Against Me! on Tour This Fall

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - September 7, 2007) - Against Me! have announced the fall leg of their nationwide headlining tour in support of their latest album and Sire Records debut "New Wave," which was hailed by Spin Magazine as "the best rock record in ages" and by Rolling Stone as "one of 2007's best -- and hardest rocking -- records," was released on July 10th. The Gainesville, FL, punk-rock quartet have been on the road since the end of July.

Known for frontman Tom Gabel's politically charged lyrics, roaring vocals, and fist-to-authority ethos, each Against Me! live show is an incendiary experience. Rollingstone.com has called the band "one of the most versatile hard-rock bands around these days" while the New York Times raves: "Who knew that punk rock could sound so, y'know, punk?" In addition, Harp magazine declares: "It's that totality of vision that makes Against Me! one of the most exciting -- and beautiful -- rock bands in a long, long time."

Against Me!, which also includes guitarist James Bowman, bassist Andrew Seward, and drummer Warren Oakes, signed to Sire Records in November 2005 and entered the studio the following year with producer Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage). They have released three other studio albums, including 2005's introspective, genre-defying "Searching For A Former Clarity," which detailed Gabel's Bush-era frustrations in songs like "From Her Lips To God's Ears," 2003's "As The Eternal Cowboy," and 2002's "Reinventing Axl Rose." The band also released a live album in 2006 titled "Americans Abroad!!! Against Me!!! Live In London!!!."

Against Me! celebrated their album release with an appearance on "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" on July 10th and performed on "Late Show With David Letterman" on August 29th. "New Wave's" first single, "Thrash Unreal," is a runaway hit at radio -- being spun around the country on stations like KROQ in Los Angeles, Q101 in Chicago, WFNX in Boston, Live 105 in San Francisco and many more. The song's exhilarating video has been added to both MTV2 and Fuse, and can be viewed via the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKzNZDXfm0Q.
