PUP Share Claymation Video for Rad New Single “Anaphylaxis”



Toronto punk rockers, PUP has lifted the lid on a brand new single titled “Anaphylaxis.” The track is the first since the release of the band’s immensely popular album, Morbid Stuff, which dropped on April 5, 2019, via Rise Records and Little Dipper. Stream the tune now, and head below to check out the Callum Scott-Dyson-directed claymation video.

Singer Stefan Babcock comments on the track and video, noting, “I got the idea for the song when I was at my partner’s cottage and her cousin got stung by a bee and his whole head started to swell up. His wife, although she was concerned, also thought it was pretty hilarious and started making fun of him even as they were headed to the hospital. He ended up being totally fine, but it was just funny to watch him freaking out and her just lighting him up at the same time. It reminded me of all the times I’ve started panicking for whatever reason and was convinced I was dying and the world was ending and no one would take me seriously. In retrospect, I always find those overreactions pretty funny. So we wrote a goofy song about being a hypochondriac and tried to make our guitars sound like bees at the beginning of it.”
