Joey Cape talks about Lagwagon’s upcoming album “Hang”

Lagwagon frontman Joey Cape talked to RMP Magazine about the band’s upcoming album “Hang.” You can check out an excerpt about what fans can expect from the album below.

Joey Cape: Well, it sounds like a Lagwagon album but maybe it is a little bit more focused on more guitar riffy stuff we used to do in the older days. And there’s a lot less pop on the record, it’s really aggressive and there are the lyrics I wrote over about two years’ time, which sort of make it’s a conceptual record. In loose terms, it’s kind of social commentary on now, what I see. And I’m really happy with it, I mean the most happy I’ve ever been time with any record I ever made. The whole bands is proud of the record and excited to play this record. This thing when you make a good record and you know it, you feel like you can’t wait to play those new songs. Which we’re not doing as we’re waiting to play the songs until the album comes out. It’s almost painful on this tour because maybe at a soundcheck we’re playing one of the new songs but we can’t play them in the set.

You can read the full interview here. Hang is set to be released on October 28th through Fat Wreck Chords. It will be the band’s first full-length in nearly a decade, serving as a follow-up to 2005′s Resolve.

    …good news
    in a musical way “a lot less pop on the record, it’s really aggressive ”
    and in a lyrical way “kind of social commentary on now, what I see”

    …will be in the TOP 10 of 2014 for sure.
