    The album was recorded and mixed by Interpol/The National collaborator Peter Katis, and it features contributions from Illuminati Hotties' Sarah Tuzdin, NOBRO's Kathryn McCaughey, Casper Skulls' Mel St-Pierre, and Remo Drive's Erik Paulson, along with the addition of horns, synths, piano, and more.

    "You can hear the band start to fall off the cliff, and because of that, I think this record is our truest and most genuine to date," said frontman Stefan Babcock via press release. "There is nothing more PUP than a slow and inevitable descent into self-destruction."

    "There’s only so many times you can write a song about how much you hate yourself before you write a song about how f***ing good you are at hating yourself," he continues. "I wanted to write about the horrible state of the world, but through a very specific and personal lens. It’s a lot of me trying to articulate my own coping with existential dread, hopelessness, and what I’ve called ‘Grim Reaping���—which is to me, the idea that we are all reaping what we sow, and right now we’re sowing some pretty f***ed up s***."

    The album includes "Waiting" (but not "Kill Something"), as well as the just-released single "Robot Writes A Love Song," which was "written from the perspective of a computer being overwhelmed unto death by actual human emotions." It drifts away from PUP's usual high-energy punk and channels early/mid 2000s style lo-fi bedroom pop, but it still has that trademark PUP-ness.

    KTT fw the new PUP singles like that?

    Not into this first song but the second one’s okay. Cool that the two songs sound so different from one another, though.

    Nah. Can’t remember what album they were on when I first heard about them but it had to be like 2013 or 2014. Have they been doing more electronic stuff for a minute now?
