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.

Forming 20 years ago in North Carolina, they emerged just as metalcore and other forms of moody hard rock were beginning to take off. However, they aren't remembered for their contributions to the scene as much as how they subverted its tropes. Drawing from screamo and psychedelic space rock in equal measures, their releases 'No Wings to Speak Of' and 'The Satellite Years' to this day stand up as classics of the genre.

Photo: Paola Baltazar​ Much like prog before it, math-rock hasn't always appeared the most accessible of genres. As a form, it's designed to keep listeners on their toes, directing and misdirecting with syncopated rhythms, jagged melodic progressions and non-standard time signatures. That might not seem like a recipe for commercial success, but if there's one thing Brits can get behind it's art that's awkward, intelligent and self aware.

From Blues Boy To Next Big Thing: The Making of Dan Owen

It’s easy to question the authenticity of any young musician who stirs up a super-sized buzz. Are they merely a record company’s latest marionette? Yet another superficial media darling destined for 15 minutes of fame? Dan Owen certainly generated significant plaudits before his debut album, ‘Stay Awake With Me’, had even been released, but the finished product revealed a special singer-songwriter who, after years of grafting for his shot at the big time, is being lauded for all the right reasons.

Crackling through a speakerphone, Joe Talbot’s voice is calm and level. “I don’t feel any pressure to do anything,” he says. “It’s up to me. I genuinely don’t care what anyone else makes of what I do. It’s up to me to be as honest to myself, and truthful to the band and our art, as possible. The rest is up to you.”

There’d be no record companies or publications trying to shape our tastes. Image would be unimportant. Sales irrelevant. Radio airplay redundant. The only thing that would matter would be the creativity of the musician and how they reflect themselves through their art.
