Band, PUP, Punk Band

Looks like this will be a busy year for Toronto punks PUP. The band previously announced a new album in the works that would be out sometime this year. Now, they’ve revealed all the details of their next LP “The Dream is Over.” Titled after something Stefan Babcock’s doctor told him when he discovered a hemorrhaging cyst on his vocal chords, PUP’s sophomore effort will be out May 27 via SideOneDummy/Royal Mountain Records. The band already gave fans a taste of the new material with “DVP.” This time PUP shared their new single “If This Tour Doesn’t Kill You, I Will.”


Along with new album news, the band also revealed 2016 tour dates for later this spring. Dates kick off May 26 in Toronto and wrap up June 25 in Brooklyn, NY. PUP will hit Chicago June 2 playing at Subterranean. Check out the complete list of dates below. Also, check out the tracklisting for “The Dream is Over.”
