Are the Lawrence Arms recording a new full-length or touring New England in the near future?

Would you ever consider releasing liner notes to all of your albums explaining some of the meanings and stories behind your songs? I know i loved the liner notes to the Greatest Story Ever Told and i think fans would appreciate an insight into the stories and meaning behind their favourite tunes.

I got a few:

The Lawrence Arms are one of those bands that never blew up on the mainstream but people who listen to you seem to love you. There is almost a cult like vibe to your fans. Why do you think that is?

You reference a ton of classic lit/seemingly high brow things throughout your music spanning all the way back. Basically, you seem like an all around highly educated dude. Who were some of the smartest people you toured with who shared that appreciation? Any interesting stories about that?

Your (killer) new album seems to have put a lot of thought to being an aging punk rocker and wondering what ended and whats next (particularly the closer, hell even the album title). Do you ever regret choosing to be in a punk rock band? Was it worth it?

will the original fast, punk-y version of "warped summer extravaganza" be released anytime soon?

and speaking of warped tour, do you dislike it much more nowadays, or is your disgust with it still at the same level?

Did you give Anti-Flag permission to rip off your song?

(Not kidding)."Shadow of the Dead" verse sounds straight up like "The Routes We Wander" by The Falcon. This has bugged me for years.

Ugh, it makes me endlessly upset that people get the chance to ask BK a question and TWO of you just asked about Brian Fallon.

Since he's doing that European tour with Dan...Will you be doing more solo touring and/or shows with the Wandering Birds before delving back into the Larry Arms, or is recording new material with them your first priority? Also, what's on the horizon w/r/t the script you were shopping around in LA?

Not a question but he told me once The Larry Arms attempted to try to cover The Honor System but just missed it in some parts, technique-wise. Can you tell him to get his shit together and make sure they record that cover? Thanks!
