Music

Toronto pop punk band PUP have announced a new EP titled This Place Sucks Ass. The six-song release lands October 23 via Little Dipper/Rise. The group has also shared the EP’s opener “Rot,” which you can hear below.

This Place Sucks Ass includes PUP’s previously released single “Anaphylaxis,” as well as the band’s cover of Grandaddy’s “A.M. 180.” Of the EP’s title, frontman Stefan Babcock said in a press release:

It was a thing we used to say as a joke a million times on tour. Literally any city, whether it was Lethbridge, Alberta, or New York City, we’d be like, “This place sucks ass.” We have so much negativity, and sometimes it becomes so extreme and ridiculous that we start to find it funny. But at this moment in time, it feels so fucking real. Wherever you are, it sucks ass right now. So, wherever you live, whatever your circumstances, this is an EP about the place you’re from, and the place you’re at now.

Everything sucks and that’s OK, because it sucks for everybody, and we can make it a little bit better by being together in the shittiness.

PUP have also announced their first-ever livestream show in celebration of the EP’s release. “This Stream Sucks Ass” will take place October 23 at 9 p.m. Eastern. Check out the flyer below.

“What can you expect from the livestream? Like most regular PUP shows, it’ll probably be a bit of a trainwreck, which is really all part of the magic,” PUP said in press materials. “We don’t know if it’ll be any good, but we do promise it will be weird and different from any livestream you’ve ever seen. It’s being directed by our pal (and 5th member of PUP) Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux, who has also directed almost all of our music videos. It will be fun and unhinged and entirely unprofessional. Am I selling it? I think I’m selling it.”

PUP released their third studio album Morbid Stuff in 2019. Read Pitchfork’s “32 Artists on the Music They’re Turning to During the Coronavirus Crisis,” featuring PUP’s Steve Sladkowski.
