Lagwagon is an American United States punk rock band originally from Goleta Goleta, California , just outside Santa Barbara, California. Their name comes from the band's old tour van, which can been seen on the back cover of the album Trashed. The band has 10 releases through Fat Wreck Chords: seven studio albums, one EP, one live album and a collection of B-sides, compilation tracks and demos.
The band went on hiatus around 2000 and reunited in 2002, releasing the album Blaze Blaze (album) the following year. In 2004, frontman Joey Cape released a split album with No Use for a Name vocalist Tony Sly featuring acoustic versions of songs by both bands. On November 1, 2005, Lagwagon released Resolve Resolve (album) , which is a homage to the life of Derrick Plourde, original drummer for Lagwagon and Bad Astronaut. Lagwagon's most recent release is the 2008 EP I Think My Older Brother Used to Listen to Lagwagon. Despite earlier reports that the band would begin recording their next studio album by 2009, Lagwagon is currently on hiatus from touring and writing. Most recently, Cape has been going solo, releasing Bridge Bridge (Joey Cape album) in 2008 and Doesn't Play Well with Others in 2009.
Cape is also a member of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes and The Playing Favorites, and was previously in Bad Astronaut.
In January 2010, Joey Cape announced during an interview with Canada's Exclaim! magazine that Jesse Buglione has left Lagwagon, having been with the band since its foundation in 1990. However, Cape dismissed rumors of Lagwagon breaking up. While he's not sure if Lagwagon will ever make a new album or embark on another full-scale tour, he's open to playing shows and possibly recording and releasing new Lagwagon songs sporadically. JesseJesse Buglione confirmed his departure on Lagwagon's official message board himself, as reported by sputnikmusic.com and punknews.org..
