‘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's 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 front woman 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 long time guitarist/vocalist James Bowman, drummer Atom Willard and Fat Mike of NOFX on bass for ‘FUCKMYLIFE666’ and ‘Unconditional Love’.
‘Transgender Dysphoria Blues' is available worldwide at iTunes and all good record store outlets.
