Lagwagon front man Joey Cape has discussed the future of the band in a recent interview with Exclaim.


Cape also announced that the band's bass player Jesse Buglione has most likely left the band.


"I can be honest and say that I'm pretty sure we don't have a bass player. I think our bass player, Jesse [Buglione]… he would probably sit in a room with me and say, "Don't say that," but he's basically quit our band. He's made it pretty clear that he can't keep touring because he has to have a real job and make a living. He has a child and a mortgage; that's real stuff, I get it. I totally get that, I don't think anything bad about that at all, but that makes it hard for me to be motivated about doing things with the band because there's only a few original members in the band.


It's a weird thing when I think about that band. It's hard to give any kind of good answer. It's always just kind of a little bit of sadness. But I'm always up for doing something with that band. I would really be into doing the one-song thing with that band. because making a record is such a drag with a band. It just takes so much time. I think something like what I'm going to do is a great idea for Lagwagon. It would be super easy for us to get together once a month and write and record a song, or do two or three every few months."


Lagwagon released their "I Think My Older Brother Used to Listen to Lagwagon" EP in 2008.
