Toronto punk icons PUP return with highly anticipated new album ‘THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND’

Toronto punk outfit PUP have shared their highly anticipated fourth album THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND.

Recorded over five weeks in the summer of 2021 with Grammy Award-winning producer Peter Katis, the album sees PUP honing in on their anthemic sound. Channeling fun lyrics and raucous melodies, PUP are ready to explore a more refined sonic territory than ever before. THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND features instruments never before heard on a pup song like piano, synths, horns, and more.

“You can hear the band start to fall of the cliff, and because of that, I think this record is our truest and most genuine to date,” Babcock explains. “There is nothing more PUP than a slow and inevitable descent into self-destruction.”

Stream THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND below.

THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND Tracklist:

01 – “Four Chords”
02 – “Totally Fine”
03 – “Robot Writes A Love Song”
04 – “Matilda”
05 – “Relentless”
06 – “Four Chords Pt. II: Five Chords”
07 – “Waiting”
08 – “Habits”
09 – “Cutting Off The Corners”
10 – “Grim Reaping”
11 – “Four Chords Pt. III: Diminishing Returns”
12 – “PUPTHEBAND Inc. Is Filing For Bankruptcy”

Although the record was recorded during isolation, PUP’s new album features remote appearances from Illuminati Hotties’ Sarah, NOBRO’s Kathryn, Casper Skulls’ Mel, and Remo Drive’s Erik.

THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND serves as the follow-up to 2019’s Morbid Stuff. It features previously released singles “Totally Fine,” “Waiting,” “Robot Writes A Love Song,” and “Matilda.”
