PUP share first new songs of 2021 ‘Waiting’ and ‘Kill Something,’ announce 2022 tour

Toronto punks PUP are back with their first new singles of the year, “Waiting” and “Kill Something.” Alongside the release, they’ve announced a 2022 tour.

“‘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,” PUP frontman Stefan Babcock explains. “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.

Listen to “Waiting” and "Kill Something" below:

PUP will be making a return to the stage across the U.S. and Canada next year (including a stop at The Ritz in Raleigh and The Orange Peel in Asheville). Tickets are available for pre-sale via Spotify Fans First and a Seated fan club pre-sale. Through that, $1 of each pre-sale ticket will go toward the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. General tickets go on sale this Friday.
