It’s been nearly two years since beloved Toronto punks PUP released a new song and today, the wait is finally over. The ferocious four-piece release “DVP” today via Soundcloud, a song that the band has been performing live since early 2014.
After playing 300 shows in the last two years across North America, Europe, and Australia, most recently having ripped through a near two month-long run across the United States supporting Modern Baseball, the band is taking it easy...for the time being. Earlier this month, PUP announced their return to NYC for a one-off headlining show at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn on Friday February 12. The show sold out in hours as adoring fans scrambled to get a chance to see them for the first time since their sold out Mercury Lounge show in November of 2014. PUP will also be making a stop in Austin for this year’s SXSW.
Since the 2014 release of PUP’s self-titled debut, this ferocious four-piece has truly taken the world by storm and will undoubtedly continue to with the release of their highly-anticipated new album, coming later this spring. They were listed amongst Rolling Stone’s Breakout Rock Acts of 2014, named one of Kerrang’s 20 Hottest Bands In The World Right Now and garnered nominations for two JUNO Awards and the Prism Prize.
Noisey declared their debut album “a perfect ten,” BrooklynVegan calls them “catchy, anthemic and raw as hell,” Consequence Of Sound boasted that “PUP make punk rock effortless” and even The New York Times included PUP as one of their picks for Best Albums of 2014.
