Against Me! Announce Spring 2014 North American Tour


Against Me! Announce Spring 2014 North American Tour

Against Me! is excited to announce their upcoming Spring 2014 headlining tour. Touring behind the release of their critically acclaimed new album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, an album that entered the Billboard Top 200 at #23, the band's highest charting position in its 15+ year history, the band will begin its North American run on March 9 in Omaha, NE and will take in 21 evenings across the Midwest, West Coast, Canada, and make its way to Austin, TX, for this year's SXSW Music Festival from March 12-14. Support on the entire run will be provided by Laura Stevensonand Cheap Girls

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.

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 Bluesis 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.
