Published Aug 24, 2017Perennially touring punks PUP recently took home the 2017 SOCAN Songwriting Prize for "DVP" off last year's The Dream Is Over, and now another cut off that LP has been given some special treatment.
The band have given "Old Wounds" a brand new video (directed by Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux ), and like "DVP" before it, the clip transports viewers into the retro virtual world.
This time, though, the band one-up themselves by turning the clip into a choose-your-own-adventure-style videogame. Fans get to step into the role of tour manager and have to get each of the bandmates home safely after a show. If you suck at your job, there's a good chance the dudes in the band are gonna end up dead — no pressure!
"This video is one of the craziest things we've done as a band," frontman Stefan Babcock said in a statement. "I'm so proud of this thing, and am absolutely convinced that Jeremy is a total savant. We actually each wrote our own individual storylines. From Steve's sports obsession to Zack's weirdo sci-fi brain soup, and Nestor's unnatural love of pizza to me going off the deep end in the wilderness… this video is pure PUP."
