To celebrate their 19th year, The Lawrence Arms have announced a best-of album, with unreleased tracks!
“We Are the Champions of the World”, a 29 song retrospective collecting the band’s most popular works, is due out March 30th on Fat Wreck Chords.
The band took a unique approach to crafting the compilation record. Rather than just a smattering of commercially successful singles, they attempted to capture the band’s evolution throughout their career. “I think you have to have hits to make a greatest hits,” says bassist/vocalist Brandon Kelly, “of which, frankly, there are none.” The album will feature material from all of their releases, and include 5 unheard songs recorded during the “Oh, Calcutta” sessions.
This spring, The Lawrence Arms will set out on tour to support the record starting April 4th in Boston and winding down May 6th in Denver, CO. Check out additional details on the dates below!
