THE LAWRENCE ARMS aus Chicago sind bei Epitaph untergekommen. Im Statement der Band heisst es auszugsweise:
"We’re super excited to announce that the Lawrence Arms have signed to Epitaph. We went and visited them in LA, we had some laughs and some grilled cheeses. We talked to Brett underneath the original painting of the Against the Grain cover (awesome!) and we thought that, shit, what better way to come back from a long break than on the label that put out most of the records that got us into punk rock in the first place? You know what? That’s all true, but sheesh…why do we even need to explain this to anyone?"
