PUP announces live EP ‘PUP Unravels Live In Front Of Everyone They Know,’ announce European tour

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, countless Top 10 Billboard chart positions including #1 Heatseekers, Top New Artists Albums and Alternative New Artist Albums, and a slew of sold-out shows. Now, 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 October 12th, and the band shares its first two tracks today. Listen to live versions of ‘Matilda’ and ‘Robot Writes A Love Song’ below.

“Hometown shows always kinda trip me out,” says Babcock. “On one hand, they are the most fun shows to play. Toronto has always rallied behind us and we are so lucky to feel that love. But they are also stressful because you don’t want to screw up in front of everyone you know. All of our families, friends, frenemies, the guy who used to sell me weed at the Wendy’s Drivethru, kids I went to elementary school with, my parents’ neighbours. It’s a lot. I think that sort of anxious chaotic energy is captured on these recordings. PUP live is PUP at our best and also at our worst. Raw, scrappy, and holding on for dear life.”
