The Get Up Kids Announce Tour and Kicker EP, Release “Maybe”

“Maybe you should say,” sings The Get Up Kids frontman Matt Pryor, on the band’s new single, “after all that we’ve been through/that there’s still more work to do.” It’s a proper statement of reemergence from one of the most enduring bands to emerge of the early-aughts rock club scene. Last week, the emo/pop-punk lynchpins announced a new partnership with lionized Illinois label Polyvinyl. Today, the Lawerence, Kansas-formed band officially announced their first release in 7 years, a high-octane EP titled Kicker. The first single, definitely titled “Maybe,” sounds like golden-era TGUK, with Pryor pushing his vocals to familiar heights. Taken a listen below.
