About Against Me!

Against Me! formed originally as a solo act, the brainchild of ultra musician Laura Jane Grace, who at the time recorded under the name Tom Gabel. Grace would typically perform alone but occasionally with stage musicians, but wrote and recorded all their material on their own. Grace would bounce around between various record labels, over time picking up additional members including percussionist Kevin Mahon. It wouldn't be until 2000 that Against Me! had its first official release, with a 2001 follow up that would allow the band to gain real traction in the national music scene.

Against Me! would see the addition of Dustin Fridkin on bass, but soon see the loss of Mahon whose seat behind the drum kit would be filled by Warren Oakes. James Bowman rounded out the band on guitars, creating a full lineup for the first time in Against Me!'s history and paved the way for the release of their first full length in 2002.

With the success of their debut, Against Me! moved to Fat Wreck Chords and began recording for their second album. They would be scouted out as one of the most formidable up and coming independent artists on the music scene for the decade, and released a slew of hit singles alongside their newly recorded album. They built on their momentum with two releases that would be major for the band's growth: a documentary titled We're Never Going Home, detailing the events of their 2004 tour, and a live album from a London performance that showcased their now international appeal and fanbase.

By the late 2000s, the band was constantly recording and constantly on tour alongside huge acts such as the Silversun Pickups and Billy Talent. Things continued heating up, but the constant ups and downs of tours took their toll on the members. Warren Oakes would depart the band, and the band would eventually drop out of a tour scheduled for Oceania to take a brief hiatus. The band's plans remained up in the air for nearly a year, as they left their old label and had more lineup shakeups. Eventually they created their own record label, Total Treble Music, which has been home base for Against Me! ever since. The band is now back on track and is touring on their most recent album, which dropped with much fanfare in early 2014.


Previous Hits

Against Me!'s first major release came about in 2002 with Against Me! Is Reinventing Axl Rose. The album would set the initial course for their signature style and be the definitive starting point to their steady rise in prominence and popularity. The album received perfect and near perfect marks from Sputnikmusic and Allmusic, respectively, and set expectations for their sophomore follow up. Against Me! as the Eternal Cowboy displayed the band's first appearance on the charts, eventually hitting the #36 position on Billboard's US Indie chart.

Just two years later, the band released Searching for a Former Clarity, a huge success that hit the #1 spot on US Heatseekers and #9 on US Indie. Huge charting successes would become par for the course as their next three albums - New Wave, White Crosses, and Transgender Dysphoria Blues - all charted at the #20, #7, and #2 positions, respectively.


Trivia

The band's lead singer, now known as Laura Jane Grace, grew up and previously identified as male. While she was previously known as Tom Gabel, today Grace has undergone hormone therapy and became one of the first major figures in the music industry to out themselves as transgendered. This experience underpins the emotional direction of the band's most recent album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues.
