The Scoop: Emo rock outfit The Get Up Kids has announced that they will be re-releasing both their debut full length album On A Wire and third full length On A Wire (a collection rarities, b-sides and covers) on vinyl. The efforts are both due out on September 17th via Workhorse Music. A first pressing of 1000 180-gram of each effort are now available to be pre-ordered here.
The Spin: When On A Wire was released back in 2002 on Vagrant Records, Rolling Stone commented on the record saying, “On a Wire quivers with the anxieties that must have arisen as the Get Up Kids left behind what originally made them. Straining vocals, racing tempos and walls of distortion give way to softer singing, spacious guitars and prominent keyboards . . . The Get Up Kids dig deeper into themselves. What they find is often subtle, less visceral but far more tender.”
