Against Me! have taken a break from recording their next album to perform live on US institution Late Night With Seth Meyers. Watch them tear through ‘True Trans Soul Rebel‘ below.
“We’ve been writing all tour,” Laura Jane Grace told Upset ahead of Reading Festival. “Musically, they’re songs that are fun to play. It’s about wanting to have fun. I’ve always wanted to have fun but this feels different, not caring what other people fucking think.
“It’s not like I have a list but I don’t feel done. Half the band is new so there are very real reasons why it feels new. It feels like there are new things you could do musically or you haven’t reached your full potential as a four piece based on everyone’s musical abilities. In the past there were moments where I felt the four of us couldn’t do anything more interesting but now there’s that much more to work with. It’s more of a challenging thing as well. Playing with Atom and Inge, they are amazing musicians so when they came into the band, James and I were like ‘Fuck, better pick up our game and practice a bit’. Feeling challenged by the people you’re playing with is a big thing.”
