Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! has announced a new project.

The vocalist and guitarist has recorded an album with her bandmate Atom Willard, and Marc Jacob Hudson, who has previously recorded with and been sound engineer for Against Me!.

The new band is called Laura Jane Grace and the Devouring Mothers, while their debut album is expected through independent Chicago label Bloodshot Records later this year. In an Instagram post Grace promised that further details would be announced soon and in a statement she said:

“I’ve been a longtime fan of Bloodshot and the artists they work with. Having spent the past year working on a record without knowing where its home was going to be, when I discovered that the Bloodshot offices were only a couple of blocks away from my apartment I went in and asked if they’d consider giving the songs a home. They were cool enough to hear me out and oblige. I couldn’t be more happy about the work we’re going to do together and sharing it with the world.”

In the meantime, the band have announced a tour for November dubbed Midwest Takeover. They will head to Rock Island, Indianapolis, Lansing and Detroit before finishing up the run with three nights at different venues in Chicago. Tickets go on sale at 10am on August 3.

In early July, meanwhile, it was announced that bassist Inge Johansson had left Against Me! with Andrew Seward, who previously played in the band between 2002 and 2013, stepping in. The four piece are currently on tour in the US with Speedy Ortiz, Typesetter, Lowercase Roses and Grlwood, and in October will head to South America.

Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'

A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.

There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
