New EP from The Lawrence Arms, out on October 27th!

Hot Dog! The Lawrence Arms have wiped their blurry eyes and have recorded a brand new EP titled Buttsweat and Tears to be released on vinyl and digitally via ITUNES on October 27th. Check back soon on how and when you can get your limited edition color vinyl. In the mean time, check out what Brendan Kelly had to say about the EP:

When my band, the Lawrence Arms, first started, we had this idea for a seven inch. We had the title picked out and we even knew what the cover was gonna be. We promised ourselves that our first seven inch would have this name and this cover. Well, we never did a seven inch (except for one that was part of a label series, which meant that the cover and the title were sort of more beholden to the big picture rather than our dumb ideas) and the whole thing kind of languished, and now, ten years later, in conjunction with our ten year anniversary show and subsequent west coast run (the first run in over 2 years), we’ve got our first real seven inch on our hands. And guess what? We fucking named it the name that we thought up ten years ago. That’s right, assholes. When we decided what our first seven inch was gonna be called, ‘a digital release’ sounded like some sort of futuristic way to blow your load using your computer, and yet this fucking record is gonna be released digitally with an extra song. That’s, again, right, asshats. You guys wanna know what it’s called? Do you? It’s called Buttsweat and Tears. Why? Well, for one thing, they’re the two most secreted liquids from the three of us over the last decade, but of course we didn’t know that would be the case when we thought up the title. We just thought it sounded tough, you know?

Chris Rest joins No Use For A Name!

As reported earlier in the week, Chris Rest of Lagwagon fame has joined No Use For A Name! To celebrate the occasion the band is doing a one off show in San Francisco at Thee Parkside on October 7th before heading to Japan. Tony Sly had this to say:

We are totally stoked to have Chris in the band. I have always thought he was a shredder, so when I found out he was available I called him right away. It’s also kind of cool to get someone from one of our peer bands because we all sort of grew up doing the same things. He’s very easy to get along with and I think he will add to our sound.
