The Lawrence Arms, celebrated their 10 year anniversary with a hometown show at the Metro in Chicago this past Saturday. The sold out event came with limited edition posters, vinyl and a film crew. Check out what Brendan had to say by clicking here. SPIN is currently debuting a brand new MP3 from TLA which you can only hear right here! The song is titled “DEMONS” and will only be available to those who purchase the EP digitally. Brendan Kelly of TLA has written a very detailed blog about the release which you find in its entirety here but we’ve included a wee part of it below. Enjoy!

Okay, so usually I like Bad Sandwich to be a bit of a respite from punk rock…a place to come read about dick jokes and pussy farts and just kind of escape the mindless claptrap surrounding Taking Back Sunday, Dan Yemin and Justin Sane and Davy Havok and Tom Delonge and all that. Right? Sure. It’s never been about the music here, folks. It’s always been about the felching. That’s our motto, at least.

SO, today is where I break form completely. I’m in a band. Some of you probably know all about this. We’re called the Lawrence Arms, and while we’re not as popular as, say, Eric Clapton, we’re a lot more popular than, say, your band (unless you’re in the Alkaline Trio or Against Me! [and even then you’re still mondo gay]), AND we’re coming out with a record called Buttsweat and Tears on Fat Wreck Chords next week. In the spirit of promoting said release, is putting a free download of one of the songs on the internet. The song is called Demons and I think it’s pretty cool.

We made this the focus track because it’s the bonus song that’s not on the vinyl version and only available on itunes and we figured that we shouldn’t penalize the people who were cool enough to buy the 7” by giving them one less song. Everyone should be able to have the five songs if they want em, right? Right. So yeah. We decided to pass out the bonus track for free because we’re cooler than all other bands. That’s right, other bands, we’re talking about you. Nice haricuts. Sweet matching outfits. Nice sustainable careers. Bleh…

Stupid bands.

Fat Wreck Chords WRECKTROSPECTIVE Out Nov. 24!!

After nearly 20 years of churning out nonstop hit records we figured it was high time to take on the daunting task of putting together a Fat Wreck Chords box set. Why? Well, besides the fact that we love a challenge, we realized that with over 280 releases and a roster that reads like a hall of fame list, it was probably long overdue. So, over the past few months we here at Fat engaged in many long discussions, heated debates, and, ultimately, an office mud wrestling match (which Floyd won, of course), in order to determine a track list that we thought was worthy of representing Fat. And we don’t mind saying that we did a damn good job. The box set is called Wrecktrospective (get it?) and it contains 3 discs. The first disc is a greatest hits of Fat, featuring 33 bands. The second disc features 28 previously unreleased demos. Finally, the third disc is the extremely limited Fat Club 7" series in it’s entirety, previously unavailable on cd. Just to sweeten the pot, there is a fold out poster included and a bevy of entertaining stories provided by the bands. All in all, you’d be crazy not to pick this thing up.

And if 88 songs aren’t enough for you, we will have Short Music For Short People on color vinyl available soon. 101 30 second songs never before on color vinyl.

NOFX EP/7" x2 out on November 24th!

We are pleased to announce NOFX are set to release Cokie the Clown on November 24th! This EP/7”x2 will be available on cd/vinyl and through ITUNES. Okay, wrap your brains around this release. Its five brand new songs by NOFX released on one CD and split up on two different 7”s. The CD EP is titled Cokie the Clown. The first 7” is also titled Cokie the Clown_, go here for details!  You may remember Fat Mike and his daughter performing “Straight Outta Massachusetts” for Pancake Mountain which you can watch here! The second 7” is titled My Orphan Year, click blank">here for details. Each will have different covers and both will have different colored vinyl. Phew! Did you get all that? If not, read what Fat Mike has to say:

All right, Australia is a pretty cool place. I like it a whole bunch. It’s actually my favorite country/continent/island in the world, but Fuck them and their stupid time zone! Seriously, what the fuck? It takes us 18 hours to fly home (2 of which were in Hawaii cuz the toilets on the plane broke) and when we get back to Cali…….and it’s the same fucking day!

Fuck, like the shite(sp) plane ride wasn’t bad enough, now I gotta stay awake for another 10 hours. No can do. I fall asleep at 10:00 pm. Sounds reasonable? Until I wake up at 12:30 am. Yeah, cuz that’s 5:30 pm Aussie time. This isn’t really enough to bitch about, but fuck, I can’t fall asleep till 8:00 am and that’s with Ambien and whatever-pam. I woke up at 3 in the afternoon yesterday, only cuz I had to get my daughter from school.

So now it’s 6:15 am and I’m writing this many word thing to tell everyone about our new EP, but my brain is dumb now and I don’t write in a making sense manner so much. This is what I got:

Hey, BTWV (Vanessa), not 5 new song EP. 5 songs that were recorded during Coaster but didn’t make the record cuz they were too good! That’s right, they are so good that the stupid president of our record label made us leave them off the record cuz we could, “Make more money with an EP ” says him/he. NOFX think makes not sense, but he’s the guy with the fountain so we do what he says. Dudes crazy anyway. Talks about himself in the third person nonstop.

OK, Gotta go catch a flight to Riot Fest in 3 hours. I’m dressing like a fucking clown all weekend. Big stretch….later, Cokie
