Against Me! announce spring tour as first of 2020 plans
Against Me! will finish out the year doing the same thing they always do–playing their hearts out.
This Friday the 13th, the band—vocalist/guitarist Laura Jane Grace, guitarist James Bowman, bassist Andrew Seward and drummer Atom Willard—land in Buffalo, New York, for a performance at Buffalo RiverWorks. The band will take a break before Christmas to head out to Austin and spending New Year’s Eve at the Summit Music Hall in Denver, Colorado.
Against Me! will spend the first part of next year writing and recording the follow-up to their 2016 release, Shape Shift With Me. Beginning in March, the band will resume with Stef Chura opening nearly all of the dates.
Grace teased it as the “first tour of 2020,” which can only mean the band have a big year in store.
The vocalist beat the hell out of 2019 with a workaholic fury. The band recently completed the 2 Nights/4 Records/48 Songs tour where they played four albums (2005’s Searching For A Former Clarity, 2007’s New Wave, 2010’s White Crosses and 2014’s Transgender Dysphoria Blues) in five different cities. Grace and drummer Willard also enlisted producer Marc Hudson to play bass for her solo project, Laura Jane Grace And The Devouring Mothers, whose debut album Bought To Rot was released by Bloodshot Records in November 2018. The trio toured extensively this year, as well.
Tickets for the March 2020 shows go on sale this Friday, Dec. 13 at 10 a.m. local time. Anything else you need to know can be gleaned from the band’s site right here.
