Earlier today, The Get Up Kids announced the release of a new EP, Kicker, which serves as a precursor to a full-length record due later this year. The four-track EP marks the first release from the band since 2011’s reunion LP, There Are Rules, and marks something of a return to form for the alternative rock veterans. In a new interview with Kyle Meredith With…, frontman Matt Pryor discusses the impetus for the new EP and album. He also reveals why he isn’t a fan of the “emo” label and what it’s like to be a professional rock musician who is also the father of three. Take a listen below, and listen to more episodes of Kyle Meredith With… here.
