Sorry Folks, No Image Is Here.

Against Me! have announced a Winter tour with The Sidekicks and The Shondes. The band’s new album Transgender Dysphoria Blues will be out January 21st and you can hear one of the songs from the album down below. The tour begins on Tuesday, December 31 in Pittsburgh, PA at the Altar Bar. The tour will stop in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, January 9 at Rough Trade.

Against Me! have also recently released the first song from the upcoming full-length. Titled “FUCKMYLIFE666,” the track was recently released on Against Me!’s acoustic True Trans EP but receives the full-band treatment on the upcoming album that will be released through the band’s own Total Treble label in North America on Tuesday, January 21 (Resist Records will release in Australia and Xtra Mile Recordings to the rest of the world.)

Transgender Dysphoria Blues is now available for pre-order through iTunes HERE, and those ordering the album will receive an instant download of “FUCKMYLIFE666” with their purchase. Additionally, a physical presale for the album can be found in the Total Treble webstore, which offers exclusive vinyl and bundles not available anywhere else.

Transgender Dysphoria Blues is the intense follow-up to the Against Me!’s previous full-length album, White Crosses, and stands as another major benchmark for the band and its career spanning 10+ years. Recorded at Studio 606, Earth Sound Studio, Motor Studio, Total Treble Studio and mixed by Billy Bush (Garbage, Muse, Tegan and Sara), Transgender Dysphoria Blues is an insightful and highly-provocative 10-song offering written by frontwoman Laura Jane Grace, whose material examines one’s grappling with gender dysphoria, the loss of a young friend and pure self discovery, as well as love and ultimate acceptance. Featuring Grace’s signature, explicit songwriting and dominant vocals, the album also features longtime guitarist/vocalist James Bowman, drummer Atom Willard and Fat Mike of NOFX on bass for “FUCKMYLIFE666” and “Unconditional Love.”

With its lineup firmly in place that includes new bassist Inge Johansson, Against Me! will be making the following appearances during December and January. Tour dates below.
