Considering everything that’s happened this year, most aren’t in the mood to hear sappy, upbeat Christmas songs. Charly Bliss and PUP understand and have given us their angsty new holiday song “It’s Christmas and I Fucking Miss You.”
“Our managers have been trying to get us to write a Christmas song for years and we’ve never followed through, but we decided that enlisting our friends in PUP would at least make it fun,” said Charly Bliss singer/guitarist Eva Hendricks.
“We never imagined we’d be so proud and absolutely thrilled as we are by the results. We tried to write a song that reflects the absolute insanity of this year and the fact that everyone in the world is stuck missing someone this holiday season and probably feeling a similar combination of emo, angsty and vulnerable!!!!”
PUP singer/guitarist Stefan Babcock added “I was so excited when Charly Bliss asked me to write a Christmas song with them. I don’t know if I’d be able to write a Christmas song under normal circumstances, but since Christmas is shit this year, seemed like it was right in my wheelhouse! Plus Charly Bliss are an amazing band and amazing people, so it was a no-brainer. If we’re judging it alongside other Christmas songs, I think we smashed it.”

PUP’s new EP, the appropriately titled This Place Sucks Ass is out now. Charly Bliss released their second album, Young Enough, last year.
