Two years of relentless touring took a toll on newly minted Exclaim! cover stars PUP, but they're ready to take on the world this time around, having announced an expansive tour in support of their latest effort, The Dream Is Over.

The band's global trek will see them make their way through the United States, the UK, Australia and their native Canada. After a handful of American dates alongside Rozwell Kid, Pkew Pkew Pkew and Charly Bliss, the band will pop up in Ottawa and Guelph at Ottawa Bluesfest and Hillside Festival, respectively, before crossing the pond to the UK.

The four-piece will return to home turf in October, with dates lined up in such Canadian cites as Halifax, Quebec City, Vancouver, Calgary, Saskatoon and Winnipeg. among others. If their recent roaring hometown concert was any indication, these are shows you won't want to miss.

The Dream Is Over is out now on Royal Mountain Records/SideOneDummy. Scroll through the band's lengthy tour itinerary and revisit the video for "If This Tour Doesn't Kill You, I Will" below.
