Fat Wreck Chords is teaming up with Crankstrap Productions to release a DVD from The Lawrence Arms titled An Evening of Extraordinary Circumstance, due out in late summer. The video was shot at The Metro in Chicago during The Lawrence Arms 10 year anniversary show. Take a look at this stellar preview and we’re confident you’ll find what you’ve come to expect at a Lawrence Arms show: booze, banter, music and the usual rogues’ gallery of fans. Check out what Brendan Kelly had to say about the DVD:
When Travis approached me about filming The Lawrence Arms’ 10 year anniversary show at the Metro in Chicago, I said something to the effect of “sure, I don’t care, just as long as I don’t have to do any work or think about it at all.” Well, fast forward a year and a half and motherfuckers are asking me for blurbs about this shit. This wasn’t part of the deal, man! If Travis had done anything less than a spectacular job of capturing three sweaty gross men doing what we love to do, I’d feel really put upon. Fortunately, however, Travis is a great filmmaker and I think the results speak for themselves.
The band’s record release shows are this Friday and Saturday in Hollywood and Long Beach, respectively. Check out details here.
We’ve got an exclusive stream from the new Teenage Bottlerocket 7-inch Mutilate Me and you can check it out here! The 3 song ep comes out April 12th and will be available digitally and on vinyl. Teenage Bottlerocket have added a slew of tour dates including Europe and Canada! Have a look.
Fat Wreck Chords is thrilled to announce another collaboration with Rise Against! On April 16th, happily known as Record Store Day; we’ll release a limited edition three song picture disc titled Join the Ranks. The onetime pressing will be limited to 1000 copies, and features three songs never before available on Rise Against vinyl. Check your favorite indie record store to get your hands on a copy! Rise Against had this to say about the release below:
Fat Wreck put us on the map, and “Join The Ranks” was the very first song we ever officially released on a proper label. “Gethsemane” was recorded in an old oil factory in Chicago, the same factory where we would go on to film our first video. Along with “Generation Lost”, this seven inch is long overdue and we’re happy to team up with our old friends at Fat to do it.
We just got word that Smoke or Fire is playing in Chicago! You lucky dogs!
Less Than Jake did an acoustic live session. Watch one of the video’s now!
