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.

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'."

Against Me! will be touring through the States with The Sidekicks and The Shondes. Dates are in the replies.

Update: Looks like they've been taken down now.

We've known the title for over a year now, but Against Me! made it official this morning, announcing that their new album will be called Transgender Dysphoria Blues and will be released January 21, 2014. Hit the replies to check out the totally bizarre album art and the track listing.
Chris Collum on 10/24/13 - 08:51 AM
Against Me!'s new album will be released next year.
Yes. It’s done. It’s mastered. We’re finishing artwork. It’s hard to keep in perspective that, “Okay, the time will go quick [before we release it].” There’s a part of me that’s just like, “Put it on the Internet now. Let’s go!” Because the recording process took so long, I feel like we’re those runners at the end of a marathon collapsing as they come across the finish line. Their legs are giving out underneath them, they’re vomiting everywhere, and they’re just wrecks.

According to Laura Jane Grace's (Against Me!) Twitter account, she recently had five guitars stolen from her. The guitars are described as: Ric 4001 Bass, A Ric 360, A black on black tele, a blue Jazzmaster and a '76 blonde P-Bass. She has asked anyone with any information on the stolen guitars to contact her via her twitter account.
