The Get Up Kids’ headline U.S. summer tour for their first album in eight years, Problems (Polyvinyl Record Co.), kicks off tomorrow night, July 10th, at Indianapolis’ Hi-Fi. To celebrate, the band today premiered the new Shawn Brackbill-directed video for “Salina” via a live YouTube stream and Q&A with fans.
Brackbill, who also directed the band’s recent video for “The Problem Is Me,” explains, "We had initially been interested in this location for ‘The Problem Is Me’ video but had some trouble getting access. The day before we shot that video, I was able to book the Lawrence Kansas Train Station, a mid century depot, for later that week. I gave a listen to ‘Salina’ that night and the train depot made even more sense with that track. We shot around 25 rolls of Super 8 film for two videos over two days."
