Emo forebears -- and the most famous band from Kansas City in the past few decades -- the Get Up Kids
are releasing their fifth full-length album on January 25, 2011.
It's called There Are Rules, which has a nice, sturdy ring to it, and it's out on their newly formed label Quality Hill Records, named after the downtown KC neighborhood. (Tracklist after the jump.) Why not release it through longtime label Vagrant Records?
Says Pryor in a press release: "We had a really great relationship with Vagrant but we felt that with the proverbial rebirth of the band we wanted to start our own label. Do everything ourselves like we did in the beginning." New local label? We'll see. Tracklist:
2. Regent's Court
3. Shatter Your Lungs
6. Rally 'Round the Fool
7. Better Lie
8. Keith Case
9. The Widow Paris
11. When It Dies
