final release on Great White North Records before it folded. However, early into the recording of Stigmata High-Five, Relapse Records contacted the band and secured a three-album deal.

The album was released on an enhanced CD that contains 2 bonus tracks in MP3 format, as well as a "making of" video and a music video. The album was also released on 3 different colors of vinyl; white (limited to 300 copies), red (limited to 600 copies) and clear (limited to 100 copies and not available to the public).
