Against Me! covered The Mountain Goats (watch), streaming RSD 7″
Against Me! are the featured artist on the second episode of Apple Music and George Stroumboulopoulos’ intimate concert video series, House of Strombo, where artists are filmed playing a house show in Stroumboulopoulos’ living room. The Against Me! show, which you can watch in full below, is thirteen songs long, with songs from the band’s most recent release, 2016’s Shape Shift With Me alongside older songs, like “The Ocean” off 2007’s New Wave (here with Lucas Silveira from The Cliks as a guest). At 42:11, Laura Jane Grace does a solo cover of “The Best Ever Death Metal Band In Denton,” a song from one of her self-described “all time favorite songwriters,” The Mountain Goats. Watch that cover, and the rest of the show, below.
Against Me! also recently released a limited edition 7″ picture disc for Record Store Day with two new tracks, “Stabitha Christie” and “First High Of The Morning.” If you didn’t get your hands on a copy (the edition was limited to 4000) you can now stream the new songs below.
Speaking of recent covers Against Me! have done, head HERE to watch them cover The Replacements with Georgia Maq of Against Me!’s Australian tourmates Camp Cope (who are playing the US for the first time soon).
Against Me! tour North America as headliners again with Bleached and The Dirty Nil starting in September, including shows at Brooklyn Steel on October 14 (tickets) and The Stone Pony on October 15 (tickets). That tour wraps up at The Fest in Gainsville, FL, where AM! will play Reinventing Axl Rose in full.
