Ever the businessman, Fat Mike of course had a method to his madness. Says Kelly: “He made a good point, or at least I’m attributing this point to him. (He said) ‘the way people consume music these days is that they just go on Spotify and check something out. Wouldn’t you like to have a bunch of good songs in one place so everybody can just go there and you can make sure they’re not getting something that’s not that representative of your band? A greatest hits record is a great way to do that!”
The Lawrence Arms are releasing a career retrospective album, including five previously unreleased songs, called We Are the Champions of the World. It’ll be out May 30th via Fat Wreck Chords. Pre-orders are now up. You’ll find the track listing and the band’s upcoming tour dates below.
