He’s not just another dumb cluck…
new solo album in the works, bolstered by Kickstarter campaign (details below).
Check out the video for unreleased song “Pictures,
Records & Ring”.
Adding to a busy 2011, Get Up Kids’ front man Matt Pryor has announced that he has started work on a new solo album, titled May Day. The title May Day comes from Pryor’s plan to write, record and complete work
on the album, all during the month of May. The album, a follow up to his
2008 solo release Confidence Man,
is pencilled for release later this year.
Echoing the DIY path of the Get Up Kids, Pryor has
pledged to release the record independently, and has extended this concept one
step further by looking to crowd-funding solutions for the creation of May Day.
To help finance the project, Pryor has turned to
site Kickstarter.com, asking his fans to pledge
in return for various incentives including, but not limited to, vinyl test
pressings, exclusive t-shirts and screen-printed posters, the guitars played on
the record and an unreleased solo record dubbed Still There’s A Light.
There’s A Light will only be available to fans who contribute to the
Kickstarter campaign. As a taster, you can watch a clip of Pryor playing “Pictures,
Records & Ring” – a song from the unreleased album – below. Contribute
