Celebrated American rock band Against Me! have announced they will be heading out this May for a run of Australian headline dates to celebrate the release of their new album, Shape Shift With Me.

They will be in the country as part of the Groovin The Moo lineup and will be playing additional shows in Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne, Wollongong, Sydney and Perth supported by Melbourne’s own Camp Cope.

Tickets for all shows (excluding Groovin The Moo) go on sale at 9am local time on Thursday, February 9.

Four years ago, Against Me! front woman Laura Jane Grace came out as transgender; 18 months later, she released the band’s sixth album, the fiery Transgender Dysphoria Blues, one which she began working on before her transition and helped document the struggles she was facing.

Four years after Grace’s public reintroduction, Against Me! released their new album, Shape Shift With Me in September 2016. An album about love that deceptively complex emotion we all struggle with yet has somehow eluded most of Grace’s song writing for the past 20 years. In November, front woman Laura Jane Grace released her memoir titled TRANNY: Confessions of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout. TRANNY is a searing account of Grace’s search for identity and true self.

Joining Against Me! is Melbourne’s Camp Cope who have toured tirelessly since their inception: shows with Modern Baseball, Screaming Females, PUP and Cayetana, a headlining slot on Weekender Fest, a national Laneway Festival spot and a string of their own sold out shows.

Against Me! reveal the support acts who will be opening each show on the upcoming Australian tour in May with Camp CopeTickets for all shows are on sale now.
