Listen: PUP share new track ‘Rot,’ announce forthcoming EP ‘This Place Sucks Ass’

'This Place Sucks Ass' is set for release on October 23

Toronto punk rockers PUP have announced their new EP This Place Sucks Ass, which is set for release on October 23rd. As part of the announcement, they’ve shared the EP’s opener “Rot.”

The six-track collection will feature the band’s previously released single “Anaphylaxis” in addition to their cover of Grandaddy’s “A.M. 180.”

The EP’s title “was a thing we used to say as a joke a million times on tour,” frontman Stefan Babcock explains. “Literally any city, whether it was Lethbride, Alberta, or New York City, we’d be like, ‘This place sucks ass.’ We have so much negativity, and sometimes it becomes so extreme and ridiculous that we start to find it funny. But at this moment in time, it feels so fucking real. Wherever you are, it sucks ass right now. So, wherever you live, whatever your circumstances, this is an EP about the place you’re from, and the place you’re at now.”
