PUP have released a live video for their latest single Anaphylaxis, filmed during lockdown amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The track is the band’s first new material of 2020 and follows their 2019 album Morbid Stuff.
“During our quarantine, I couldn’t go to our jam space. I also live in a small apartment and my neighbours understandably get very annoyed and/or concerned about my mental state when they hear me yelling my head off about getting stung by bees or killing my bandmates or whatever garbage these dumb songs are about,” says lead vocalist Stefan Babcock. “So I started making demos and recording in my car in a parking lot across the street from my house. Every few minutes, cops would slowly drive past to see what the unhinged kid in the busted up Ford Escape was doing. But I’m white, so lucky me, my biggest worry was that they’d judge my precious lyrics. White privilege is real. Defund the police.”

PUP have also released Morbid Stuff-themed masks, available to purchase HERE. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Trans Toolkits Collective, support trans, two-spirit, and non-binary people in Toronto dealing with gender dysphoria, and being hit especially hard by COVID-19, by delivering personalised toolkits of gender essential items.
