"Pryor is a master songwriter...front and center with his guitar, singing his heart out..."
- Consequence Of Sound
On November 11th, 2013, Pryor is set to release his third solo album Wrist Slitter, the follow up album to 2012's self-released May Day.
Though best known for his work as the primary singer-songwriter for The Get Up Kids, Pryor has a vast musical catalog including his folk-tinged group The New Amsterdams, children's music project Terrible Twos and indie-rock super group Lasorda - featuring Nate Harold (fun.), Mike Standberg (Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band), and Dustin Kinsey (The New Amsterdams). Never one to slow down, Pryor also contributes to Chicago start-up Downwrite - a website that enables artists to create fan-commissioned songs and connect with fans on a personal and creative level - and performs online concerts for StageIt - an online platform dedicated to monetized live streamed performances. In 2012, Pryor started his own Nothing To Write Home About podcast wherein he interviews fellow musicians and industry friends such as Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra), Chris Conley (Saves The Day), Kevin Devine, Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), and more.
This winter will see Pryor on the road in support of the new album with label mates Max Bemis (Say Anything), Sherri DuPree Bemis (Eisley), Perma, and Merriment. Dates included below.
