Matthew Pryor - World Exposure Interview With Cher dial
February 10, 2011
In 2011, Pryor ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund a second solo album, entitled May Day. The project was funded, and the album was released in January 2012, along with the companion album Still, There's a Light. That same year, he formed the supergroup Lasorda with members of fun., White Whale and Kevin Devine's Goddamn Band, writing and recording their new album remotely in different studios across the country. In 2013, Pryor released Outroduction, a collection of B-Sides meant to serve as the final release by The New Amsterdams. He is also writing a third Terrible Twos album, as well as recording songs with Get Up Kids Bandmate James Dewees for an as-yet unnamed side-project.
In 2012, Pryor launched "Nothing to Write Home About," an interview podcast featuring one-on-one interviews with Pryor's musician friends. James Dewees was a regular guest on this podcast and they later announced plans to release a collaborative EP on vinyl/digital formats together. This self-titled EP was released on October 1, 2013. Matt has plans to follow this up with a new album called "Wrist Slitter" on November 12, 2013 via Rory Records in the US and Alcopop! Records in the U.K.
