The Get Up kids announce new EP and release first new song since 2011

The Get Up Kids have announced that they will be releasing a new EP, Kicker, on May 11th. It is their first collection of new music since 2011, when they released There Are Rules, and can currently be pre-ordered here.

Speaking about Kicker‘s concept, the Get Up Kids guitarist/vocalist Jim Suptic said that “You always look back in rose-colored glasses, and I always remember when this band was really struggling and we were selling our CD collections to pay our rent and that sucked at the time, but looking back that was an amazing time, that was so much fun. There was no pressure or anything.”

In addition to the announcement, the band have released the first single off of Kicker. You can stream “Maybe” at the top of this post.

That’s not all, though, as the Get Up Kids also announced their summer tour plans. They will be heading out on a headlining tour starting on June 14th in Dallas Texas and head out west before briefly wrapping up on June 30th in Denver, Colorado. The band is not on break for long, as they tour the east coast beginning on July 11th in Boston, Massachusetts before concluding on July 21st in St.Louis, Missouri.
