View tour dates here and then click on over to Amazon to download “Weightless”, if you haven’t already, as City and Colour is featured on their Artists on the Rise for November. [...]
Getting the news that you are going to be able to interview a member of your favorite band is almost more scary than exciting. I mean, you don’t want to look like an ass in front of someone who inspires you every day! So writing questions was nerve-racking to say the least, but more importantly [...]
Matt Pryor is a busy man. Many know him as a singer/guitarist from the Get Up Kids, who have spent the last few years celebrating their reunion with a new album and plenty of tour dates. In addition to the Get Up Kids, he has also performed in the New Amsterdams, the family friendly Terrible Twos, and as a solo artist. When he isn’t on the road, Pryor is spending time with his family and taking care of his three kids. In the last 10-15 years, Pryor has released around 15 albums and has still found the time to be a contributing member of his Lawrence community. Currently, Matt Pryor is preparing for the release of May Day, the second album of his solo effort.
