Brendan Kelly (Lawrence Arms) releasing new LP, touring, shares “Shitty Margarita”
Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms, The Falcon, and more is releasing a new Brendan Kelly and the Wandering Birds album, Keep Walkin' Pal, on October 26 digitally and on November 23 via Red Scare Industries physically. Brendan made it with filmmaker Nick Martin, Derek Grant of Alkaline Trio, and Dan Tinkler from Atlas Studios. Lead single "Shitty Margarita" and its lyric video are out now, and it's got Brendan's unmistakable rasp in fine form, with some bright synths in the mix too. Check it out below.
