FFO; Loud guitar punk with passion
PUP are 4 Tornoto punks who play loud music, very well. They’ve been recently getting amazing press from everyone who listens and rightly so. Their debut self-titled has been out in the homeland for a little while now, but for the rest of the world the planned release is April 8th via Side One Dummy. You can listen and download one track from their record titled ‘Reservoir' for free, so, you know, do it already. Jump on the hype train because for once, the band is worth it.
