Lawrence Arms


The Lawrence Arms
We Are The Champions Of The World
Fat Wreck Chords
ADDS 3/27/18

Culled from the band’s entire discography, which includes their releases on Asian Man Records, Epitaph Records, and Fat Wreck Chords, We Are The Champions Of The World serves as both a retrospective and an introduction to the Chicago institution. The track list was handpicked by the band—bassist-vocalist Brendan Kelly, guitarist-vocalist Chris McCaughan, and drummer Neil Hennessy—in order to show how these three friends went from making gritty, lo-fi records to becoming some of the sharpest songwriters in all of punk. In addition to the monumental track list, all the liner notes were written by Kelly and McCaughan. They both reflect on how each song came to be, sharing anecdotes about what inspired them to put pen to paper, without explicitly detailing what the songs are about. The result is a fun glimpse into the band’s creative process, that preserves the mythology built up by fans over the years. Finally, the track list boasts a little something new for even the most seasoned fans of THE LAWRENCE ARMS, with 5 previously unreleased and super rare songs. In all, We Are The Champions Of The World serves as the perfect collection for newcomers and longtime fanatics alike.

Liner notes include stories and insights about each song from the band members (included in download folder).

Last 5 songs are previously unreleased.
