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.
