Morning Glory's Recent Tour Felt Like a Symbolic Farewell to Ezra Kire's Past, Invitation to his Future
February 23, 2012
Two punk giants have started talking about their new albums. Propagandhi's Chris Hannah has been tweeting during the studio sessions for their upcoming, as-of-yet-untitled sixth full-length, and vaguely slated the release of the album for this summer. "Label secure, but TBA. It's more mysterious that way." He joked. This may be a bit sooner than expected for most fans of the band as their last several albums have had more than four years in between and we've yet to pass three years since Supporting Caste's release.
But even Propagandhi's biggest gap between albums has nothing on The Lawrence Arms. Its been nearly six years since the release of Oh! Calcutta! with nary a peep out of the Chicago natives. Alright, there was that EP in 2009, but I've been whining for a proper follow-up to the new frenzied sound on their last LP for years now; and I might finally get it later this year. Bassist/Co-Singer Brendan Kelly has also taken to Twitter and briefly mentioned an otherwise unannounced new album. No word yet on a release date, name, track listing, number of songs...really anything, but just the fact that they're working on one and it might be coming out this year is enough for me at the moment.
