Saves The Dayreturned today with “Kerouac & Cassady” – the second single from their highly-anticipated new album 9. “Kerouac & Cassady” is the perfect soundtrack to a Saturday night drive. Each lyric is a callback to a memory from the band’s two decades accumulating memories on tour and even the song’s title is a nod to the beatnik classic On The Road. It’s a propulsive rock anthem that triggers the sort of adrenaline rush that convinces the listener that anything is possible when they walk out their door on a Saturday night. You can listen to the record now on YouTube, Spotify or most of your favorite other streaming sites. Along with the release of “Kerouac & Cassady”, Saves The Day also are excited to announce the second leg of their North American tour running Feb 15 through March 8.
Saves The Day will be releasing 9, their first new album in five years, on October 26th via seminal rock label Equal Vision Records. 9 will be SavesThe Day’s ninth studio record and contains nine songs that, when listened to together, tells the story of the band from the perspective of its founder, Chris Conley. The album offers this first ever autobiographical look into the band’s history in a way that is as exhaustive as it is poetic and makes the listener a part of the songwriting process. As Conley puts it “This album is the story of Saves The Day and my own personal journey through life, which all unfolded as my relationship with music progressed”. On the surface, 9 chronicles the epic story of a group of kids from New Jersey who realized their dream and became an international sensation. On a deeper level, it shows how Conley “woke up” and became aware of his own consciousness through his relationship with music and the unbelievable adventures it has inspired since he formed the act in 1997.
“The Get Up Kids are historically good at making EPs. The beloved Kansas rock band, whose twangy shout-a-longs first gained steam in the late ’90s, during the waning years of emo’s Midwest-centric second wave, have put out three to date. The Red Letter Day EP, released as a 10-inch just a few months before Something To Write Home About took the group from underground stars to the forefront of an entire movement, might be one of my all-time favorite examples of the format. If you’ve ever listened to “Mass Pike” on the Mass Pike, you’ll understand what I’m getting at.
And now, in 2018, they’ve got another one. Kicker arrives June 8, seven years since their last official release as a band. The four-song project is also their first for Polyvinyl, and it finds the band — particularly co-songwriters Matt Pyror and Jim Suptic — setting new, grown-up concerns about marriage and family life to the kind of upbeat and melodically assured guitar music that they’ve always been known for.” – FADER
