The Get Up Kids have announced a North American tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their seminal emo album Something to Write Home About. The trek takes place late summer into the autumn, and joining them on the run are Smoking Popes. See the full list of tour dates below.

After a set at Four Chord Music Fest on June 23, the Get Up Kids will play Something to Write Home About in full at each show, starting in Dallas, Texas, on August 23. The band will make stops across the United States and Canada on through October. The run comes to an end with a performance at Best Friends Forever Fest, which also features sets by Bright Eyes, Sunny Day Real Estate, Cap’n Jazz, Unwound, the Jesus Lizard, and the Dismemberment Plan, among others.

The Get Up Kids originally broke up back in 2005, but they reunited three years later. Since then, the band has regularly performed live and gone on tour. Their first album as a reunited group arrived in 2011, There Are Rules, and was followed in 2019 with Problems.
