In the video for their new single “If This Tour Doesn’t Kill You, I Will”, Toronto punks PUP act out a shocking scenario of their life on the road. Having toured all over the world since the release of their self-titled debut in 2013, it’s a perspective they know all too well, and one that heavily influenced the themes on their forthcoming album.
The Dream Is Over, out May 27. Physical pre-orders for the album are available now: puptheband.com
i-Tunes pre-orders are available on Friday 1 April.

Named for the first thing doctors told singer/guitarist Stefan Babcock after a recent examination of his damaged vocal chords, The Dream Is Over finds PUP as confident and as in tune with each other as they have ever been. It’s a conscious act of rebellious defiance that turns this crazy dream of theirs back on its head. If anything, The Dream Is Over is a visible, visceral proof that the dream is, in fact, very much alive.
