Its been over ten years since five kids from Kansas City, USA crashed the party of every punk-leaning teen worldwide with their breathless hooks and feverish intensity. In the blink of an eye The Get Up Kids were suddenly the darlings of the underground, cementing their significance with 1999s seminal Something To Write Home About... "Its original, powerful, aggressive, heartfelt... it is simply the greatest pop punk album ever written." - Sputnik Music

After famously calling it a day in March 2005, The Get Up Kids stunned the music world in November 2008 by announcing their reformation. Their comeback album There Are Rules challenges the foundations of a scene they helped build and it "truly stands out in the members collective catalogs as a completely unique entity, and one that should be viewed as nothing less than an absolutely stunning success" - Alternative Press.

Visiting Australian shores this August, one of the worlds most beloved bands The Get Up Kids will be bringing that same attitude and depth, but more adhesive and endearing than before, "All in all, they are one band that should not be missed at any opportunity." - Faster Louder

Sat 6 Aug - Metro Theatre, Sydney
Sun 7 Aug - Billboard The Venue, Melbourne
