The Get Up Kids: There Are Rules

The Get Up Kids are now the comeback kids. After splitting in 2005, the Kansas punk rockers reconvened in the studio in 2009. The 2010 EP Simple Science did quite well and now there is a new full-length. On There Are Rules it's business as usual: dense, shifting rhythms picking a fight with the guitar and keyboards. It feels bit overcrowded. Think The Stranglers and Green Day recording in the same room.

Recorded mostly live on of analog 2" tape There Are Rules sounds angry and muffled - like hearing the next door neighbours having a shouting match.
