    PUP - Indian Handcrafts, Life in Vaccum This event is 19 and over PUPAs of lately, Toronto has been the breeding grounds for some of the best punk rock bands around. The scene is both a blessing and a curse. There seem to be 1,000+ loud rock bands in this city vying for attention, but when you are able to cut through the static, everyone seems to take notice. This is the case for Toronto four-piece, PUP. What sets PUP apart in this booming scene is their ability to fuse raw punk energy with catchy earworms, big hooks, and scream-along choruses. Their songs are loud and fast, equal parts unchecked energy and calculated arrangements, with hair-pin turns, raging guitar riffs, and an overload of gang vocals. Live, the band brings it full-throttled, every single show. They've gained a reputation for their sweaty, raucous, no-holds-barred live set. They play loud. Like really fucking loud. And every time they get on stage, you can be certain they're gonna play their guts out house party, dive bar, festival stage, it doesn't matter. That's why AUX recently called them "One of Toronto's best live bands" and Grid T.O. named them their "Ones To Watch" for September. In their short two years as a band, PUP has never stopped to catch their breath. It's been two years of tireless gigging, sleeping on couches, eating vegetable soup, nose-to-the-grindstone, eating/sleeping/breathing music. Two years of awesome tours, shitty tours, shows with Sloan, Titus Andronicus, Tokyo Police Club, Single Mothers, and a million shows with bands you've never heard of and probably will never hear of. And now, at last, a full-length album, set to be released October 8th. The album was recorded by legendary producer Dave Schiffman (Weezer, The Bronx, Vampire Weekend, Rage Against The Machine), and will be available from Royal Mountain Records. Of the recording process, frontman Stefan Babcock says "We wanted to make an album that captured what we do live. We recorded mostly live off the floor and there are a lot of mistakes on the album, but they're real and awesome, and it sounds like us, playing our songs. That's all I've ever wanted out of a punk rock record." The first single, "Reservoir", has already been making its rounds, debuting at #1 on the CBC R3-30 charts, and catching the attention of Fucked Up and Billy Talent who both handpicked the band to open for them this fall. They'll also be heading out for a major national tour, supporting label-mates Hollerado. Those bands know what so many others are about to find out: PUP is more than just another loud Toronto rock band. Go hear it/see it for yourself. PUP is: Stefan Babcock, Nestor Chumak, Steve Sladkowski, and Zack Mykula. "It's a tricky balance between aggression and pop, and they get it just right" - Stereogum "BAND TO WATCH"
