for those who care, pretend they care and/or at least acted as if they cared... here's somewhat of an explaination. WUF called it quits a few months back. it's taken me this long to announce it due to denial. and for the record, i still plan on denying it. our reasons are our own, and i won't speak for the others. i do want to say, without getting too emo, that i loved this band and what we were about more than anything. we stayed true to what we believed and i think that always showed [ even in the worst cases like fights, attitudes and shitty shows]. i'm thankful to have covered so much life with my bandmates. they taught me a lot about music, art, life and myself. the thought of playing without them seems retarded to me. anyway, i saw the emo meter spike out on that last line, so it's time to wrap it all up.... our future is unknown. a 7" is still "sorta" planned. but when, where, why and how are still unknown. the websites [both myspace and wokeupfalling.com] will stay up for now. we'll post there on any new projects, plans or stabbings. thanks for supporting us. and i want to especially thank a handful of kids [you know who the fuck you are] for keeping rock honest, treating us like family and giving us their hearts on so many occasions. my homeland. my people. THE END. -gordie P.S. we pretty much fucking ruled...

05.25.2006
damn, we sure take our sweet time updating this site. sorry about that. here's the deal: we're going into the studio next week, 5/29, to record some new songs plus a newer/prettier version of "fake your death". two of the songs will be released as a 7" in time for our upcoming july tour. we should have some other new merch about that time too. as for touring; we'll list all dates on the site once we get shit confirmed. the near future is looking pretty exciting. late.

03.17.2006

7 tours and we've never had to cancel shows due to gods wrath on our bodies. darin left portland with "the sickness" and it didn't take long for gordie and zak to catch it as well. gordie and zak have bronchitis [gordie can't sing] and are slowly dying. darin's "the sickness" won't leave him alone. and although josh says he feels fine, we all know he's a fucking liar. and if he's not lying then we are going to lick his face until he gets sick. it's only fair. so yeah, we regretfully have to cancel this tour. we're working on making up dates in april, so it won't be long. thanks to everyone who came out to the few shows we were able to play. and thanks to the bands for dealing with a grumpy, sick, ugly WUF. don't commit suicide. we'll be back in april. promise. and we'll be a "the sickness" free WUF. we rock better alive than dead. thanks! -the voice of WUF

03.01.2005
hello mr. tour! here we come! WUF is leaving on friday for a march tour. some dates have yet to be confirmed, so check back for last minute updates in WA, UT, ID, MI and WI. see you all soon!

02.12.2005
i'm sure this update is pointless as it seems that we were the last to know about the halo closing. no one bothered to contact us and our attempts at contacting them have failed. so, i think it's obvious that we're not playing tonight. sorry. we're bummed. and now that your plans for the night have fallen through, you're probably wondering what to do instead. well, i have a suggestion: play the mel gibson game. go to any bar, get drunk and yell out "it's mel gibson" to every fool who walks through the door. sound lame? you gotta try it to see what i mean. it's fun. e-mail us for more game suggestions...

01.15.2005
in case you didnt notice, it is now 2005. the year that the autobots face a terrifing planet devouring monster named UNICRON. duh! so lets all come together and help the autobots not only defeat unicron but also the decepticons. oh, and the tour is s l o w l y coming together. check out the shows page religously for updates. my new years resolutions? i'm glad you asked... to go on tour and stay on tour. to leave my apartment once in a while. to stop talking to robots...i mean, my dresser. and to stop singing songs about dragons, wizards and villages. but scientist songs are ok. bye.

12.09.2004
sweet. so we have found yet another new bassist. his name is darin. he's scared of you, so be nice to him. and please don't make fun of his flat top haircut or fanny pack. oh, and he drives a BRAT. don't laugh at him. so you know what this means, right? we've posted some tentative tour dates on the shows page. check 'em out. stay sweet. shit.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JOSH HILL! WUF has lost yet another bassist. adam lost all the fingers on his left hand after a tragic practicle joke gone bad. his buddy joe had locked adam, who was willing, in an old freezer on adams parents' back patio. but they were drunk and joe forgot about adam for 26 hours. by the time adam was released, he was suffering from severe frost bite on his fingers and left arm. all the doctors could do was amputate. take care buddy. we love ya. also, check the shows page for an updated tour schedule. due to this tagic accident, we had to shorten this summers tour a bit. thanks. you've been great.
