PUP’s fourth studio record ‘THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND’ was recorded and mixed over the course of five weeks in GRAMMY Award-winning producer Peter Katis’ bat-filled mansion in Connecticut. Full of typically furious, ridiculous and anthemic songs, the recording process allowed PUP to push themselves further than ever before. With more time in the studio, they were able to craft their songs sonically in a way they were unable to in the past, and allowed themselves to incorporate new instruments like piano, synths, horns, and more for the first time. Though made in madness-inducing isolation (aside from Peter and the bats, of course), PUP were remotely joined on the album by Sarah from illuminati hotties, Kathryn from NOBRO, Mel from Casper Skulls, and Erik from Remo Drive. The result is not just the next PUP record, but the *most* PUP record.
PUP have received countless year-end nods from the likes of Pitchfork, Paste, Stereogum, Exclaim! and NPR. They have performed live on Late Night With Seth Meyers (twice) + NPR’s Tiny Desk, BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale Session and at CBC in Canada. They’ve been nominated and won the JUNO award for Alternative Album of The Year, were shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize, and sold-out shows across the globe!
