in Music News/New Music by

Against Me! have released the full album stream of its forthcoming studio album, “Shape Shift With Me.” Stream it HERE.

Against Me! also recently announced the release of the music video for “333.” Directed by Ione Skye and starring her friend of 20 years, Natasha Lyonne of Orange Is The New Black, as well as Welsh actor Andrew Howard who plays an electric, 1960s-inspired husband, the video for “333” illuminates a push/pull relationship between repression and free sexuality that speaks for the tension found within the song itself. “This project attracted a lot of talented people: an incredible director of photography, producer, costume designer, editor and set designer,” Skye mentions. “I felt very supported and inspired.”

Additionally, the band has announced its upcoming North American fall tour dates that will both include headline appearances and dates with Bad Religion and Dave Hause. A full listing of dates can be found below with tickets and information on Against Me!’s official website, http://www.againstme.net.

Raging, tender, organic, erotic and liberating…an album that hits both the brain and the body,
simultaneously and without apology. – NPR

Recorded, mixed and engineered by Marc Jacob Hudson (Taking Back Sunday, Saves The Day) at Rancho Recordo, “Shape Shift With Me” will be released on the band’s label Total Treble (in partnership with INgrooves) and is now available for pre-order on Amazon (LP, CD) and iTunes where instant downloads of album tracks “333,” “Crash” and “Haunting, Haunted, Haunts,” a song Rolling Stone recently deemed “a rollicking, swaggering stomper,” are now being offered for those who purchase the album ahead of its release next week.

“Tons of people have written about love. But while love is cliché, it’s infinitely relevant,” Grace says. “For me, having always been in a punk band that was expected to be political, I never felt like I had that option to write about feelings in that way. That’s what I ended up being drawn to this time. It’s writing in a way I thought I could never write before, and not giving a shit about expectations.”
