The band’s first in-depth profile this year finds guitarists/vocalists Matt Pryor and Jim Suptic discussing the making of their forthcoming LP, Problems, with Grammy Award-winning producer Peter Katis.

"Problems is a validation and revamp of Get Up Kids 2.0, honoring the indie-leaning sound of 2004’s Guilt Show and There Are Rules with a stronger sense of confidence and melody."

Out May 10th, Problems is available for pre-order now in the Polyvinyl Store. Snag a limited edition deluxe Early Bird on 180-Gram Pink/Light Blue Starburst - just look at that beauty above!

"Waking Up Alone" is the third preview of The Get Up Kids’ new albumm following the videos for "The Problem Is Me" and "Satellite." The band – Suptic, Pryor, Rob Pope (bass), Ryan Pope (drums), and James Dewees (keys) – kick off a European tour next week ahead of their summer U.S. tour, which includes two nights in NYC at Bowery Ballroom on July 25th and Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 26th.
