Against Me! has had to cancel their upcoming European dates (but not their UK ones).
Due to unforeseen logistical circumstances, we need to reschedule all of the mainland Europe dates of our November tour (11/20-12/10). However we will still be keeping all UK dates[...] Stay tuned for more info as we work to reschedule the cancelled shows in the best way possible. We promise it will be worth the wait

Laura Jane Grace talked with Exclaim about an upcoming Against Me! live album, book, and documentary.
"It's crazy, because at this point, having six studio albums and a bunch of EPs, there are almost a good hundred Against Me! songs," says Grace about the upcoming live album and their storied career. "To have the lineup we have right now and to feel really strong about the way we're playing and to see how those songs that we've been playing for a long time have evolved over however many years... The idea of taking the best of the best and putting together a solid 25- to 30-song record that can reintroduce some songs in their present form and really try to capture what happens when we're...

Check out a video interview with Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace for MSNBC.
“I think that coming out has made me a lot better of a person. It’s made me less of a stressed out person because I don’t have to compartmentalize my life. And just realizing in a lot of ways that you shouldn’t underestimate people and that people will be there to support you and really can surprise you in life,” she said.

I was wondering if anyone was going to comment on this after we posted the video for Arcade Fire's "We Exist" -- but I never really saw anything pop-up. Then, this morning I saw this Tweet from Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace: "Dear arcadefire, maybe when making a video for a song called "We Exist" you should get an actual "Trans" actor instead of Spider-Man?"

Atom Willard, current drummer for Against Me!, sat down with our friends PunkNews.org and there's a lot of great new information in the interview.
There have been a couple times when I thought, "This is it!" Like with Angels and Airwaves, I thought it was the best thing. We had the greatest time and all got along, but circumstances changed when Tom [Delonge] started back up with Blink [182] again and the whole thing took a different turn. So it's all of those things that have motivated me to move on. I'm just an idealist, I guess.

When Against Me! came through Winnipeg on Tuesday I had the opportunity to interview Laura Jane Grace about the band's latest record Transgender Dysphoria Blues.
I feel confident saying we’re a better band than we’ve been before, live especially, which is important. I don’t want to feel like we’re starting to not be as good as we used to be.
Deborah Remus on 04/04/14 - 09:43 AM
Against Me! are already thinking about their next release.
The whole process of getting Transgender Dysphoria Blues out was so long and drawn out and we have a lot of ideas backed up behind it. We are flushing those out now a little, playing around at sound check and whenever we have the time and we are in the right vibe space to just sit around and jam together. The next record will be out a lot sooner in relative terms from White Crosses to this one.

Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! did a Reddit AMA a few days ago and mentioned that the band plan to finish up some of the demos from the Transgender Dysphoria Blues session for a later release.
There are a couple unfinished songs from the TDB sessions that we plan on finishing but not alternate demo versions like with the last records.

In a new interview with Spin, Against Me! details some behind-the-scenes band stuff that I hadn't read before. Like that they found out Jay left the band by reading it on Twitter.
To be honest, I have no idea. He never said a word. I just woke up one morning and read on Twitter that he was leaving the band.

Another new interview with Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!), this one from Bailey Lions at The Music, touches on a few topics I haven't seen written about yet. I think it's worth the read. Also, I have seen some people asking questions in the forums like, "what name should I use and when?" This little "etiquette guide" was linked in a post Laura posted on Twitter, and I think it's a really good resource for those looking to educate themselves on some questions maybe you're too afraid to ask. Read it, bookmark it, share it with others -- and most of all be open to learning and educating yourself on the topic.
Grace goes on to detail one such recent situation, the words tumbling out of her...

Grantland's Steven Hyden has written a great article on Against Me!'s latest release (which, if you have been living under a rock, is streaming here).
“The record almost fucking killed the band,” Grace told me two weeks ago as we sat backstage before a concert in Grand Rapids, Michigan. “It was me and James who finished the record at the most depressing studio you’ve ever been in in your life in Valdosta, Georgia. The walls were all painted black. And, literally, the engineer had a gun strapped to his belt the whole time. It was just, like, the end. It was fucking weird.”

Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! sat down with Paris Lees of NME for a lengthy interview. Also, I posted my first impressions of the band's new album on my blog.
Discussing her own personal happiness one year into the transition, Grace says: "I have issues in my life which aren't related to being trans. Whether that's dealing with alcoholism or drug abuse or manic depressiveness, it's not as simple as coming out and then the world is all roses." Similarly, Grace does not want to be seen as a spokesperson for transgender issues: "It's like my psychiatrist says, 'Just because you're diagnosed with cancer doesn't mean you're an authority on cancer'."
