Against Me! has returned to its punk-rocking ways with the release of “F–KMYLIFE666,” the first single from the band’s forthcoming new full-length, Transgender Dysphoria Blues.
Dedicated fans of the band should already be familiar with the tune, with singer Laura Jane Grace releasing it in acoustic form on the True Trans EP from this past summer, which for a time was given away for free on the Against Me! website.
“Chipped nail polish and a barbed wire dress/Is your mother proud of your eyelashes/Silicone chest, and collagen lips?” Grace sings on the high-energy guitar-powered track that finds Grace contemplating her status as a transgendered female. “How would you even recognize me?”
The band’s upcoming new album was recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 (as seen in the movie Sound City), with “F–KMYLIFE666” featuring Fat Mike of the band NOFX on bass. Transgender Dysphoria Blues is scheduled for release on January 21 via the band’s own label, Total Treble, followed by a full-scale North American tour.
