They’ve also announced a 2022 US and Canadian tour.

Back with some bangers, PUP are sharing their first new music of 2021, dropping new tracks ‘Waiting’ and ‘Kill Something’.

“‘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,” the band’s 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.”

Alongside the new tracks, they’ve also announced a US and Canadian tour! Check it all out below.
