The Get Up Kids released Kicker, a new EP and their first new material in seven years, on June 8 via Polyvinyl Records! The band will tour with a stop at 9:30 Club on Sunday, July 15. You can win tickets to go with Parklife DC!
The second single from the new record, “Better This Way,” received a video debut from Fader last month. Jim Suptic, who sings the track, said the song is “about making a choice.”
“A choice that you think is right at the time, but then it turns out there really isn’t a right choice. Every decision has consequences good or bad. The best we can hope for is being able to live with the fallout. Relationships can be hard and need to be worked on. That goes for husband, wife, friend, family, etc. I think this song is hopeful, some might not see it that way. A glass filled to the middle is either half full or half empty. Sometimes it’s just nice to have something to drink,” Jim said.
