Matt Pryor (The New Amsterdams, ex-Get Up Kids) announces his first solo tour that kicks off in Minneapolis on August 6th. The first 13 dates are co-headliner's with Chris Conley of Saves The Day, followed by headlining dates across the southern and eastern US with Kevin Devine.

"This is the first full tour I've done in five years and I'm excited to get out and play for people," says Pryor. "Being out with good friends like Chris and Kevin should make for really fun shows."

A limited number of tickets have been held for fans and will be available through an exclusive Ducat King presale that began yesterday, Wednesday, June 11, 2008 at 1:00PM local time.

Confidence Man (Vagrant, 07/29/08) is an intimate collection of acoustic songs that showcase Pryor's skillful songwriting at its bare, emotive minimum. The 15 tracks were self-produced and self-recorded and encompass a long span of Pryor's career. The oldest, "Dear Lover," originated in 1995 and appears on this record in its third incarnation. The newest songs, like "A Totally New Year," "Only" and "Lovers Who Have Lost Their Cause," were conceived only a few months ago.

"I've always wanted to do something that was quieter and acoustic and could be played by one person," said Pryor about the impetus behind the new record. "I wanted to go out and play shows alone. I just want to have my little folk moment."

The Lawrence, KS native will also be performing on select dates with his children's music group, The Terrible Twos, in support of their upcoming release, Jerzy The Giant (07/29/08, Vagrant).

Into It. Over It.
Into It. Over It.
For years I had played, written, recorded and performed in bands. The Progress, Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start, Map The Growth, Stay Ahead Of The Weather and Damiera have been a few.

From September 2007 to September 2008, I wrote (and recorded) one song each week for an entire year. This project (which was called 52 Weeks) was available online weekly during that year. Since it's completion, Chris at No Sleep Records approached me about releasing the record. We remixed it, mastered it and (with the help of Brian Mietz) put together an amazing layout. The 2xCD was released on June 23rd, 2009.

I've since relocated to Chicago. Written twelve songs documenting anecdotes an travels I've had in Twelve Towns. These songs will be released over a series of split 7" records during 2010/2011.

I've most recently recorded 5 new songs which were released on a split LP with my best friend KOJI. These 5 songs are about 5 stories taking place in 5 Chicago neighborhoods.

2011 will bring a new full length LP on No Sleep Records.
