Against Me!

Against Me! has released the official music video for their song “Black Me Out.” Directed by Joshua Mikel and featuring graphic black & white animation, along with shadow puppetry and live footage of the band, the video for “Black Me Out” tells the story of Transgender Dysphoria Blues‘ rousing closer and frontwoman Laura Jane Grace‘s aggressive dismissal of the pessimistic. Check out the music video

Against Me! is currently touring behind the release of Transgender Dysphoria Blues, an album that entered the Billboard Top 200 at #23, the band’s highest charting position in its 15+ year history. Running through April 6, the tour will take in 18 more evenings across the Midwest, West Coast and Canada, and support on the entire run will be provided by Laura Stevenson and Cheap Girls. Information on tickets for the upcoming tour can be found on the band’s website, http://www.againstme.net/tour.

Transgender Dysphoria Blues, Against Me!’s six full-length album, was released on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 via the band’s own label, Total Treble, in North America, Resist Records in Australia and Xtra Mile Recordings to the rest of the world. The album is now available for purchase through all digital retailers as well as the Total Treble webstore where exclusive vinyl and bundles are currently being offered. To celebrate the release of the album, Against Me! recently performed their song “FUCKMYLIFE666” on The Late Show With David Letterman. Watch the band’s performance on the show HERE.

Transgender Dysphoria Blues, an album recently called “one of the most incisive and life-affirming rock albums of the ’10s” by SPIN, is the intense follow-up to the band’s previous full-length, 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 of The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Against Me! will be making the following appearances throughout North America this Spring with Laura Stevenson and Cheap Girls. Tour dates below.
