“I acted the shit out of that” – Lou Barlow

A Wednesday treat just for you. Today The Get Up Kids released a new music video for their track "Lou Barlow" starring Lou Barlow himself. Directed by Kerstin Ebert and filmed at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, the meta humorous new video arrives as the band begins their fall headline tour.

“We kept joking how hilarious it would be if we could get Lou Barlow to be in the video for ‘Lou Barlow,’” explains Matt Pryor.

“It was absolute luck that we both happened to be in New York on the same day. When he agreed, we were thrilled. When we saw how much he put into the video, we were floored. He was amazing.”

Watch the video below, taken from the band's full-length album, Problems out now.

The band's US tour dates include support from Kevin Devine, The Whiffs, Hembree, and SONTALK. In 2020 The Get Up Kids will join Dashboard Confessional on their 20th celebration run.
