Kansas quartet The Get Up Kids stray from their emo-punk roots on fifth full-length album ‘There Are Rules’, which is scheduled for release on 28 Feb via the band’s own imprint, Quality Hill Records.

Commenting on the band’s newfound ethos and recording process, frontman Matt Pryor says: “The album came together really organically. We’d throw out an idea and if it didn’t work after 30 minutes we’d scrap it and move on to another one. We all wrote together really spontaneously and then fleshed it out in the studio”.
