Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! was interviewed by Dying Scene.
I guess when I was younger and I first got into punk, what attracted me to it was it seemed more about fighting back than taking it. I liked the political aspect of it. It seemed more intelligent than other forms of rock music, at least. But as I got older, I don’t just listen to punk now or whatever. Being labelled a punk band at this point is just kinda by default. It’s not like when we’re coming up with a song as a band we think “no, it’s not punk enough, gotta make it more punk”.

The Wedding released a statement regarding their current status as a band after over a year of being off of the road.
No, we didn't break up. We just went on an unplanned indefinite hiatus (to put it in "band" terms). For those that followed the band since the beginning you know we were road dogs. 200+ shows a year for nearly a decade. We were almost never home. And we liked it that way. We've all learned to love being home, too. It's been more of a struggle to adjust for some than others but all in all this is a good season. Will we play shows again? Maybe. Will we make another record? Maybe. What are the chances? To be honest, I don't think any of us have any idea. Touring and records...
