PUP "DVP" (lyric video)
Published Feb 09, 2016After teasing their sophomore record with the release of "DVP" last month, PUP have offered up an amusing lyric video for the new high-energy album cut.
Directed by Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux, the track's lyrics are playfully worked into footage from classic videogames such as Punch-Out!!, Super Mario Bros., Mega Man, Pokémon, Mortal Kombat and a wealth of others.
"The four of us grew up in the golden-age of spastic, seizure inducing video games (see: the '90s)," vocalist Stefan Babcock said in a press release. "Our best bud Jeremy had the idea to smash together scenes from some of our favourite games in a hot pile of ADHD-insanity. Turns out that pairs really well with our music. Go figure."
The band have also announced a headlining show in their native Toronto at the Phoenix Concert Theatre, set for May 26. Tickets for the show can be found here.
