The Get Up Kids Share Video For, “The Problem Is Me,” Announce U.S. Summer Tour

The Get Up Kids are back and released the music video for the new single, “The Problem Is Me,” the second preview of their forthcoming first album in eight years, Problems (Polyvinyl Records), set to drop May 10th, 2019. The joyfully swinging, piano-heavy track explores the notion of embracing your own romantic dysfunction.

Matt Pryor explains, “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.”

The video was filmed on Super 8 and is director Shawn Brackbill’s third collaboration with the band. Of the video Brackbill says, “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 withThe 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.”
