Blake Schwarzenbach, best known as the singer and guitarist of influential groups Jawbreaker, Jets To Brazil, The Thorns Of Life, and, presently, forgetters, has announced an upcoming double album and a solo tour of Europe.

The album will feature 22-tracks over two discs, and will be titled Christopher Remembers, a reference to the pseudonym Christopher Lager, which Schwarzenbach has interchangeably used over the past several years. No release date or method have yet been revealed.
