about

Sung from the gut and straight from the heart, Florida-based punk outfit KID YOU NOT answers the recent release of their full-length Deep Elm debut with an intoxicating, invigorating, raucous return featuring six brand new songs and six fresh recordings of the band's classic anthems. From the moment Home Again takes off, it's purity, purpose and DIY spirit are palpable. 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, the album never lets up with its wrath of gruff vocals, melodic harmonies, pounding drums and infectious choruses. This is an album about our divisive social and political climate, the frustration and discontentment inherent in pursuit of the American Dream and the challenge of maintaining the valuable friendships we cherish to help us make it through another day. It's the kind of record Deep Elm was founded upon, where you turn up the volume, sing along at the top of your lungs and throw your fists in the air. Undeniably infectious and highly relatable. (DER-585)

Tour Dates:
SEP 23 - St. Augustine, FL @ Sarbez (AGAINST ME! After Party)
SEP 28 - Savannah, GA @ The Jinx w/ You Vandal

Striking hard with purpose, conviction and relevance, Home Again is another giant step forward for Kid You Not in living their lives to the fullest. If the direction of this new album 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.

Kid You Not is Patrick Drury (guitar, lead vocals), Justin Pritchard (bass, backing vocals), Ben Bennett (guitar, backing vocals) and Victor Joudi (drums). All songs were written, produced, recorded, engineered and mastered by Kid You Not at Golden God Recording Studio. Album art layout by Tim Anderson with imagery by Krisdog.

Track Name: Strikes and Gutters, Ups and Downs
i'm back here. ii'm broken down. losing time while i'm losing ground. i'm fucked up. i'm out of touch. i'm at a loss cause i think too much. i'm used to this. but oh my god i just can't take it. hold me up. help me stand. get me back on my feet again. sew me up. cut the thread. then get me home and into my bed. i might just make it. i'm waking up then blacking out. slow to trust but i'll come around. i'm holding on while it drags me down. my heart is on my sleeve. but my head is in the ground. hold me up. help me stand. get me back on my feet again. sew me up. cut the thread. then get me home and into my bed. another disaster. it's just another disaster. (i can learn to live with it). another disaster. it's just another day
Track Name: Virtue Signals
we were just kids. who never knew what redemption meant. we threw caution to the wind. full of impetuous contempt. 4am on an open road. we were running. we were searching. we had a burning in our guts. the seperation felt so good. hot blood, wild hearts. no motive for reckless abandon. sworn off from the start. disregarded. thick skin, sharp tongues. no purpose but aimless rebellion. so keen to be written off. we were just kids. we were cocksure of what we said. with no formula or plan. no real belief in anything. we weren't so delicate back then. we were hungry. we were sick. the setting was volatile it seemed. hearts like matches and gasoline. hot blood, wild hearts. no motive for reckless abandon. sworn off from the start. disregarded. thick skin, sharp tongues. no purpose but aimless rebellion. so keen to be written off. born to this come what may. no real choices in anything. we're all burning with wreckless angst. the only winning move is not to play
Track Name: Not With A Whimper, But A Bang
let it go. we can't do a thing about this. running out the clock. with every second wasted counting backwards in days. we thought we had it figured out. now one foot's in the grave as the other beats the ground in panic. we've come of age and try so hard to hold on. but we just waste away. and spend like water circling the drain. for now, we're on to the masquerade. you're not fooling anyone. where'd it go the time we had to think about this. and seconds never stop. with chances gone, regrets are mounting. we've come of age. and try so hard to hold on but we just waste away. and spend like water circling the drain. for now, we're on to the masquerade. you're not fooling anyone. at constant odds and vacant. but we don't care. it's all we've got. the light's on, but we aren't here. we're burnt out. but we've got the right to be. wake me up. someone wake me up. i hope i'm dreaming. i hope i sweat right through the sheets. let it go. we can't do a thing about this. we ran out all the clocks. and every second wasted counted. backwards in days. we thought we had it figured out. now one foot's in the grave. and the other steps in too. at constant odds. and vacant but we don't care. it's all we've got. the light's on, but we aren't here. we're burnt out. but we've got the right to be. we've got the right to be
Track Name: May The Bridges I Burn Light The Way
one heart, two hands. and a chest that's full of piss and wind. high hopes, big plans. and your patience wearing all to thin. jaded, fucked up. but those words come rolling off your tongue. big dreams are to much. they say youth is wasted on the young. if you fuck this up, is it all worth saying? if our chance has passed, is the risk worth taking? we aren't hopeless, but still cynical at best. just trying to find an end. one breath, two lungs. exhale and scream it out yourself. they talk cheap, but so tough. just show your hand and call the bluff. if you fuck this up, is it all worth saying? if our chance has passed, is the risk worth taking? we aren't hopeless, but still cynical at best. just trying to find an end. turn those screws until you strip the thread and let go. now we're all waking up and finding ourselves under lock and key. we were not made to suffer in perpetual restraint. if you fuck this up, is it all worth saying? if our chance has passed, is the risk worth taking? we aren't hopeless, but still cynical at best. just trying to find an end
Track Name: Only Posers Die
well i can start by saying. it's been running through my head. was it a moment of weakness. were we meant for more than this. we spill our blood, pour our sweat, still everything just turns to shit. we're selling off our lives. and running out of time. "no gods, no masters". just an endless trail of disaster. the patron saints of a losing streak. unloved, just bastards. we've got questions, but don't want the answers. we're in too deep. but we still don't know what it means. i've got a constant feeling. that it's all been meaningless. and we keep on repeating. every motion that lead to this. but now it doesn't matter. what's been said. you see who's hands are fucking red. but we settle for losing sleep. and fighting fire with kerosene. "no gods, no masters". just an endless trail of disaster. the patron saints of a losing streak. unloved, just bastards. we've got questions, but don't want the answers. we're in too deep. but we still don't know what it means. we've spent all this time. running in circles. stuck in this cycle. with no means to escape. "no gods, no masters". just an endless trail of disaster. the patron saints of a losing streak. unloved, just bastards. we've got questions, but don't want the answers. we're in too deep. but now we know that we've only ourselves to blame
Track Name: Tar and Feathers
we're going nowhere. and we'll never make this work. we're too bitter to take our chances. so you can just take our word. you know where to find us. at the corner of nowhere. and giving up. we bide our time by avoiding the things to come. we're searching for anything. that makes us feel okay, or feel anything at all. have we been discarded? your sons and daughters, so fargone we can't be saved? well we choose the hard way. we always make things worse. we're on the verge of breaking. because we'll never break the curse. we're all from nowhere. cause we cut the heart out of this town. and left it here to die. we're searching for anything. that makes us feel okay, or feel anything at all. have we been discarded? your sons and daughters, so fargone we can't be saved? now we're still here. it took everything we had left. we stand in silence. victims of ourselves. we're broken hands. with nothing to hold onto. and no idea what to do. we'll learn live to with our own mistakes. to toss and turn in this bed we've made. to follow through with the things we say. to find ourselves and learn to let go. we cut the heart out of this town. and left it here to die
Track Name: E=MC Hammered
you've got a promise to make me. and i've heard just as much before. oh well i could be mistaken. we're just holding up a house cards and. our voices are breaking. and we know we're alone in this. so now we just keep on faking. until we just can't take it anymore. shout out, three cheers. let's hear it for the breakdown. sing loud, and laud our passion for giving in. i've laid around this place for days. i never sleep, but i still keeping waking up. we've got a habit of aching. but i can't get it through my head. it's an illusion of safety. so i put my hope and trust in this. but the words all twisted. and i'll find i'm alone again. just like i never existed. just like i never existed. shout out, three cheers. let's hear it for the breakdown. sing loud, and laud our passion for giving in. i've laid around this place for days. i never sleep, but i still keeping waking up. you've got a promise to make me. and i've heard just as much before. it's an illusion of safety. we're holding up a house cards and. the words just will twisted. i'll find i'm alone again. just like i never existed. just like i never existed. shout out, three cheers. let's hear it for the breakdown. sing loud, and laud our passion for giving in. i've laid around this place for days. i never sleep, i'm giving up. i've laid around this place for days. i never sleep, i stay fucked up. i've laid around this place for days. i never sleep, but i still keeping waking up
Track Name: Boxers Don't Have An Old Timer's Day
let's keep it together, we're a little stronger now. because we still believe in something more than giving up again. because home is where the hurt is. let's tear it down tonight. we may not look it, but we're still alive. so please don't be mistaken. we left a light on, but we're never coming home. we'll search for all the answers on the road. we set the fire, but never burned as bright. we never thought we'd make it out alive. let's keep it together, we're a little stronger now. friends are all we have here in this town. scream no surrender, it's written on our hearts. and all of this was built on our support. because you can't fucking fake this. we left a light on, but we're never coming home. we'll search for all the answers on the road. we set the fire, but never burned as bright. we never thought we'd make it out alive. sing this. we're never coming home again. we left a light on, but we're never coming home. we'll search for all the answers on the road. we set the fire, but never burned as bright. we never thought we'd make it out alive. because you can't fucking fake this
Track Name: When Life Gives You Lemons, Just Say Fuck The Lemons and Bail
you said that you can't take this. look at the scene you're making. give it up, just give it up. dull prose and allegory. a new day but the same old story. just let this go. now you've wasted all your time trying to get the best of me. you're mixed up and backwards, broken and scattered. i won't save you now. you tell me that you're breaking. but you'll show me what you're made of. give it up, just give it up. drinking to indiscretion. part angst than part nostalgia. i don't want to know. now you've wasted all your time trying to get the best of me. you're mixed up and backwards, broken and scattered. i won't save you now. save all of your breath. save it so you can save yourself. save it for when there is nothing left. now you've wasted all your time trying to get the best of me. you're mixed up and backwards, broken and scattered. i won't save you now
Track Name: Boy, Do I Hate Being Right All The Time
write this off and chalk it up to things that we've been through. you still can take this seriously if we're speaking truth. they'll fill your head with what you want to hear. and craft all of their actions just to play into your fears. don't look back just let it go. we choose to rise above it all not sink below. so don't hold back. it'll drag you down like an anchor to the bottom. then you'll drown. tell yourself you're bound break down. pile on the abuse on this road to ruin everything. you'll never see this through. don't look back just let it go. we choose to rise above it all not sink below. so don't hold back. it'll drag you down like an anchor to the bottom . then you'll drown. we've got to settle down and take a moment to work this out. don't look back just let it go. we choose to rise above it all not sink below. so don't hold back. it'll drag you down like an anchor to the bottom. then you'll drown
Track Name: Just Keep Swimming
three years down the road and holding on to open wounds. we try to make some kind of sense of what you had to do. we'll talk about what could have been and think of things we should have said. until we realize the truth was none of this is any use. life chewed you up and spit you out. get up keep breathing. push it back don't lose it. get up keep moving. i know what you've been through. get up keep dreaming. keep moving on. and there are times that things steal every fucking breath you take. beat you down and bend you back until you almost break. indecision, crushing doubt, nowhere left to run to now. what are you supposed to do when it seems there's nothing left to lose. life chewed you up and spit you out. get up keep breathing. push it back don't lose it. get up keep moving. i know what you've been through. get up keep dreaming. keep moving on. if you feel like you're falling apart lean into me, i'll carry you on. don't give up, don't give in, we stay strong for our friends. life chewed you up and spit you out. get up keep breathing. push it back don't lose it. get up. if you feel like you're falling apart lean into me, i'll carry you on. don't give up, don't give in, we stay strong for our friends
Track Name: Drink Your School, Stay In Drugs and Don't Do Milk
let's start this story out with a 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8. and think back to the times that seem like only yesterday. we had time to kill without much planning. and self destruction seemed romantic. with nothing there to get us through. friends were family win or lose. when dawn goes down to day. you know that nothing gold can stay. we came from nothing. it could be that's where we belonged. we searched for something that would keep us all from feeling alone. you'll find comfort when you find some way to move on. you think we're bluffing, but those days are already gone. but we never had the chance to celebrate this moment. we're moving off and moving on. we knew the answers, right or wrong. content to tear this town apart. devastation is all we've got. when dawn goes down to day. you know that nothing gold can stay. we search for something now we know for sure can never return. we've lost our bearings and our compass so we live what we've learned. we've got no destination. dawn goes down to day. nothing gold can stay. we came from nothing. it could be that's where we belonged. we searched for something that would keep us all from feeling alone. you'll find comfort when you find some way to move on. you think we're bluffing, but those days are already gone
