Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace recently released a solo LP titled Bought to Rot via Bloodshot Records with the Devouring Mothers, a band she formed with Against Me! drummer Atom Willard and Marc Hudson who is the bassist for the trio and owner of Rancho Recordo in rural Michigan. An album that has received praise from The Associated Press, NPR, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Billboard, Paste, Brooklyn Vegan and many more, Bought to Rot is a record scorched with honesty across its 14 tracks, unapologetically confessional, capturing many moments snipped from Grace's life and stitched together in song. As a complete body of work, the album stands as the most musically diverse collection of songs Grace has written to date, and is what she affectionately calls her "Scorpio" record - redolent in sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.

Remaining busy and constantly writing new music, the members of Against Me! - Laura Jane Grace (lead vocals/guitar), James Bowman (lead guitar/vocals), Andrew Seward (bass) and Atom Willard (drums) - are currently working on the highly anticipated follow up to the band's acclaimed 2016 album, Shape Shift With Me. More information on the new album will be revealed soon.
