PUP Announce New LP ‘Morbid Stuff,’ Share New Single ‘Kids’

Candian punk rockers PUP have announced their third album, Morbid Stuff, out April 5 via their new label Little Dipper (via Rise Records/BMG). The band recorded the album with producer/mixer Dave Schiffman and it deals with vocalist Stephen Babcock’s battle with depression. Check out the artwork and tracklisting below.

PUP gives us a taste of the new record with the album’s lead single “Kids.” Babcock explains the song in a press release saying “‘Kids’ is a love song from one nihilistic depressive to another. It’s about what happens when you stumble across the only other person on the face of this godless, desolate planet that thinks everything is as twisted and as fucked up as you do. And thanks to them, the world starts to seem just a little less bleak. But only slightly — it’s still pretty fucked up to be honest.”

Check out the track below.

In support of the new album, PUP will launch their North American tour with Ratboy and Diet Cigs on alternate dates, in Boston, Massachusetts April 25. Shows wrap up July 3 in Santa Ana, California. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 18.
