The Lawrence Arms are a punk rock trio from Chicago, formed in 1999. The lineup consists of Brendan Kelly (vocals & bass), Chris McCaughan
(vocals & guitar), and Neil Hennessy (drums). They have released six full-length albums and are currently signed to Epitaph Records. Their
music and lyrics exhibit their propensity for juxtaposing references from history and literature with American pop culture. The band takes its
name from a building the members resided in (and were later evicted from) called the Lawrence Arms, which was located in the Uptown
neighborhood of Chicago.
