Laura Jane Grace, best known as the frontwoman of Against Me!, has been performing solo with her band the Devouring Mothers for a few years, and just released the project’s first album. Bought to Rot is out today, and Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers will head out on a lengthy US tour next spring, with a show at Underground Arts on April 19.

The new record sees Grace exploring a variety of influences, venturing into new musical territory while still remaining true to her punk roots. She recently talked to Rolling Stone about her approach:

“My approach musically to the record was that I wanted it to feel like a mixtape. Like OK, you’ve got this Nirvana-like song, you’ve got a Cure song. It was musically freeing, in that way, to just be playing whatever was coming to me as I was writing and not having to think about it.”

 

“I don’t want to write about these same things anymore. I need some new sources of inspiration. And I don’t want to be negative. I want to write some positive, happy songs, and I wanted that to be inspired by positive, happy living, too.”

Tickets are on sale now. Find more information on the XPN Concert Calendar and listen to Bought to Rot below.
