Doing a cover song is always a huge risk and when you're covering a sentimental iconic emo band like The Get Up Kids, you better make sure you do the song justice. Chicago's Farraday automatically has a unique advantage, utilizing the strong vocals of its powerful frontwoman, Aubyn. Listen to their cover of "Action & Action" in the replies which comes from A Tribute To The Get Up Kids coming out on Pacific Ridge Records.

I recently wrote an article about the joy of emo music, my passion for The Get Up Kids' Something To Write Home About and a few sentimental things about believing in your dreams and whatnot. Have a read of it here.
That's only present in you because you're 14 years old. For some people, 14 is the age that they retreat in to their basements for the rest of their lives to make an existence out of Mountain Dew and 4Chan. For others, 14 means finding new bands and discovering the beautiful world of the genres that Billboard doesn't cover. For me, 14 meant discovering The Get Up Kids. Something To Write Home About, to be precise.

The Get Up Kids have sent in a message dispelling the rumor that they are breaking up, which originated from a misinterpreted facebook posting.
Message From the BandThe Get Up Kids are not breaking up after this European tour, as has been erroneously announced in some areas of the press.
