Do any 2016 punk bands out there tell it as damn straight as PUP do? “I haven’t felt quite like myself, for months on end / I spend more nights on the floor, than in my own bed.” Writing relatable lyrics with the real feels is something these Toronto punks excel at - their latest track Doubts, premiered earlier today by Zane Lowe on Apple’s Beats 1, sees singer Stephen Babcock continue the self-slaughter he began in DVP – only this time it’s not the boozing, but a broken relationship, that's getting him down. Athough we're sure the two aren't mutually exclusive...

These guys are on one right now – three strong singles in three months, teamed with excellent and creative video clips (like the messed-up If This Tour Doesn’t Kill You, I Will clip, that we wrote about here, and the ’90s video-game-inspired lyric video for DVP). All signs are pointing towards their sophomore album, The Dream is Over, out late next month on SideOne Dummy Records, as being an absolute kicker. 

Listen to Doubts and check out the forthcoming album artwork below.
