Hailing from Illinois, The Lawrence Arms formed in 1999 and almost 20-years later, the band remains unchanged! Bassist-vocalist Brendan Kelly, guitarist-vocalist Chris McCaughan, and drummer Neil Hennessy have evolved tremendously over the last two decades but to this day, they are just three dudes who love playing music together.
The Lawrence Arms are now out on tour to support their latest album, We Are The Champions Of The World, a 29-song best-of album that chronicles the band’s steady evolution over the past two decades. Hungry fans will be pleased to know that the new album also contains five previously unreleased songs, taken from recording sessions that spawned the band’s classic 2006 album Oh! Calcutta!
