The Great Escape - Music & More

After 25 years, The Get Up Kids' classic second album, Something to Write Home About, is still recognizable as the same electrifying, scrappy album it was upon release, but also transformed by time into one of the most seminal records of the band's scene. To celebrate the album's 25th anniversary, Polyvinyl Records is thrilled to announce a special deluxe reissue. The album has been meticulously remastered from the original tapes and will be paired with a slew of bonus material, including rare demo versions of multiple songs from the album as well as never-before released rarities from the era. Originally released in September of 1999, Something to Write Home About has been established as an important late-millennium rock-and-roll document; a convergence of power pop, alternative rock, and punk, it provided the parameters for emo's Midwest-centered second wave. To support the release, the band will also perform the album in full throughout a lengthy North American headline tour later this year.
