Against Me Band PhotoAgainst Me! have announced their upcoming Winter 2014 headlining tour. Hitting the road in advance of the release of their highly-anticipated sixth full-length album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, the 22-date tour begins on Tuesday, December 31 in Pittsburgh, PA at the Altar Bar and will visit markets such as Cleveland, OH on Saturday, January 4, Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, January 9, Birmingham, AL on Friday, January 17, Nashville, TN on Sunday, January 19, and will culminate in a performance at the Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on Sunday, January 26. Support on the entire run will be provided by The Sidekicks and The Shondes, and more information on tickets can be found on Against Me!’s official website.

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.”
