Against Me!

Before becoming a full-fledged punk band, Against Me! was an acoustic solo project spearheaded by Laura Jane Grace, who began playing shows as a 17-year-old in Gainesville, Florida. Starting in 1997, Grace performed as a solo act wherever anyone would have her, drawing much influence from early acoustic protest music. By 2001, she'd beefed up her sound with the help of a full band -- including guitarist James Bowman, drummer Warren Oakes, and bassist Andrew Seward -- but there would always be some anarchism and Billy Bragg in the group's raucous braggadocio. After a few initial 12" and 7" releases, Against Me! issued the fan favorite Reinventing Axl Rose in 2002. The underground hit blended elements of punk, folk, and country into socially conscious and impassioned anthems. Continuing their reputation of always being on the road, the musicians logged countless tour dates around the country in support of their early material.

A slightly more polished album, As the Eternal Cowboy, was released in 2003 on the indie label Fat Wreck, followed by a compilation of that album's demos titled The Original Cowboy. After the release of a DVD (We're Never Going Home) and another 7", the band returned with its most mature effort to date, 2005's Searching for a Former Clarity. A subsequent headlining tour in support of the introspective, politically aggressive album saw Against Me! proudly hitting every U.S. state, and they signed with Sire Records in December 2005. Later they issued a rough version of Searching for a Former Clarity, titled Total Clarity. They were back on the road by spring 2006, this time opening for the Alkaline Trio, and spent the summer months playing the main stage at the Warped Tour. Though Against Me! were officially signed to Sire's roster, they released their last indie album in the form of Americans Abroad!!! Against Me!!! Live in London!!!, a concert album recorded while on tour in London with Murder by Death.

In July 2007, the band's major-label debut -- New Wave, a decidedly more rock-oriented record produced by Butch Vig -- hit shelves. New Wave was the first album by Against Me! with no acoustic tracks; it was also their first on a major label's tab. Reviews were generally favorable, and the band toured heavily in support of its release. By the summer of 2009, drummer Warren Oakes had officially left the group to pursue an alternate career as a restaurateur, eventually opening up a Tex-Mex eatery in Gainesville. Hot Water Music's George Rebelo joined in his place, and the revised lineup re-enlisted Butch Vig to produce the White Crosses album, which appeared in mid-2010. White Crosses debuted at 34 on the Billboard 200 and Against Me! were prepared to launch an international tour when they canceled a planned leg through Australia and New Zealand in September of 2010. Two months later, the band parted ways with Sire, and then prepared for some end-of-the-year shows with Jay Weinberg sitting in for Rebelo on drums, a move that was made permanent early in 2011. That spring, the demos collection Total Clarity appeared on Fat Wreck Chords, and as Against Me! started work on a new album, they launched their own record label called Total Treble Music; that year, Grace also opened an Elkton, Florida-based recording studio bearing the same name.

In a May 2012 interview with Rolling Stone, Laura Jane Grace went public with her gender dysphoria, announcing her plans to transition to living as a woman and abandon her birth name, Tom Gabel. Against Me! began working on a new album called Transgender Dysphoria Blues in 2012 and, a few months after the interview, the band played its first dates since Grace's news. Toward the end of the year, Weinberg left the troupe and, the following May, Against Me! announced bassist Andrew Seward had left the band. Laura Jane Grace continued working with guitarist James Bowman and the band released Transgender Dysphoria Blues to wide acclaim in January 2014. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

Pandora get your s**t straight.. it was spearhead by Tom Gabel who later became Laura! We can't forget who once were
❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ love love love Against Me!
Laura's my f**king queen.. She is so fantabulous! Imma ftm boy and even I can relate to her music. Just the she pronoun part obviously lol

Also as far as the bios go, there is nothing hateful about calling a person by their name at the point in history. For example, the correct historical context would be spearheaded by Laura Jane Grace, then going by Tom Gabel. To act as if that name was never used is overly sensitive and ignores history. It's like referring to what is now modern day New York as New York when speaking about that land in 1000 B.C.E. in order to be sensitive to what current residents prefer to call it.

I'm tired of people over using the suffix -phobic. A phobia is an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something. People expressing surprise by a person announcing they are something different then previously thought does not imply an extreme fear of that group. Also lack of support that is derived only from loyalty to specific religious doctrine does not equal fear or hatred. Nor does disagreement on terminology. They may just be in the camp of linguistic prescription .
I can't believe people are still so phobic about trans people its sickening that we consider our selves a modern society and yet we still have stone age beliefs.
The VERY BEST live act out there
What is with the misgendering of Laura Jane Grace? SHE went public with HER transition and SHE spearheaded their band. Have some f**king respect.
Laura is my idol oh god I love her, their new record is amazing.
Just seen band for first time in buffalo New York couple weeks ago was one of the best concerts I've been too and I've seen a lot I hope I can see them again energy great love the music
Seeing them live is the most amazing thing, I saw them in June 2012 right after Laura Jane Grace made her announcement , and the energery of the whole crowd cheering and pumping their fists during Ocean was the best feeling in the world to be a part of!
This band helped me through high school.... your the best Laura!
johnbutindar o
One of the last good bands out there.
This freaked me out This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry This freaked me out This isn't fake.

Laura Grace is my f**king IDOL.
AM! Has always been one of my favorite bands. They are audible raw emotion that I just can't describe. They have brought me to tears many times. Especially Thrash Unreal. Actually sometimes I just have to skip that song when it comes on because it always makes me cry. Anyway they are a rare talent. Lots of good memories listening to this band.

committed hate crimes against transgender people (especially trans women and other CAMAB individuals) so the only people who are allowed to use it are CAMAB people reclaiming it for themselves (CAMAB stands for coercively assigned male at birth)
I'm sorry for being so long winded, but I just really needed to get that out there. Also, I agree with slappin15, they really need to change the bio.

the level of stigma that is put against it in our culture.
4. Being trans* is not the same as crossdressin g (also as a sidenote, don't refer to crossdressin g as being a transvestite , that's an archaic term used by people who thought that gender noncomformin g people needed to be fixed, and who did all sorts of horrible things to them
5. Don't call people tranny, I actually haven't seen that here, but it's a good thing to note. It is a horrible oppressive slur used by many people who have (cont.

name and pronouns she uses now, she was always a woman, she just wasn't out about it until recently, so don't say things like turning into a woman and the like.
3. Holy f**k, being transgender does not mean you aremessed up in the head or whatever other bs I've seen people saying. Its just something that happens sometimes in nature where a person's sex gets screwed up (not the best wording but whatever) it is not their choice and I have no idea how some cis people can think that with (cont.

woah, okay. so this comments section is filled with sickening amounts of transphobia and transmisogyn y and as a trans* person i kinda feel like i should educate some of you people about what was wrong with what you said.
1. Sex is biologic. Gender is how a person identifies and is much more important. You should use pronouns based on people's gender (or whatever they specifically tell you is okay to use) not on their sex
2. Even when referring to Laura in the past, you should use the (cont.)
So is he/she going to still be able to sing?

Love Against Me! So what Tom's now Laura?
jkbateman11
This Band still Rawks!
I'm sad that the bio doesn't mention Kevin or Dustin. I love Against Me!, but really enjoyed their early acoustic stuff. Seeing Tom (at the time) & Kevin play in the back room of the legendary Sound Idea record store, is one of my all time favorite memories.

Still, I'm glad to see them continually progress as musicians, and people.

Burn down the whitehouse - The Scams
Someone ought to change her name in the bio from Tom to Laura. Misgendering is not cool, y'all. Transphobia isn't cool either, Casket Case.
@Casket Case That's funny I recall his music has always been very linear with his life... See: Searching for a Former Clarity.

Confessing childhood secrets, of dressing up in women's clothes

I don't think you're actually listening to the music. I think you'd much rather hold onto your silly homophobia (except he's not gay so... anti-transve s t i t e - i s m ? ) then just listen.
Perfect shirt idea for these guys: Front- picture of Tom Gabel with the words Against She! above his mug shot. Back- Against Me Is Against He's
Favorite Punk band by far all the way up until New Wave came out. From there it was all down hill. Tom gave up on all his supposed beliefs and then decided he was a woman. Guy has a few screws lose and can't write music for sh*t anymore.
Most down to earth band EVER! love you guys and woman haha!
Good f**king band
SURE AM HAPPY I NEVER GOT A TATTOO OF ANY OF THEIR CD'S!
I sadly missed the Against Me! show that was recently in Denver...rea l l y looking forward to checking them out next time they come to town...the Rolling Stones article on Tom's (Laura's!) gender change was fascinating! )
GO LAURA!
AGAINST SHE FOR THE WIN!!!
heyhihelloan d i
Good for Laura! (Most would know him as Tommy) I cant wait to hear against me with Laura!!
well....tom gabel is now going to be a woman so......yeah
jonny.knoxvi l l e
just saw tommy and chuck in rock island il last tuesday. Tom has the best voice in the world and live he is just amazing.
sharkytm
You can catch Tommy Gabel on the Revival Tour, with Chuck Ragan and several other amazing acts. Cheap, too!
Band rules.
I saw these guys live on a date, and went back to see them everytime they came into town! Fantastic show every time! Sad that it costs much more to see them now.
i HEART A.M!
They rock. Bands mature, as do people, and it is reflected in their music. Raw and honest, I couldn't ask for anything more.

I don't see why people get mad. They pretty much acknowledged that they're growing up and getting developing different tastes. It's not like they're pretending it's the same as the old stuff. This all besides the fact that it's pointless to put out the same album twice. A band has to change. I like their old stuff too, and maybe their new stuff less, but there's still good things in it, and it appeals to a different music listener than I.
you think so? i mainly judge bands on thier live perfomances, dispite the fact that whte crosses was weak on a sliding scale from new wave, but hey, that album was iconic. and its pretty much to do with leaving the scene. still a great live show! but getting old is a part of how things adjust and pass on. and punk is a hard line to walk. s'what we pretty much love about it.
White crosses is an absolute disappointme n t .
@Benjamin Cadd: THANK YOU. Everything was 100% true (and hilarious)
Nothing will ever beat Searching For A Former Clarity. Its by far one of my favorite albums ever
saw 'em in the basement of a church with 25 other people and it was f'ing amazing. so glad i got to see them
Good Stuff
