To celebrate nearly twenty years of tomfoolery, the Lawrence Arms released a hulking 29-song best-of compilation album on Fat Wreck Chords. For We Are the Champions of the World, Neil, Brendan, and Chris reached into the TLA catalog to pick their favorite tunes, and threw in five previously unreleased tracks for great measure.
The band recently recorded a stripped down session in New York City’s Paste Studio. Watch above as they perform “Beautiful Things”, “October Blood”, “Necrotism: Decanting the Insalubrious (Cyborg Midnight) Party 7” and “Seventeener (17th and 37th)”.
