PUP have announced a new live EP titled PUP Unravels Live in Front of Everyone They Know. Recorded across multiple shows in the band’s hometown of Toronto earlier this year in support of their latest album THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND, the EP includes live versions of ‘Matilda’ and ‘Robot Writes a Love Song’, which are out today. Take a listen below.
“Hometown shows always kinda trip me out,” frontman Stefan Babcock said in a statement. “On one hand, they are the most fun shows to play. Toronto has always rallied behind us and we are so lucky to feel that love. But they are also stressful because you don’t want to screw up in front of everyone you know. All of our families, friends, frenemies, the guy who used to sell me weed at the Wendy’s Drivethru, kids I went to elementary school with, my parents’ neighbours. It’s a lot. I think that sort of anxious chaotic energy is captured on these recordings. PUP live is PUP at our best and also at our worst. Raw, scrappy, and holding on for dear life.”
PUP Unravels Live in Front of Everyone They Know arrives on October 12. The band will embark on a US tour next week before heading to the UK and Europe in October.
