Matt Pryor

Matt Pryor and James Dewees, both of veteran emo band The Get Up Kids, are teaming up to release a collaborative three-song EP on September 30 via Equal Vision imprint Rory Records. The EP's first single, "Failing You," sounds more like a Get Up Kids tune than the folkier stuff Matt was doing with his solo project and The New Amsterdams, and it's a welcome post-reunion endeavor following TGUK's very good 2010 comeback album, These Are Rules. The new song makes its premiere in this post, and it can be streamed, along with the album artwork, below.

Matt is also releasing a new solo LP, Wrist Slitter, on November 12 via Rory Records, and this December he'll be heading out on an acoustic tour with Max Bemis (Rory labelhead and Say Anything frontman), Perma, Sherri DuPree-Bemis, and Merriment. That tour hits NYC on December 12 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, along with the track stream and artwork, below...

For fans of Pryor's podcast, this song premiered earlier this year, spring-ish. Dying to hear more! Glad the release is finally hear.

About 1 month or two ago I watched a chick fronted band called "RIVR" on pink couch. At the time I also found some YouTube videos of their songs. Now I can't any existence of them anywhere on the internet. What happened to them?

While I do love this album to death, it's still ultimately to blame for inspiring all those shitty emo-pop boy bands like All American Rejects and Fall Out Boy. But they didn't intend to do that when they wrote this so I forgive them. I guess.
