Episode 56 : PUP
Life on the road can be tough for any band, but few would be so transparent as to name a song "If This Tour Doesn't Kill You, I Will". While that title might make it seem like PUP are a ball of tension, the Canadian punk outfit balance that frenetic energy with real joy and a vibrant sense of humor. This week, we chat with two halves of the band, as Stefan Babcock and Zack Mykula call in to discuss keeping spirits up in the van, how bands like Thursday and The Flatliners inspired them, quitting day jobs, and the incremental success of underdog punk life.
Head here for more info on PUP, their tour dates, and their latest album, Morbid Stuff.
