Against Me! are a punk rock band from the US who have been together since 1997. In that time they have released seven albums, including the critically acclaimed “Transgender Dysphoria Blues” in 2014. This is a somewhat autobiographical album for Against Me! lead vocalist Laura Jane Grace, who came out as a trans female in 2012. The band’s early years were tumultuous. They released limited demo tapes and EPs before touring the East Coast in 1999. As their popularity grew, they were able to afford to travel with more equipment and in a van, rather than Grace’s 1976 Buick LeSabre. However, the van was hit by a truck in 2001, causing damage to the vehicle and equipment inside, though the band members were unhurt. The band broke up briefly, though they came back to record another EP later that year.
The band’s first album “Against Me! Is Reinventing Axl Rose” was released in 2002, and it received very positive reviews for its unapologetic punk spirit and influence. Their subsequent albums, “Against Me! as the Eternal Cowboy” and “Searching for a Former Clarity” did well in charts, and boosted their popularity over the world. They toured the latter album in all 50 US states and visited countries abroad to tour. Over 2008 and 2009 Against Me! toured with the Foo Fighters, Billy Talent and Silversun Pickups, but took a break in 2010. In 2011, Grace stated that she wanted the band to release a new album every year, and “Russian Spies/Occult Enemies” was released that year. The band also started their own label and built a recording studio in Florida. Over the next year, Grace would come out as transgender to her bandmates, which was a huge step for them as a band. Two members departed and Grace toured solo to promote the album “Transgender Dysphoria Blues”. The album became their most commercially successful, and was acclaimed for being raw, and reminiscent of Against Me!’s early work.
