The Lawrence Arms posted a tweet yesterday to announce that they had "officially entered the studio" to begin work on the long-awaited follow up to 2006's Oh! Calcutta!. The band finished writing the album in January and started demoing earlier this month. The band promised: "fifteen amazing songs and one steaming turd. This'll be one of our top 5 albums."
All three band members have been keeping busy in the years since their last album; Chris McCaughan recorded solo material as Sundowner, and Brendan Kelly formed The Wandering Birds. Drummer Neil Hennessy joined The Smoking Popes and also has been producing at Atlas Studios in Chicago.
