Against Me! in the Studio

New Album From Florida Quartet Due Next Year

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 5, 2006 -- Gainesville, Florida, genre-blending quartet Against Me! have entered a Los Angeles studio with famed producer Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage). The band's debut record for Sire Records will be released next year.

Against Me! is guitarist/vocalist and founding member Tom Gabel, guitarist James Bowman, drummer Warren Oakes and bassist Andrew Seward. Gabel began writing songs for the forthcoming release while living in a hotel. The band's previous studio album, the well-received "Searching For A Former Clarity," was released on indie label Fat Wreck Chords in September 2005. Against Me!'s most recent offering is the incendiary live recording entitled "Americans Abroad!!! Against Me!!! Live In London!!!," which was recorded on March 21, 2006 at Mean Fiddler in London.

With the band's 2007 release on the horizon, Against Me! is excited to be making what Gabel describes as an album that will make people "put it on and go 'f**k, yeah!'"
