For the past year and a half I have felt a complete void in the punk rock scene. I am an avid pop punk/punk fan and have been searching for bands that are continuing that sound in the face of unpopularity and being forgotten. Where pop punk once dominated the radio and the charts it has now been limited to aficionados and hardcore fans.
A lot of the bands I came across didn’t capture my attention with their adolescent lyrics and non-aggressive style. But finally after a scour on the internet I came across Canadian band PUP. The band specializes in fast angry punk and amazing riffs. Check out their live performance of “DVP” above.
