Congrats is the fourth studio album by Canadian electronica band Holy Fuck, released in May 2016 via Innovative Leisure Records.

After a six year gap, Congrats is the follow-up to 2010's Latin and was released on 27 May 2016.

The band uses live instrumentation and miscellaneous instruments and non-instruments (including a 35 mm film synchronizer, toy keyboards and toy phaser guns) to achieve electronic-sounding effects without the use of laptops or programmed backing tracks. According to Pitchfork Media, "The band was formed with the intent of creating the equivalent of modern electronic music without actually using the techniques—looping, splicing, programming and the like—of that music."

The band's track They're Going to Take My Thumbs featured in the first episode of Breaking Bad Season 2.

Congrats was recorded over three days in a studio (rather than their usual Ontario barn) by the same lineup that recorded Latin: Borcherdt, Graham Walsh, Matt "Punchy" McQuaid, and Matt Schulz. 

"When you're sitting still in a van and staring out the windows, you start to dream about all the other things you want to do," Brian Borcherdt said in a press release. "This album is exactly what we couldn't do then."

Mojo magazine gave the album a very positive review, rating it 4 out of 5 stars. According to Mojo, the album is "no less aggressive than it's predecessors" and "a mix of pop and electronic ska and is the aural equivalent of a subteranian nightclub". 

Check out a couple of tracks from the album here:  Xed Eyes and Tom Tom.

This LP Record is housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with a Die Cut Shaped Edge, contains a Digital Download Card, and was pressed in the U.S.
