#26 The Codfather’s Alternative Jukebox

The Codfather‘s “Catch of the Week” is AGAINST ME!

Against Me! is an American punk rock band formed in 1997 in Gainesville, Florida, by singer and guitarist Laura Jane Grace. Since 2001, the band’s lineup has also included guitarist James Bowman. After releasing three studio albums through independent record labels, Against Me! moved to Sire Records for 2007’s New Wave, which reached no. 57 on the Billboard200. In 2011, the band launched their own record label, Total Treble Music, through which to release future albums.

In 2012, Grace publicly came out as a transgender woman. After a long period of line-up changes and uncertainty surrounding the band’s future, their sixth studio album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, was released independently in January 2014 to critical and commercial acclaim. The band’s seventh full-length, Shape Shift with Me, was released September 16, 2016.Check them out on this week’s Alternative Jukebox #26
