Released January 28, 2014. 1. Chilean District Lyrics. What's the deal with the little sound bites in-between some of the songs? Brendan Kelly had this to say to Spin (in 2014) about the lo-fi-recorded conversations and instrumentation on the album: Originally, Chris and I were going to go out and interview each other at bars, restaurants, and just talking on the street in an urban environment. What we found was that that takes a lot of fucking time between recording, especially when it’s unscripted
If it's possible to make a wistful punk album, the Lawrence Arms have made it with Metropole. The standout track "Beautiful Things" churns in an autumnal blaze of distorted major seventh chords and impressively poetic lyrics romanticizing past artistic triumphs. Mortality is examined in tracks like "Seventeener" and "October Blood" with their personal and mournful lyrics.
Chicago's own The Lawrence Arms present release Metropole, their first album in eight years, via Epitaph. A beloved band in the punk scene from their inception in 1999, members Brendan Kelly (vocals/bassist), Chris McCaughan (vocals/guitar), and Neil Hennessey (drummer) have released five studio albums to date. Their sixth album and first with Epitaph, Metropole captures "that alone-in-a-crowd, e-land kind of s t" according to Kelly. The Lawrence Arms sound on Metropole is similar to their younger days, but the lyrics and sound have a rawness to them. It is fitting for a fan that has been listening to these guys through the years. We have gotten older as fans and they as a band.
