PUP are back with their first original music of 2021.

Following their 2019 album 'Morbid Stuff', and their 'This Place Sucks Ass' EP in 2020, tracks Waiting and Kill Something finds the Canadian punks working with Grammy Award-winning producer Peter Katis.

The former is a fiery, joyous number built around a big guitar riff with guest vocals from fellow Canadian Kathryn McCaughey of NOBRO. The latter, meanwhile, is a calmer offering that builds through horns and gang vocals to a raging climax. Singer and guitarist Stefan Babcock said: 

"Waiting came about by smashing the heaviest riff Nestor [Chumak] could write with the simplest, most uplifting chorus I could write, just to see what would happen. The results were very quintessentially PUP, in that the song is a flurry of darkness and anger through the joyous lens of four guys just happy to be here, four guys who don’t take themselves seriously enough to make music that doesn’t feel like fun, regardless of the subject matter.”

The band have also confirmed a return to touring with North American dates lined up between February and May. Head here for details. The news come after the recent announcement that they'll head back to the UK in July to play 2000trees.
