about

“What do we have left? Seems everything’s been done to death.” Sung from the gut and straight from the heart, the powerful opening line from KID YOU NOT's full-length debut Never A Dull Movement fittingly questions the current state of the music business. And from that moment on, this Florida-based punk outfit answers back with an exhilarating, electrifying, full-on assault that will leave you wanting more. From the first moment of this record, you can feel its brilliance, purity and DIY spirit. Combining new school and old school influences (ranging from Iron Chic, Latterman and Red City Radio to 90’s punk rock heroes Hot Water Music, Jawbreaker and Millencolin) with an exciting new sensibility, Never A Dull Movement just never slows its fury of gruff vocals, melodic harmonies, pounding drums and infectious choruses. It's impossible to deny how engaging and downright fun this record is...the kind of record you turn up and sing along to at the top of your lungs with your fists in the air. An album about love, loss and the feeling of being lost (and not knowing exactly how you got there), it’s also about moving on, accepting the things in life that you can't change and reflecting on the roads that brought you there.

"The album title is about the punk scene in general and the evolution of the punk rock movement. Generation after generation, we seem to slowly change what punk rock can be. Every day there’s a band doing something different, creating a little bit of something new. We all take influences from what we love, and try to turn it into something positive that's our own. That's how the punk scene has evolved from it's original classic sound. It’s always exciting and never dull to me," says bassist and backing vocalist Justin Pritchard.

Guitarist and lead vocalist Patrick Drury continues, "the songs on the album reflect the confusion and sometimes extreme sadness that comes from the constant battles we all fight. The weight of responsibilities that come with age and the realization that life just isn't what you expected it to be, sometimes brings on an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia for the past. At the time, certain life experiences felt like they were such monumental events, but now seem laughable at how they really didn't amount to much of anything. So even when things seem the darkest and most insurmountable, the message of our music is to fight on no matter how much we may want to just give up. So many of us feel the same way and have these same fears, and we're hear to let you know that we can hold each other up...that we can be our own light in the darkness."

One thing is for certain, ten blistering tracks just isn’t enough. Striking hard with purpose, conviction and relevance, Never A Dull Movement is a massive step forward toward not only finding their sound, but also in living their lives to the fullest. If the strength of this memorable debut is any indication of what the future holds for Kid You Not, I can’t wait to hear what comes next. Kid You Not may not save the world, or even punk rock, but fuckin' a...they saved me.

Track Name: Heaven For The Climate, Hell For The Company
what do we have left. seems everything's been done to death. but we all have these scars. we can't help who we are. you take what you can get but there are some things we can't accept. we're broken from the start and take it all to hard. now it's been years and they've been hard. searching for light in this endless dark. flickering. a distant spark that lets us know where we are. what do we have now. we have no hope left to work this out. damaged but you know we'll never let it show. cause it's been years and they've been hard. searching for light in this endless dark. flickering. a distant spark that lets us know where we are. there's no time to fix this. the future was never a given. now it's been years and they've been hard. searching for light in this endless dark. flickering. a distant spark. a lighthouse to lead us all back to shore. it's been hard
Track Name: There's No Crying In Baseball
awakened from restless sleep, we open our eyes to see we made all the same mistakes. at least they were ours to make. we'll stumble along the way and we'll always struggle. we'll run out of words to say from biting our own tongues. we'll keep pushing against the current to keep moving on and on, and brace ourselves for another day. what is it all for. we'll keep searching for questions to the answers we always ignore. our secrets we chose to keep. our mouths can't be coaxed to speak. it's something that we all need. we're not so alone now. we'll sleep but we'll never dream. a story we all know. we still don't know what it means but we'll never let go. we'll keep pushing against the current to keep moving on and on, and brace ourselves for another day. what is it all for. we'll keep searching for questions to the answers we always ignore. this is a perfect picture complete with broken frame. this is a random pattern. a purposeful mistake. these are our words in action. unbound and out of place. this is a chain reaction. this is our saving grace. this is a perfect picture complete with broken frame. this is a random pattern. a purposeful mistake. these are our words in action. unbound and out of place. this is our own distraction. our bluff to keep moving on an on. and keep on pushing against the current
Track Name: Me And Dead Owls Don't Give A Hoot
we're desperate to change. cause we won't last long just living for today. take it for what it's worth. a lesson learned and another broken curse. a reason to stay. this was the wake up call left ringing off the hook. it's just an empty threat, but we'll play it by the book. we've set our sights on something better. there's no need to explain. but we've lost our place in things we've set in motion. we can't deal with the change and we've lost our way back home. this was the wake up call left ringing off the hook. it's just an empty threat, but we'll play it by the book. one last cigarette, one last kiss, and one less accident. as time goes by we'll stay here. our intentions might seem unclear. stop and stare. it's something you cant see. we think we know it all, but we still don't know what we need. this was the wake up call left ringing off the hook. it's just an empty threat, but we'll play it by the book. one last cigarette, one last kiss, and one less accident. there's other wounds to discover. it doesn't make a difference if it's not already there. recover the will to recover. it doesn't make a difference if it's not already gone. and time goes by. this was the wake up call left ringing off the hook. it's just an empty threat, but we'll play it by the book. we're desperate to change, because we know now we won't last long just living for today. but we can't say we got this wrong. for one last cigarette, one last kiss, and one less accident
Track Name: It's Not The Years Honey, It's The Mileage
we live our lives in dissonance to every key. its like a dischord ringing out, but we never hear the sound. singing out an endless verse, but no one knows the words. can you hear it now? the tempo's slowing down. we can put it off for one more day, but we know there will be hell to pay. we'll never see those bright lights coming home. can't find the words to plea our case. we turned our backs on better days. one last drink to one more wasted year, and throw the bottle to the ground. watching our lives go past. we can't go back. and we're searching for something to fight for, but woefully outgunned. do you feel it now? the clock is running out. we can put it off for one more day, but we know there will be hell to pay. we'll never see those bright lights coming home. can't find the words to plea our case. we turned our backs on better days. one last drink to one more wasted year, and throw the bottle to the ground. can we save ourselves from what comes after. can we free ourselves and cut the anchor. can we save ourselves this time. we can put it off for one more day, but we know there's gonna be hell to pay. we'll never see those bright lights coming home. can't find the words to plea our case. we turned our backs on better days. one last drink to one more wasted year, and throw the bottle to the ground
Track Name: Smoke Another Beer
hold on tight now, this might get rough. let's pile on ourselves, just until we break down. until it's just too much. the road gets longer now with every passing step. we're searching for some place that we can finally rest our heads. so mad to live, so mad to talk, so mad to be saved from our stupid selves. too lost to care, too dumb to try, we're destined to fail but we don't know why. hold on tight now, we're out of luck. let's count out our blessings in celebration when they go up in smoke. we'll start over. we'll make our plans to fight for ourselves but just give it up and go back to sleep instead. so mad to live, so mad to talk, so mad to be saved from our stupid selves. too lost to care, too dumb to try, we're destined to fail but we don't know why. we can't start over, we're losing touch. we made all these plans but we talked too much. we felt emboldened and forged ahead then drank ourselves right back to sleep again
Track Name: Nothing Is The New Black
remember the minutes of days gone by. we'll freeze all the clocks on the memories of young love and wreckless lives. we'd leave through open windows at 2am, and hit the streets breathing hard. as our beating hearts escaped into summer nights. we had the wherewithal to know it was do or die. these days couldn't last us forever when we where young. blanket all the windows and pass the time. as we toasted to destruction and sing the songs of wasted and wreckless lives. we crash down at the first sign of morning light. we'll close our eyes to escape from the dawning day and sleep off the nights regrets. when we had the wherewithal to know it was do or die. those days couldn't last us forever. when we were young, and knew we were always right for trying to hold onto something we never had. now we're strangers in this town that never saw the end. left alone here in this crowd, and it's slowly closing in. time is running out and soon we'll disappear. we had the wherewithal to know this was do or die. those days couldn't last us forever. when we were young and knew we were always right for trying to hold on. when we had the wherewithal to know it was do or die. those days couldn't last us forever. when we were young, and knew we were always right for trying to hold onto something we never had
Track Name: You Know What I Like About Rich Kids? Nothing!
tell me, are your wits about? i'm sharpening my tongue and i've waited just to have this chance to finally cut you up for everything you've said and done. for every single word you wrote that brought us to this situation. we're burning down every bridge. we'll sever all connection to the past. we're falling out without a sound. we'll disconnect the lines and shut it down. tell me if you listening. just tell me if you're there and i'll sing to you through dial tones. oh tell me can you hear this one last thing before I go. I'd wait for your reply but the silence here is deafening. we're burning down every bridge. we'll sever all connection to the past. we're falling out without a sound. we'll disconnect the lines and shut it down. so light it up. drink it down. we're gonna die here without a sound. light it up. drink it down. we're gonna die here. we're burning down every bridge. we'll sever all connection to the past. we're falling out without a sound. we'll disconnect the lines and shut it down. burn it to the ground and die without a sound. die without a sound
Track Name: Be A Lot Cooler If You Did
tonite these empty streets will be singing out our past. the faintest smell of alcohol still lingers on our breathe. and like ghosts we haunt the shadows. in between the glowing lights of this town of this town. but every morning I wake up and it hurts just a little more. stop me if you've heard this one before. another story to make up. and a feeling you can't ignore. lies we tell ourselves to keep on going. that keep us from sinking. and as we reenact those crimes. that we wiped away and pushed aside. buried and forgot them here. that red washed clean from our hands. yeah that red washed clean from our hands. but every morning I wake up and it hurts just a little more. stop me if you've heard this one before. another story to make up. and a feeling you can't ignore. lies we tell ourselves to keep on going. that keep us from sinking. this time, we're stripped and plain. this time, we'll play this straight. this time, we've got no way. this time, we'll bend and break. this time, we're stripped and plain. this time, we'll play this straight. this time, we'll bend and break. bend and break. but every morning I wake up and it hurts just a little more. stop me if you've heard this one before. another story to make up. and a feeling you can't ignore. lies we tell ourselves to keep on going. that keep us from sinking. this time, we're stripped and plain. this time, we'll play this straight. this time, we'll bend and break. we'll bend and break
Track Name: Never Tell Me The Odds
we wake with empty hearts and with bloodshot eyes. we search for inspiration. we wait with restless hands and with wasted lives. we tell ourselves "this will get better with time". there's a sickness that's infected us. we don't want to hear the truth. we fake it all and move on through the day. does it feel good to know. the more things change the more things stay so strange. we speak with empty words and with thoughtless lies. we've got no motivation. we sing to reckless chords in worn out rhymes. this apathetic chorus sung out of time. there's a sickness that's infected us. we don't want to hear the truth. we fake it all and move on through the day. does it feel good to know. the more things change the more things stay so strange. we built those walls with our two hands. we fought those battles we couldn't win. there's a hopelessness in knowing what could have been. there's a sickness that's infected us we don't want to hear the truth. we fake it all and move on through the day. does it feel good to know. the more things change the more things stay so strange
Track Name: No Shirt. No Shoes. No Dice.
there's something wrong with our lives today. a missing component. a meaning long lost along the way that we used to rely on. for all intents and all purposes we might as well waste away. but we carry the burden until we burn out. or at least until we fade away. there's something gone from our lives today. a missing compassion. a message long lost along the way. we're yearning to fight on. for all intents and all purposes we might as well waste away. because we're buried under the weight of time. it looks like there's no escape. so we keep on searching our wasted years for some kind of answers to the questions still ringing in our ears. and hoping to find our way back to where we all belong. one voice, one reason. one choice, no regret. we just want something to believe in
