PUP Announces Live EP

PUP Unravels Live In Front Of Everyone They Know

UK/EU Tour In October


Toronto punk heroes PUP—comprised of Stefan Babcock, Nestor Chumak, Zack Mykula, and Steve Sladkowski— released their incredible, ambitious and aptly titled fourth album, THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND, earlier this year. The record earned universal acclaim and a slew of sold-out shows. Today, before the band kicks off their U.S. tour next week, PUP announces a live EP.

PUP Unravels Live In Front Of Everyone They Know was recorded across multiple shows in the band’s hometown of Toronto earlier this year. The EP will be released on 12th October, and the band shares its first two tracks today. Listen to live versions of “Matilda” and “Robot Writes A Love Song” HERE.

THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND was recorded and mixed over the course of five weeks in the summer of 2021, in GRAMMY Award-winning producer Peter Katis’ bat-filled mansion in Connecticut. Full of typically furious, ridiculous and anthemic songs, the recording process allowed PUP to push themselves further than ever before. With more time in the studio, they were able to craft their songs sonically in a way they were unable to in the past, and allowed themselves to incorporate new instruments like piano, synths, horns, and more for the first time. Though made in madness-inducing isolation (aside from Peter and the bats, of course), PUP were remotely joined on the album by Sarah from illuminati hotties, Kathryn from NOBRO, Mel from Casper Skulls, and Erik from Remo Drive. The result is not just the next PUP record, but the most PUP record.
