Xtra Mile Recordings are excited to announce that Florida punks Against Me! have signed to the label in a worldwide deal (ex. North America and Australia) for the release of their highly-anticipated sixth full-length album Transgender Dysphoria Blues.
Out on 20th January 2013, the album is preceded by the release of new song ‘FUCKMYLIFE666’ available as an instant download for those who pre-order the album via iTunes, and to stream here:
Transgender Dysphoria Blues is the intense follow-up to the band’s previous full-length album, White Crosses (reissued with bonus disc Black Crosses on Xtra Mile Recordings in 2011) 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’.
Transgender Dysphoria Blues will be supported with a full UK and European tour in 2014. Details to be released soon.
