The Falcon is a Chicago-based punk rock supergroup. The band features The Lawrence Arms members Brendan Kelly (guitar and vocals) and Neil Hennessy on drums, as well as Alkaline Trio's Dan Andriano on bass. Todd Mohney, former member of Rise Against, played guitar on the 2004 EP but could not attend the recording session for the band's first full length "Unicornography" [ [ | The Lawrence Arms Interview - Brendan Kelly ] ] , and his spot was temporarily filled in by Kelly and Hennessy.


Kelly, the creative force behind the band, has said in interviews that the line-up would almost definitely change in order to tour successfully. Specifically, he cited Andriano's role in the Alkaline Trio as making the bass player's availability for touring limited. Kelly and Andriano previously played together from 1993-1996 in the ska/punk band Slapstick.

In December 2004, the band released the EP "God Don't Make No Trash -or- Up Your Ass With Broken Glass". An interesting trait of the EP is that, like the name of the EP, each song has two different names. The EP received a number of positive reviews.

On September 26th, 2006, the band released their first full-length album "Unicornography". The album has a very fast paced, hard sound in comparison to The Lawrence Arms older works, and is more similar in tone and style to their 2006 album, "Oh! Calcutta!". The album also features re-recorded versions of the songs "I'm So Happy I Could Just Cry Myself to Sleep -or- The Routes We Wander" and "Building the Perfect Asshole Parade -or- Scratching Off the Fleas", both of which were originally featured on the band's 2004 EP. In 2007 they made their first music video for the song "The La-Z-Boy 500".
