The Get Up Kids have shared a second song from their forthcoming Kicker EP, which arrives June 8th via Dine Alone in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The EP will be the band’s first release in seven years.
“Better This Way,” according to guitarist/vocalist Jim Suptic, is “about making a choice. A choice that you think is right at the time, but then it turns out there really isn’t a right choice. Every decision has consequences good or bad. The best we can hope for is being able to live with the fallout. Relationships can be hard and need to be worked on. That goes for husband, wife, friend, family, etc. I think this song is hopeful, some might not see it that way. A glass filled to the middle is either half full or half empty. Sometimes it’s just nice to have something to drink.”
