The Get Up Kids Shelve EP Series, Prep Full-Length Instead

It's hard for the Get Up Kids to make up their mind. First, they break up, then they get back together. They announce plans to release an EP, then decide to make that a series of three EPs. Now, in a turn of events that will have fans of the emo pioneers drooling, they're scrapping that three-EP plan and focusing on a full-length instead.


 "I think we've scrapped the multiple EP idea in lieu of doing a full-length album instead," vocalist/guitarist Matt Pryor told Alter the Press recently. "We are working on it, as we are putting out an album in January/February, or in the spring at the latest."

The guys did get around to releasing the first EP, Simple Science, but it looks as if that will be it until the full-length hits shelves. No other details about the new material are out there yet, except for this: Pryor said that the band have 11 new songs that did not go on the four-song Simple Science release.
