Following the release of Morbid Stuff, PUP have released a new video for the album’s track, “Sibling Rivalry.”
The Martin MacPherson-animated clip tells the stories of frontman Stefan Babcock’s camping experiences with his sister, which usually end in a complete disaster. From swimmer’s itch to extreme weather, Babcock and his sister are forced to tackle problem after problem in this video.
“My sister and I go on pretty wild camping trips every year. Each year they get crazier and crazier, because we’re constantly trying to out-dumb one another,” Babcock explains in a statement. “This song is about a couple of those trips. In order to tell some of these very stupid stories, I’ve started drawing really shitty comics. I draw like a 5 year old, but I love doing it. There’s something liberating about diving headfirst into something you know is going to turn out like absolute trash. Luckily for me, my pal Marty is really creative and incredibly good at animation, and he really helped bring these stories to life in this video.”
Watch the video for “Sibling Rivalry” below.
Catch PUP at RBC Echo Beach on July 21st.
