The Skinny: Against Me! have released another song from their highly anticipated full-length album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues. Titled “Black Me Out,” the song’s acoustic version has been road-tested extensively by frontwoman Laura Jane Grace but receives the full-band treatment on the band’s forthcoming album that will be released through Against Me!’s own Total Treble label in North America on Tuesday, January 21 (Resist Records will release in Australia and Xtra Mile Recordings to the rest of the world). Check out a stream of Against Me!’s “Black Me Out” just above!
Transgender Dysphoria Blues is the intense follow-up to the band’s previous full-length album, White Crosses, and stands as another major benchmark for the band and its career spanning 10+ years. Recorded at Studio 606, Earth Sound Studio, Motor Studio, Total Treble Studio and mixed by Billy Bush (Garbage, Muse, Tegan and Sara), Transgender Dysphoria Blues is an insightful and highly-provocative 10-song offering written by frontwoman Laura Jane Grace, whose material examines one’s grappling with gender dysphoria, the loss of a young friend and pure self discovery, as well as love and ultimate acceptance. Featuring Grace’s signature, explicit songwriting and dominant vocals, the album also features longtime guitarist/vocalist James Bowman, drummer Atom Willard and Fat Mike of NOFX on bass for “FUCKMYLIFE666” and “Unconditional Love.”
