Some records stand the test of time not only for their musical quality, but as a piece of history that draws audiences in no matter if it was released last year or decades ago.
Punk band Against Me! reinforces this idea with a timeless, anthemic punk sound and uncompromising lyrics that snapshot the hypocrisy and ludicrous nature of repetitive societal faults captured in their seven studio records.
Taking four of the seven records on their fall tour, they will divide the four records to be played over two nights in cities across North America.
Kicking off the tour this weekend at the Fonda Theatre in L.A., the band will play albums “Searching for a Former Clarity” and “New Wave” the first night and “White Crosses” and “Transgender Dysphoria Blues” the second night that mark about a decade of the band’s 22-year duration.
On prior tours, lead vocalist and guitarist Laura Jane Grace brought a sense of warmth and unification to crowds through fighting against bigotry and promoting inclusivity as lyrics like “Do you remember when you were young and wanted to set the world on fire?” from song “I Was a Teenage Anarchist” hit that builds the case for their upcoming tour.
