Brendan Kelly has confirmed that The Lawrence Arms have recorded five demos for the upcoming record.
From His BlogLook, I donít know. I donít know what this record is gonna be, but it definitely continues the Lawrence Arms tradition of being totally different than what we did before. Itís not Oh! Calcutta! and itís not Buttsweat and Tears. In fact, we were talking about this last night and if youíre the kind of dork that spends way too much time thinking on the Lawrence Arms catalog (and thatís exactly the kind of dork I am) then this next bit may be interesting. If youíre not, you may want to just skip it and get on with your life.
