PUP PERFORMS ON LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS, SHARES TWO NEW SONGS

LISTEN AND SHARE “SIBLING RIVALRY” + “SCORPION HILL” HERE

MORBID STUFF DUE OUT APRIL 5 VIA LITTLE DIPPER / UNIVERSAL MUSIC CANADA

THE MORBID STUFF TOUR-POCALYPSE 2019 BEGINS MARCH 26

PRE-ORDER MORBID STUFF HERE

Toronto’s very own punk powerhouse – PUP – will release their new record Morbid Stuff in April, and today the band shares not one but two new songs from the album – “Sibling Rivalry” and “Scorpion Hill”. “Sibling Rivalry” is a song for Stefan’s sister and their annual disaster-filled camping trips, and the epic “Scorpion Hill”, which Stefan says is “about embracing your demons and finding some humour in the darkness,” is the longest PUP song ever released, with an accordion outro to boot.

PUP also made their late night television debut this week, performing the hell out of Morbid Stuff’s lead single, “Kids”, on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

This Spring, PUP will embark on a North America, UK and Europe tour in support of Morbid Stuff. All Canadian dates are already sold out, as are New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Portland, Minneapolis, Washington DC, Toronto, Brussels, Paris, Berlin, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Cologne and all of the U.K. The band also just announced a hometown show in Toronto at Echo Beach on July 21st, with support from Twin Peaks and Charly Bliss. See below to find a show near you, and grab your tickets HERE as these are selling fast.

Formed in Toronto five years ago, PUP – comprised of Stefan Babcock, Nestor Chumak, Zack Mykula, and Steve Sladowski – quickly became favorites of the punk scene with their first two, critically-beloved albums, winning accolades everywhere from the New York Times to Pitchfork, from NPR and Rolling Stone, and more. Now, with Morbid Stuff, PUP have grown up and doubled down on everything that made you love their first two records. It’s gang’s-all-here vocals, guitarmonies, and lyrics about death. Lots of them. Fitting to their ethos, their new album takes the dichotomy of fun and emotional wreckage in their songs and teeters between gleeful chaos and bleak oblivion while wielding some of the best choruses the band has ever written. It’s the most insightful, sweetest, funniest, sickest, angriest, saddest and most inescapably desperate collection of songs they’ve recorded to date.  If their self-titled record was the fuse and The Dream Is Over was the bomb going off, Morbid Stuff is your family sifting through the rubble, only to find you giggling while you bleed to death.
