The Get Up Kids announce Kicker EP; listen to new single “Maybe” now + US tour dates!
Posted 04/05/2018

Last week we shared the happy news that The Get Up Kids had officially joined the PV fam. This week we get to announce the band's first new release in *seven years,* plus a coast to coast headlining tour!! Kicker will arrive in all its glory June 8th. Check out the lyric video for the debut single, “Maybe.” SPIN already said it "It's a proper statement of reemergence from one of the most enduring bands to emerge of the early-aughts rock club scene." Yeaaaah buddy!

Pre-order your mailorder exclusive Early Bird copy on 180-Gram Pink/Gray Starburst from our E-store. The name of the four song EP is a reference to the band’s foosball obsession, which dates back to their first European tour, and is still played vehemently in their current practice space. Put that in your pocket for Emo Trivia Night!

The Get Up Kids will hit the road this summer with Casket Lottery, Racquet Club, and Ageist in tow. Snag those fan club presale tickets right now. Public onsale begins this Friday, April 6th @ 12pm EST.

And now we leave you with a quote from the great Matt Pryor regarding signing to Polyvinyl:

"We were fans of Polyvinyl from way back. I think when the idea was floated that maybe we could work together it was really a no-brainer. It’s not rocket surgery, they're a great label full of cool people who actually care about their bands. What’s not to dig?"

Matt Pryor digs us. BRB, going to go cry forever...
