As the first band to sign to Fat Wreck Chords and the label’s flagship since its inception, Lagwagon continues to forge a unique path through today’s complex musical landscape. The band maintains a sense of humor about their enviable longevity with the title of their latest offering, but the content of the album is anything but laughable. The new 7-song EP, I Think My Older Brother Used To Listen To Lagwagon, is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed full length, Resolve, released in 2005. They will tour the U.S. & Canada with MXPX, Only Crime, and TAT beginning next week:
