The Skinny: Against Me! have recently released the first song from the upcoming full-length. Titled “FUCKMYLIFE666,” the track was recently released on Against Me!’s acoustic True Trans EP but receives the full-band treatment on the upcoming album that will be released through the band’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). Transgender Dysphoria Blues is now available for pre-order through iTunes.
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.”
