Pryor explains the story behind the track to Rolling Stone, "It's a weird roller coaster, this job. When you're onstage it's a dizzying high and when you're in your hotel, thousands of miles away from your family, reading negative tweets it's the pits...[The song is] a very personal and honest self reflection..."
 
In preparation for the album release, Pryor has also released the album art and track listing for Wrist Slitter. The album includes 12 dynamic tracks as well as appearances from friends Chris Conley (of Saves The Day), Bob Nanna (of Braid), and Steve Soboslai (of Punchline). Pryor further expands on the origin of album title Wrist Slitter"I was prepared to write a very sad album, a wrist slitter, but this album ended up being the exact opposite of that."
 
Full track listing for the album appears below.
 
Though best known for his work as the primary singer-songwriter for The Get Up Kids, Pryor has a vast musical catalog including his folk-tinged group The New Amsterdams, children's music project Terrible Twos and indie-rock super group Lasorda - featuring Nate Harold (fun.), Mike Standberg (Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band), and Dustin Kinsey (The New Amsterdams). Never one to slow down, Pryor also contributes to Chicago start-up Downwrite - a website that enables artists to create fan-commissioned songs and connect with fans on a personal and creative level - and performs online concerts for StageIt - an online platform dedicated to monetized live streamed performances. In 2012, Pryor started his own Nothing To Write Home About podcast wherein he interviews fellow musicians and industry friends such as Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra), Chris Conley (Saves The Day), Kevin Devine, Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), and more.
 
This winter will see Pryor on the road in support of the new album with label mates Max Bemis (Say Anything), Sherri DuPree Bemis (Eisley), Perma, and Merriment. Pryor has recently announced additional shows in Denver and Salt Lake City. Dates included below.
