You Have To Play PUP’s New Video, Old Wounds, Right Now

And we do mean PLAY the video – this isn’t your garden-variety music promo, more a choose-your-own-adventure game.

Canadian punks PUP have a new video for Old Wounds, a track from the foursome’s 2016 LP for SideOneDummy, The Dream Is Over.

Kinda don’t want to spoil this one. It’s best that you just watch it. Well, play it. Play it, to play it. You’ll see what we mean. 

(Nb, this is best played on your desktop, or the YouTube mobile app.)

Says singer and guitarist Stefan Babcock of the video… the game… the interactive experience: This is one of the craziest things we’ve done as a band. I’m so proud of this thing, and am absolutely convinced that Jeremy (Schaulin-Rioux, the video’s director) is a total savant.”

Case you’re wondering: there are 28 different ways to die in the video, and only four ways in which the band members can survive. Choose wisely, and good luck!
