The Lawrence Arms

The Lawrence Arms got together in 1999 after the departure of Chicago pop-punkers the Broadways, Slapstick, Baxter, and Tricky Dick. The collaboration of Brendan Kelly (vocals/bass), Neil Hennessy (drums), and Chris McCaughan (guitar/vocals) produced music in the same vein of their previous bands: clever -- often politically inspired -- pop-punk with an aggressive, gritty edge. Asian Man Records released the Lawrence Arms' first album, A Guided Tour of Chicago, in November of 1999, while their second album, Ghost Stories, followed six months later. Present Day Memories, a split release with Asian Man peers the Chinkees, appeared in summer 2001. After 13 straight months of touring and drunken debauchery, the Lawrence Arms joined forces with Fat Wreck for 2002's Apathy and Exhaustion. The Greatest Story Ever Told was issued in September 2003; two years later Cocktails & Dreams, a compilation of B-sides, live recordings, and stray tracks, surfaced. Their next full-length, Oh! Calcutta!, came in March 2006, followed by a statewide tour with NOFX. With the exception of an EP in 2009, the wryly titled Buttsweat and Tears, the band was not to release anything further until 2014, thanks to the members' involvement in side projects the Falcon and Sundowner, and Hennessy's stint with Smoking Popes. In fact, some believed the band had split completely, until they announced in late 2013 that they had signed to Epitaph and would be releasing a new single, "News from Yalta," and a full-length album, Metropole, in January of the following year. The album had a melodic, accessible sound and was hailed as their most mature effort to date. ~ Mike DaRonco

To paulie paratrooper; glad the music may have helped you and I truly feel bad that you have to fight a useless war. I appreciate all soldiers and their service; however, I do not understand why we have to pretend like the war our corrupt and arrogant government sends them into to make untold profits for themselves btw, is anything but corrupt profiteering . I refuse to let anyone make me feel bad or unpatriotic for knowing that the last few wars our country has been risking the lives of its yout

Saw these guys for $2 with Mu330 and Alkaline Trio doing an acoustic set. What a killer show for a 14 year old in a coffee shop. They were playing Chicago is Burning back then, way more raspy, raw, drunken, madness. Still badass, but those were the days.

The people who write Pandora's bios are incapable of writing the word 'punk' without modifying it with the word 'pop'.

i almost saw them once with lagwagon and a wilhelm scream but there van broke down and they couldnt make it...now that would have been a show. I really like them and I was surprised to see in the similar artist section it dosen't include jawbreaker. They sound hella like them. I almost at first thought it was the same singer.
