DS Exclusive: Brendan Kelly on the first Falcon record in a decade…and so, so much more

There are a few ways to handle the composition of an interview introduction. Generally speaking, I’ll spend 500-1000 words composing a rough sketch of a story, that does its best to highlight the noteworthy parts of a conversation. This is not most interviews.

Brendan Kelly has long been one of the more enigmatic personalities in this little scene of ours, whether in real life via bands like Slapstick and The Lawrence Arms and The Wandering Birds and The Falcon, or, more recently in the virtual world (is “virtual” still a word?) that is Twitter, where his personal and Nihilist Arbys accounts are must-follows. The latter of the above-mentioned bands, The Falcon has reformed, adding Dave Hause to the already vaunted lineup that included Kelly, his fellow Lawrence Arms bandmate Neil Hennessy, and, of course, Alkaline Trio’s Dan Andriano. On March 18th, the new lineup will release the band’s sophomore followup to their 2006 debut, Unicornography, which remains the largest-selling album in their label, Red Scare Industries, decade-long history. The new album, Gather Up The Chaps, which is a dozen tracks that are just as weird and twisted and awesome and dark and depraved as you’d hope for.

So there. There’s your intro to our interview, because this one stands alone. Without engaging in too much self-congratulatory ball washing, it’s smart, it’s funny, it’s a little strange, it takes some unexpected turns. We spend a lot of time talking about the origin, and rebirth, of The Falcon, the different elements that Andriano and Hause bring to the songwriting table, and Tyler The Creator…and Dostoevsky…and killing hookers and leaving them under the crawlspace. Because you’d expect nothing less.

Brendan Kelly of the Lawrence Arms releases Nihilist Arby’s video

This might be the most bizarre story I’ve personally covered on Dying Scene.

Some of you may know about the twitter account @Nihilist_Arbys, which has existed for months, spewing darkly comedic nihilist rhetoric under the guise of Arby’s restaurant. The AV Club recently released a video sent to them, supposedly from the Twitter account, that shows Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms leading similar nihilist philosophies and eating Arby’s.

Check out the madness below.
