PUP Announces New Album “The Unraveling of PupTheBand”, Shares New Single “Robot Writes A Love Song”

By: Staff –

PUP has announced their fourth album, The Unraveling of Puptheband, out April 1. The album was recorded and mixed over the course of five weeks in the summer of 2021, in GRAMMY Award winning producer Peter Katis’ bat-filled mansion in Connecticut. The recording process allowed PUP to push themselves further than ever before. With more time in the studio, they were able to craft their songs sonically in a way they were unable to in the past, and allowed themselves to incorporate new instruments like piano, synths, horns, and more for the first time. Though made in madness-inducing isolation (aside from Peter and the bats, of course), PUP were remotely joined on the album by Sarah Tudzin (Illuminati Hotties), Kathryn McCauhey (NOBRO), Mel St. Pierre (Casper Skulls), and Erik Paulson (Remo Drive). 

The band has also shared a new single and music video for “Robot Writes A Love Song”. Written in 15 minutes and with vocals recorded in the backseat of Stefan’s car, “Robot Writes A Love Song” dissolves into a wash of nervous vocals before becoming what is surely the most emotional song ever written from the perspective of a computer being overwhelmed unto death by actual human emotions. Check out the song and ingenious Whitey McConnaughy-directed music video below.
