TV EYE: PUP Were on Television

The Toronto punks brought their morbid stuff to the Late Night with Seth Meyers stage.

PUP’s been trying to get your attention for years. They’ve somehow played, like, ten thousand shows since first touring their 2013 debut, quickly earning headlining spots after converting bystanders to their vicious punk energy in opening spots.

Before embarking on a mostly sold out headlining tour this spring in support of their third LP, Morbid Stuff, the Torontonians brought their single “Kids” to the Late Night stage, amplifying their memorable stage presence to whole new demographics. That’s right, the song where Stefan Babcock sings lines like, “I’ve been navigating my way through the mind-numbing reality of a godless existence” and “I’m drifting on the dark and empty sea of nothing” was played to a national audience.

Check out the clip below, and—though perhaps futile—see their full tour dates here. Your parents might know who PUP is now.
