Published Jun 18, 2020PUP are once again keeping themselves busy with some new content. This time, the Toronto band have created a "quarantine-induced performance" of their recent single "Anaphylaxis," which they have treated to a performance video from their socially distanced homes — and tour van.
In a statement, PUP singer Stefan Babcock had this to say about the video:
During our quarantine, I couldn't go to our jam space. I also live in a small apartment and my neighbours understandably get very annoyed and/or concerned about my mental state when they hear me yelling my head off about getting stung by bees or killing my bandmates or whatever garbage these dumb songs are about. So I started making demos and recording in my car in a parking lot across the street from my house. Every few minutes, cops would slowly drive past to see what the unhinged kid in the busted up Ford Escape was doing. But I'm white, so lucky me, my biggest worry was that they'd judge my precious lyrics. White privilege is real. Defund the police.
You can watch the resulting video of "Anaphylaxis" below.
Besides the new performance clip, PUP now have some Morbid Stuff masks up for grabs, with proceeds going to the Trans Toolkits Collective. You can grab one here.
