Motion City Soundtrack 

The arc of a long-running band's career is often marked by a maturation process. Songwriting changes are made to broaden signature sounds, and lyrics begin to tackle more serious subject matter than girls and booze. Minnesota's Motion City Soundtrack is not exempt from this process. While not completely eschewing its catchy brand of straight-forward, four-chord pop-punk songs, on the band's fifth studio album "Go" — released this month — MCS has tied together the travails of a life on the road into an album the band members' former selves wouldn't have been able to complete. As is often the case, that life on the road, constantly playing shows and building audiences, is how a band is able to last so long. Lives and songwriting material may change, but the shows are constant.

Motion City Soundtrack performs Tuesday, June 26, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $16-$18.
