PUP Share Two New Songs, Announce 2022 Tour Dates

By: Staff –

Toronto punk band PUP—comprised of Stefan Babcock, Nestor Chumak, Zack Mykula, and Steve Sladkowski—have released their first new original songs of 2021, and announce their return to touring with a U.S. and Canadian run slated for 2022. 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. General on-sale is this Friday. See below to find a show near you and get your tickets here.

PUP has also shared their first two original songs of 2021, “Waiting” and “Kill Something”, which were produced by GRAMMY Award winner Peter Katis (Interpol, The National, Kurt Vile). “Waiting”, which features fellow Canadian punk artist Kathryn McCaughey (NOBRO), is a riotous, joyful and ridiculously fun track that has everything you want from a PUP song, and more. 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.” 

“Kill Something” is about Stefan’s dog Moose, who loves to destroy his favorite things, and then is sad that those things are destroyed. We feel you, Moose.
