Against Me!

Before becoming a full-fledged punk band, Against Me! was an acoustic solo project spearheaded by Laura Jane Grace, who began playing shows as a 17-year-old in Gainesville, Florida. Starting in 1997, Grace performed as a solo act wherever anyone would have her, drawing much influence from early acoustic protest music. By 2001, she'd beefed up her sound with the help of a full band -- including guitarist James Bowman, drummer Warren Oakes, and bassist Andrew Seward -- but there would always be some anarchism and Billy Bragg in the group's raucous braggadocio. After a few initial 12" and 7" releases, Against Me! issued the fan favorite Reinventing Axl Rose in 2002. The underground hit blended elements of punk, folk, and country into socially conscious and impassioned anthems. Continuing their reputation of always being on the road, the musicians logged countless tour dates around the country in support of their early material.

A slightly more polished album, As the Eternal Cowboy, was released in 2003 on the indie label Fat Wreck, followed by a compilation of that album's demos titled The Original Cowboy. After the release of a DVD (We're Never Going Home) and another 7", the band returned with its most mature effort to date, 2005's Searching for a Former Clarity. A subsequent headlining tour in support of the introspective, politically aggressive album saw Against Me! proudly hitting every U.S. state, and they signed with Sire Records in December 2005. Later they issued a rough version of Searching for a Former Clarity, titled Total Clarity. They were back on the road by spring 2006, this time opening for the Alkaline Trio, and spent the summer months playing the main stage at the Warped Tour. Though Against Me! were officially signed to Sire's roster, they released their last indie album in the form of Americans Abroad!!! Against Me!!! Live in London!!!, a concert album recorded while on tour in London with Murder by Death.

In July 2007, the band's major-label debut -- New Wave, a decidedly more rock-oriented record produced by Butch Vig -- hit shelves. New Wave was the first album by Against Me! with no acoustic tracks; it was also their first on a major label's tab. Reviews were generally favorable, and the band toured heavily in support of its release. By the summer of 2009, drummer Warren Oakes had officially left the group to pursue an alternate career as a restaurateur, eventually opening up a Tex-Mex eatery in Gainesville. Hot Water Music's George Rebelo joined in his place, and the revised lineup re-enlisted Butch Vig to produce the White Crosses album, which appeared in mid-2010. White Crosses debuted at 34 on the Billboard 200 and Against Me! were prepared to launch an international tour when they canceled a planned leg through Australia and New Zealand in September of 2010. Two months later, the band parted ways with Sire, and then prepared for some end-of-the-year shows with Jay Weinberg sitting in for Rebelo on drums, a move that was made permanent early in 2011. That spring, the demos collection Total Clarity appeared on Fat Wreck Chords, and as Against Me! started work on a new album, they launched their own record label called Total Treble Music; that year, Grace also opened an Elkton, Florida-based recording studio bearing the same name.

In a May 2012 interview with Rolling Stone, Laura Jane Grace went public with her gender dysphoria, announcing her plans to transition to living as a woman and abandon her birth name, Tom Gabel. Against Me! began working on a new album called Transgender Dysphoria Blues in 2012 and, a few months after the interview, the band played its first dates since Grace's news. Toward the end of the year, Weinberg left the troupe and, the following May, Against Me! announced bassist Andrew Seward had left the band. Laura Jane Grace continued working with guitarist James Bowman and the band released Transgender Dysphoria Blues to wide acclaim in January 2014.

Transgender Dysphoria Blues was something of a breakthrough, achieving their highest chart placement to date -- it peaked at 23 on Billboard's Top 200 -- and strong reviews. On its supporting tour, Against Me! recorded the material that became their 2015 live album, 23 Live Sex Acts. ~ Johnny Loftus

I love them. A great story with great lyrics and meaning.

I could listen to the old Against Me! albums from start to finish, and all the EPs, right up until White Crosses. That album couldn't hold my attention for the full length, and neither could the ones that followed. They still have 3-4 excellent songs, but I can't listen to them cover to cover. Lost that raw feeling somewhere around New Wave. (Maybe just me - Disappointed . . . a bit).

Also I saw them live and holy crap Laura is an actual goddess she is so beautiful and talented ?? and Atom is the cutest and funniest ever and James is adorable and Inge is so sweet and energetic they're all so amazing I love them so much

Also as far as the bios go, there is nothing hateful about calling a person by their name at the point in history. For example, the correct historical context would be spearheaded by Laura Jane Grace, then going by Tom Gabel. To act as if that name was never used is overly sensitive and ignores history. It's like referring to what is now modern day New York as New York when speaking about that land in 1000 B.C.E. in order to be sensitive to what current residents prefer to call it.

I'm tired of people over using the suffix -phobic. A phobia is an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something. People expressing surprise by a person announcing they are something different then previously thought does not imply an extreme fear of that group. Also lack of support that is derived only from loyalty to specific religious doctrine does not equal fear or hatred. Nor does disagreement on terminology. They may just be in the camp of linguistic prescription .

I can't believe people are still so phobic about trans people its sickening that we consider our selves a modern society and yet we still have stone age beliefs.

You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight.

AM! Has always been one of my favorite bands. They are audible raw emotion that I just can't describe. They have brought me to tears many times. Especially Thrash Unreal. Actually sometimes I just have to skip that song when it comes on because it always makes me cry. Anyway they are a rare talent. Lots of good memories listening to this band.

committed hate crimes against transgender people (especially trans women and other CAMAB individuals) so the only people who are allowed to use it are CAMAB people reclaiming it for themselves (CAMAB stands for coercively assigned male at birth)
I'm sorry for being so long winded, but I just really needed to get that out there. Also, I agree with slappin15, they really need to change the bio.

I'm sad that the bio doesn't mention Kevin or Dustin. I love Against Me!, but really enjoyed their early acoustic stuff. Seeing Tom (at the time) & Kevin play in the back room of the legendary Sound Idea record store, is one of my all time favorite memories.

Still, I'm glad to see them continually progress as musicians, and people.

@Casket Case That's funny I recall his music has always been very linear with his life... See: Searching for a Former Clarity.
