The Skinny: It’s been nearly two years since beloved Toronto punks PUP released a new song and today, the wait is finally over. The ferocious four-piece release “DVP” today via SoundCloud, a song that the band has been playing live since early 2014.

Earlier this month, PUP announced their return to NYC for a one-off headlining show at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn on Friday February 12. The show sold out in less than 24 hours as adoring fans scrambled to get a chance to see them for the first time since their sold out Mercury Lounge show in November of 2014. In addition, PUP will play a headlining show in Buffalo the night before, Thursday February 11, at The Waiting Room. PUP will also head to Austin, TX later this spring for this year’s SXSW.
