PUP 'Sleep In The Heat' by Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux
Almost three years down the road from their brilliant, myth-making origin story in Guilt Trip, PUP are back with longtime collaborator Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux and the original cast for a continuation of the story.
With Finn Wolfhard gaining a considerable level of fame since the Guilt Trip video (in case you've been living under a rock, he has a major part in Netflix smash hit Stranger Things) so you'd be forgiven for thinking this sequel was just capitalising on his popularity. The truth is that the cast, director, and band are clearly just enthusiastic about making great videos, as Wolfhard himself pointed out in an interview with Vulture.
This clip explores the life of young PUP as they tour the country, pick up a companion along the way. It turns out to be a heartbreaking ode to the pets that the band have loved and lost - an almost universal feeling, tugging at your heartstrings.
"Three years after the band-as-wolfpack origin story we did for PUP's Guilt Trip video, it seemed only fitting to bring back all of the original young PUP cast (including Finn Wolfhard - now well known as Mike Wheeler from Stranger Things, and the upcoming 'IT' reboot, as the untamed Young Stefan) to tell the (mostly!) true story of lost love that's at the centre of Sleep In The Heat.
"Sleep In The Heat is the seventh PUP video I've directed or co-directed. I'm pretty grateful to get to keep making these with/for my friends in the band."
