We love hearing about times on the road - it really is what we live for - Life on the Road in one way or another. So we are happy to bring you a series of tour blogs by new Family members PUP while they venture across North America for the next month or so... Enjoy!
Our first-ever North American headline tour started in Minneapolis - one of America's most Canadian cities. People there like to drink. We ended up at Grumpy's Bar doing 2.5oz shots and ensuring that day two of the tour would start with a blinding hangover. And in the shadow of a big fake giraffe.
From Minneapolis, we headed north back into Canada for our first show in Winnipeg, MB in over a year. We played a run-down hotel bar called The Windsor with hourly rooms upstairs. While loading in, we saw a guy picking up cigarette butts, checking the parking meters for change, and picking beer cans out of the trash - all the while having a lively conversation on a cellphone - before heading upstairs to the rooms.
Touring in Canada is amazing because there is a ton of natural beauty but holy shit are the drives long. From Winnipeg, we headed to Saskatoon, SK - a healthy 9 hour drive - to play a show at a weird texmex venue called Amigo's. It was the first time we've ever played Saskatoon where there hasn't been a foot of snow on the ground.
Saskatoon to Calgary is another eight hours in the van. However the show made up for all van cabin fever. It's been a full year since we played the Canadian provinces east of our home province Ontario, and the crowds were rabid. Smashed beer, blood, sweat, and singalongs were the themes of Calgary's show.
Monday night was Vancouver and we got shitfaced, plain and simple. There are no photos. It was pure drinking.
So that's week one! More to come!

We are on a roll with great video premieres over here! And are super excited to bring you Violent Soho's here right meow...
In just a few weeks, Australia’s Violent Soho will see the U.S. release of their groundbreaking new album Hungry Ghost through SideOneDummy Records on September 30. The undeniable grunge gods have unleashed several new songs from the record and today they share one more— “Dope Calypso,” the slow burner intro track off Hungry Ghost, sets the stage for the record with its hypnotic grooves, lush guitar tones and droney melodies.
Check out this rad new video now!
Produced by Bryce Moorhead (“the Steve Albini of Brisbane”), the songs that wound up on Hungry Ghost (originally released by IOHYOU in Australia) are bound to excite the masses here in the states, too. Whether it's the throat-tearing chorus of "Covered in Chrome" or the rhythm-rich earworm "Saramona Said", the album is loaded with unforgettable hooks and sing-a-longs worthy of rock's gnarliest moments from down under.

Congratulations to Daniel Ricciardo. Of all the racing drivers in the world, yesterday he was awarded the coveted Lorenzo Bandini Trophy for the driver who has impressed with speed, on-track achievements, character and approach to the sport. Every F1 world champion for the last 15 years have won this award, many prior to winning the world championship.
