Published Apr 05, 2018After announcing they had signed to Polyvinyl late last month, the Get Up Kids have lifted the curtain on their debut effort for the label, marking their first new music since 2011.
The band are set to release a four-track EP titled Kicker through Polyvinyl on June 8. You can watch a lyric video for EP opener "Maybe" in the player below.
The Get Up Kids' last full-length album was 2011's There Are Rules.
The EP is named not only for the band's obsession with foosball, but the overarching theme of all four tracks. As guitarist/vocalist Jim Suptic put it in a statement, "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."
Kicker is available for pre-order here.
The Get Up Kids have also mapped out a coast-to-coast headlining tour of the United States, and you can find the full schedule below.
