PUP To Release New Live Album For One Day Only

Toronto punk rockers PUP have announced their new live album, Live at the Electric Ballroom. The catch? It’ll only be available for one day.

Recorded in London last year, the album will be released exclusively on Bandcamp for #BandcampFriday on Friday, July 3rd. 50% of the record’s proceeds will be donated to Critical Resistance and Breakaway Addiction Services in Toronto.

“We never planned on putting these recordings out, because we expected them to suck,” the band said in a press release. “They were mostly just for ourselves, to mark what we considered to be a pretty big moment in our careers. But turns out, they suck a bit less than we expected. So in typical PUP fashion we made a plan to release them in a self-sabotaging, stupid way. The record will be sold for one day only. After that, it’s gone. Everyone we work with told us it’s a terrible idea. And they are definitely right. But one of the reasons we love working with them is because sometimes they agree to let us fuck up on our own terms, and rally behind us in a supportive way. Thanks guys.”

Check out the tracklisting below.

PUP recently shared their first live performance of their new track “Anaphylaxis.” In addition, the band will perform at Chicago’s Riot Fest next year. Get tickets here.

This Friday marks the third installment of Bandcamp Friday, a day where the platform waives its revenue sale to help artists and labels impacted by COVID-19.
