PUP—comprised of Stefan Babcock, Nestor Chumak, Zack Mykula, and Steve Sladkowski—release their first new original songs of 2021 today, and a new run of tour dates through North America. Tickets will be available for pre-sale tomorrow courtesy of Spotify Fans First, as well as via a Seated fan club pre-sale, where $1 per pre-sale ticket will go towards the Indian Residential School Survivors Society.

The two new PUP tracks, “Waiting” and “Kill Something,” were produced by Peter Katis (Interpol, The National, Kurt Vile). “Waiting,” which features fellow Canadian punk artist Kathryn McCaughey of NOBRO. Stefan explains why: “‘Waiting’ came about by smashing the heaviest riff Nestor could write with the simplest, most uplifting chorus I could write, just to see what would happen. The results were very quintessentially PUP, in that the song is a flurry of darkness and anger through the joyous lens of four guys just happy to be here, four guys who don’t take themselves seriously enough to make music that doesn’t feel like fun, regardless of the subject matter.”
