He befriends an older Asian man who teaches him karate and then he kicks everyone’s ass.”

Reggie and the Full Effect is the solo project of James Dewees, otherwise known as the keyboardist for influential pop-punk band The Get Up Kids. 2018 marks the act’s 20th anniversary and the beginning of his next chapter with the release of the 7th studio album, 41. The upcoming record will be Dewees’ first release in 4 years, following 2013’s Pure Noise Record debut No Country For Old Musicians
