Published Apr 02, 2019The Get Up Kids are returning with Problems — the band's first new full-length album in eight years. To give us another taste, they've shared a new video for the album's "The Problem Is Me."
In a statement, the Get Up Kids' Matt Pryor explained, "The song is about a friend's second divorce and about taking responsibility in a relationship. For me, the song is about self care. Acknowledging personal faults and trying to work on them."
As for the video, it was filmed on Super 8 and directed Shawn Brackbill.
In a statement of his own, Brackbill said, "We were very happy with how those turned out but wanted to do something different this time around. The song is upbeat and fast-paced so we wanted to make a video that matches its energy. I have been working with the New York Times on some dance pieces and wanted to incorporate that into my video work here. We showcased several different genres, performed by some very talented dancers who are all friends of my daughter's ballet teacher."
You can watch the final results of "The Problem Is Me" below.
Problems is set to arrive May 10 through Dine Alone/Polyvinyl.
