Last year when the Kicker E.P. from The Get Up Kids came out, we were impressed how it sounded like the band without being too nostalgic. Now ahead of their new album Problems coming in May, the Kansas City emo band is back with a new track and a new video for the song “Satellite,” and it’s pretty impressive.
The video features the day in the life of a box man, and it’s pretty cute and funny, alongside live footage of the band performing. The song is a return to form, fevered and energetic in sound like all great music from the band. The song has a nice build and really showcases the strengths of the band while giving your ears some definite candy in the process.
You can stream “Satellite” on all streaming sites, you can watch the video above or on YouTube, and you can purchase the track digitally from all online retailers. Problems is available for pre-order directly from Polyvinyl Records ahead of it’s release date of May 10. The Get Up Kids will be on tour starting March 13 at Mohawk in Austin, TX for SXSW until May 26 in Hatfield, U.K. for Slam Dunk Festival South. A complete listing of their tour dates can be accessed here.
