There’s music videos, and then there’s PUP’s new music video. In the frankly amazing new clip for ‘Old Wounds’, you can ‘choose your own adventure’ and go on a journey with each member of the Canadian four-piece.
The task is to get the band back safely to their hotel after a sold-out show. As a press release says: “There are 28 different ways to die, 16 aliens, 10 beers, 5 Eastern Conference NBA playoff team references, and only 4 ways for Stefan, Steve, Nestor and Zack to survive the night.”
“We actually each wrote our own individual storylines,” frontman Stefan Babcock says. “From Steve’s sports obsession to Zack’s weirdo sci-fi brain soup, and Nestor’s unnatural love of pizza to me going off the deep end in the wilderness… this video is pure PUP.”
The band are set to head out on a UK/EU tour with The Menzingers in early 2018.
