“Laura Jane Grace still barks her lyrics with fiercely assertive intelligence. The end result is just as catchy and anthemic as the terrific speedball punk records that precede it.” – NPR
“Crisp, distinct and vibrant” – The New York Times
“One of the most incisive and life-affirming rock albums of the ’10s.” – SPIN
“It is a lacerating, powerful work that is universal in its sweep and wrenching
in its detail.” – The Washington Post
Transgender Dysphoria Blues is the intense follow-up to the band’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 NOFXon 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 continue to tour North America and the rest of the world throughout 2014. Tour dates to be announced shortly.
