Lawrence Arms

Metropole (With Bonus CD Of Album)

Epitaph 87303

Released on January 28, 2014


Chicago's own The Lawrence Arms will release Metropole, their first album in eight years, on January 28, 2014 via Epitaph. A beloved band in the punk scene from their inception in 1999, members Brendan Kelly (vocals/bassist), Chris McCaughan (vocals/guitar), and Neil Hennessey (drummer) have released five studio albums to date. Their sixth album and first with Epitaph, Metropole captures “that alone-in-a-crowd, stranger-in-a-strange-land kind of shit” according to Kelly. Metropole was recorded at Chicago's Atlas Studios with coproducer Matt Allison, who has also worked with Chicago-punkscene veterans Alkaline Trio. The follow-up to their 2009 Fat Wreck Chords EP Buttsweat and Tears, the new venture takes apart the band's gritty punk rock and fiery spirit, to reveal a new passion for storytelling-through-songwriting. Take the bravely personal lyrics of "You Are Here" where McCaughan ironically sings "Days just keep rolling on / They won’t miss me when I’m gone / I’m the chorus to that lonely street / Just footsteps fading to a dying beat.” After a long hiatus, dedicated fans have missed The Lawrence Arms and are ready for the band's most dynamic album to date.

This is a solid return for these guys. There are only a few really great standout tracks, but it's a solid album overall. If you're a fan, you can't lose. If you've never heard them, you still can't lose. Go see them in concert too. I just saw them and it was awesome!

I greatly enjoyed this album and am really happy to see the Lawrence arms have made their very long hiatus worth it, though I feel it strays from their original sound, sorta like a less angst-y.. "we're getting old" album, but in all honesty does not lack the musical creativity we've come to expect from the Lawrence arms. lyrically it's not their best work, but still in songs like "October Blood", the lyrics really do paint a picture and pack quite a punch, so I'm gonna have to be an indecisive prick, and go with a four outta five, absolutely would recommend this album to a friend, but not some one who's new to punk music. Anyways, here's my review like it or don't, that's up to you.
