Matt Pryor and Eric "Mean" Melin in "Kinda Go To Pieces" video
Matt Pryor

Get Up Kids frontman Matt Pryor released his newest solo album, Wrist Slitter, late last year via Equal Vision/Rory Records, and he's just made a video for one of its more Get Up Kids-sounding songs, "Kinda Go To Pieces." The video starts with a short acoustic guitar/vocal intro by Bob Nanna of Braid (which originally appeared as the intro to "Before My Tongue Becomes a Sword," also on Matt's new album), and then stars 2013 Air Guitar World Champion Eric "Mean" Melin, who follows Matt around against his will, providing him with air guitar solos. I won't give too much away, but it's got a happy ending. The video makes its premiere in this post, and you can watch it below.

Matt's got some dates coming up (unfortunately none in NYC), including a show in his home state of Kansas, where he'll be performing with an ensemble of horns, strings and more, and recording it for a future release. The rest of his dates are in Europe, and all are listed, along with the new video, below...

It's unfortunate that no one really cares.

I'm from Europe, and Bob Nanna is still the man! ;> ...and the song is great, need to get Matt's solo album in full.

Pretty sure it's a D-A-F#m-E progression. Sometimes using the open forms, then on the pre-chorus he plays power chords from A5 up to the 9th fret F#5.
