The Get Up Kids

There Are Rules starts off with an eerie, slow, tantalizing introduction, and immediately you are wondering where the pop punk boys of the 90’s went. Thirty seconds of suspense and your immersed into heart-pounding drums and the unmistakable distorted indie guitar riff.  The first song entitled “Tithe”, is an interesting blend of gritty vocals and a lead line that cuts through the mix.

All in all, this album should really be listened to. At first I was a little weary about their new chosen identity. In the end, it really grew on me. I would definitely recommend you give it a listen and decide for yourself. This is honesty, this is real, and this is music.
