EP Review: PUP – This Place Sucks Ass

PUP made waves with Morbid Stuff last year; their award-winning third studio album pretty much made it onto every end of year list, coming close to topping several as Album of the Year, and deservedly so. They had leaned further into that off kilter indie punk vibe...
