Toronto punk outfit PUP is returning with their playful take on emotional desolation, releasing their third full-length record Morbid Stuff. Full of booming gang vocals and classic punk chords, the title of the record is in direct juxtaposition to the fun sense of comradery vocalist Stefan Babcock brings to his performance. Embracing the cathartic nature of punk music, Babcock airs his negative world view with a sense of glee, touching on themes of chronic depression, manic joy, and “navigating my way through the mind-numbing reality of a godless existence.” No one said morbid stuff can’t be fun!
