Against Me!: Yet another hit band to come out of Gainesville, Florida, Against Me! has thrilled audiences around the world with unrivaled energy and crazy tour dates. From their punk beginnings to a currently alternative sound, Against Me! has found popularity with fans and critics. The band's latest album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, has continued a musical evolution that has been embraced by audiences from all over the world.

Lead singer Laura Jane Grace began Against Me! as an acoustic solo project in 1997, slowly acquiring a drummer and bassist as the years went on. The band released a number of demos and played tour dates attended by no one before adopting electric guitars and releasing Reinventing Axl Rose in 2002. Agasint Me! scored a hit in 2003 with the release of As the Eternal Cowboy, which was praised by critics and caught the attentions of numerous major labels. With a hefty major label contract, Against Me! achieved mainstream stardom with New Wave in 2007, supported by the hit single, "Thrash Unreal."

2010's White Crosses saw similar mainstream success, and featured the popular hits "Rapid Decompression" and "I Was a Teenage Anarchist." ON the album, Against Me! shed all evidence of their gritty punk sound in favor of a much more refined alternative rock style. Apparently feeling they overshot the mark, the band's next album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues returned to their original tenacious punk style; a visceral sound no doubt inspired by the struggles of front woman Laura Jane Grace.

With the change in the band's dynamic and sound, fans can't wait to see what Against Me! has in store next. Keep checking Eventful for the latest tour dates from Against Me!
