All grown up but still with adventure in their hearts, The Get Up Kids, from Kansas City, Missouri are keeping alive the dreams of the late 90s and 2000s. Their latest single, ‘I’m Sorry’, is from their new EP, ‘Kicker’, the follow up to 2011s ‘There Are Rules’.
Comprising Jim Suptic on guitar, Rob Pope on bass, James Dewees on keyboards, and Ryan Pope on the drums, The Get Up Kids were at the forefront of the second wave of emo bands in the late 90s, and were way ahead of their time. They’re now set to win over a new generation, with ‘I’m Sorry’.
The video opens with a kid being pushed to the ground – other kids have their days ruined, and it turns out that it’s The Get Up Kids who are doing it all, albeit by accident. When it turns out they’re performing, the kids decide take out their own revenge, the end being an all out party with both sides enjoying it equally. It’s post punk fun with an uptempo song and a great video directed by Shawn Brackbill.
