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.

td#right {display:none !important;} A new year brings with it the chance to look ahead after a few weeks of looking back over our shoulders. In musical terms, we can start to think about the artists who’ll capture our attention on summer festival stages, or during opening slots for existing favourites. We can ponder the singles that’ll leap from radio waves or playlists into the fabric of our day-to-day. Here we’ve assembled 10 artists we believe will make 2019 one to remember—some of them are about to release debut records, others are starting to pound the pavement in support of music that deserve time to shine.
