Big Ups are back, making their second appearance on Serious Business on BTR, and things have been going well for them since they last sat down with Travis. We can see why, as the Brooklyn post-hardcore band is busy touring and making great music, drawn from the Minutemen/Black Flag bloodline. They’ve made tons of fans and friends in their short career and, here, they talk to Travis about their lives on the road and play some excellent new tunes.
Featured song: “Justice”
