PUP Goes Corporate In New Video ‘Totally Fine’

PUP have shared their “cinematic masterpiece” “Totally Fine” from their upcoming album, THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND.

The clip, directed by frequent collaborator Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux, sees the band quitting music to go corporate. They’re making boatloads of money until their embezzling schemes are leaked to the public. But after frontman Stefan Babcock makes his case during the band’s trial, they come back ready to tackle the next frontier: space.

Speaking about the song, frontman Stefan Babcock said:

“We wrote ‘Totally Fine’ after a long creative drought. We all agreed to take a break from PUP during lockdown, to take some time to deal with our mental health and get some space from each other. After 3 months of not writing any songs, ‘Totally Fine’ was the first thing to pop out. It broke this creative dam wide open, just months worth of pent up frustration all smashed into this one song. After that, we ended up going on a bit of a tear and wrote the rest of the record really quickly. The drumming on this song still blows our minds. It’s so manic and wild and makes the song feel like it’s about to fall apart at any moment, which is kinda like how it feels to be in PUP.”

Watch the video below.

“Totally Fine” follows previously released singles “Matilda” and “Robot Writes a Love Song.”

THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND drops April 1st. Pre-orders can be found here.
