Following the storming tease of “DVP“, PUP have finally detailed the release of their second album, and with it shared opening track “If This Tour Doesn’t Kill You, I Will”.
The Toronto quartet’s second album has been a long time coming, but if judging by the two tracks they’ve shared so far, it’s certainly proving worth the wait. The vicious lyrics and a wild energy of “If This Tour Doesn’t Kill You, I Will” present the group at their most vital.
The accompanying video isn’t for the feint of heart: featuring blood, blazes, and boisterous crowd, PUP may have faced a number of challenges along the way (including frontman Stefan Babcock’s vocal chord injuries that almost caused the band to prematurely call it quits), but despite the title they’ve branded their new record with, the dream is far from over.
