Today, PUP is stoked to finally announce the release of their self-titled debut album on April 8, 2014!
Pre-orders for the album are now available via:
Produced by Dave Schiffman (The Mars Volta, Weezer, Biffy Clyro), PUP’s debut album is the perfect fusion of raw punk with big hooks and scream-along choruses. The record delivers catchy earworms from beginning to end, from the gut-wrenching, CBC #1 single “Reservoir” to the undeniable party anthem “Lionheart” and the crushing album opener “Guilt Trip,” which is currently streaming via Spin Magazine.
“We wanted to make an album that captured what we do live,” says vocalist Stefan Babcock. “We recorded mostly live off the floor and there are a lot of mistakes on the album but they’re real and awesome, and it sounds like us, playing our songs. That’s all I’ve ever wanted out of a punk rock record.”
PUP is an undeniably infectious band with reckless, visceral energy oozing from their every pore. In just two short years, they’ve taken both Canada and the United States by storm, sharing stages with the likes of Fucked Up, Titus Andronicus, AFI, So So Glos, Yuck, Cancer Bats and many more. Earlier this month, PUP played NME’s Award Show in London before going on a co-headline run with UK garage punks, Slaves.
