The Get up Kids


I pay close attention to what people search on my site. One of the most searched items over the past month is “The Get up Kids”. To confirm the suspiscion, the answer is most likely. I did see Reggie and the Full Effect play their final show, and I did ask James Deweese if the rumors of a Get up Kids reunion were true, he said he could not legally talk about it. Why would legality be involved if there was not a plan? James is planning albums for both, Fluxuation and Common Denominator and plans to tour for both of these releases. He is only working on a Fluxuation album now though. Unfortunately Reggie is finished, James stated “I just don’t have time for Reggie anymore man.” I appreciate his honesty and his stand. James’ lack of time for Reggie also points towards TGUK getting back together. There have been hints on multiple websites of The Get up Kids reunion. I have been a fan from early on and I hope the rumor is true. Matt Pryor is a very talented individual and when you put him back together with the talent of the Pope brothers and Jim Suptic this makes an incredible line-up. The added talent of James on keyboards makes the Get up Kids an unstoppable force, so Im pretty positive there will be not only a reunion tour but a new album as well. I hope this helps to clarify any suspiscion you have.
