Frontman Matt Pryor says recording ‘Rally Round the Fool’, one of the first compositions for its parent album ‘These Are Rules’, took time to craft; “Lyrically, it’s mostly about independence. Freeing yourself from relying too much on others for better or for worse.”

 

 

The vocalist and guitarist comments the track’s B-side, ‘Past Is Past’, offers a chance for the band to experiment; “[It’s] trying to find that balance between being creative but not going completely off the deep end. The front half and the back half are almost two different songs united by a common melody.”

 

The Get Up Kids are touring Europe during the autumn, taking in two dates in the UK:

 

OCTOBER

 

4 – Leeds, Cockpit 2

5 – London, Underworld

 

Pryor says he is excited at the prospect of the UK shows; “Good friends, good beer, good shows… what’s not to love?” Tickets for the gigs are available via the Kililive website.
