Get ready to have a new favorite band as Fat Wreck Chords has signed Ellwood! If you’ve been missing the Mad Caddies, Ellwood is for you. Chuck, singer from the Mad Caddies formed Ellwood in a tiny farming community where there was nothing to do but get some dudes together and play music. The result is Lost in Transition, Ellwood’s debut on Fat Wreck Chords, due out on June 21st, 2011. Stay tuned as we’ll be debuting a track, and listing tour dates soon!

Fat Wreck Chords is teaming up with Crankstrap Productions to release a DVD from The Lawrence Arms titled An Evening of Extraordinary Circumstance, due out in late summer. The video was shot at The Metro in Chicago during The Lawrence Arms 10 year anniversary show. Take a look at this stellar preview and we’re confident you’ll find what you’ve come to expect at a Lawrence Arms show: booze, banter, music and the usual rogues’ gallery of fans. Check out what Brendan Kelly had to say about the DVD:
When Travis approached me about filming The Lawrence Arms’ 10 year anniversary show at the Metro in Chicago, I said something to the effect of “sure, I don’t care, just as long as I don’t have to do any work or think about it at all.” Well, fast forward a year and a half and motherfuckers are asking me for blurbs about this shit. This wasn’t part of the deal, man! If Travis had done anything less than a spectacular job of capturing three sweaty gross men doing what we love to do, I’d feel really put upon. Fortunately, however, Travis is a great filmmaker and I think the results speak for themselves.
