Against Me! Groovin The Moo 2017 Sideshows Announced

Written by Nastassia Baroni on February 7, 2017

US rockers Against Me! have announced a string of Australian tour dates to coincide with their return to the country as a part of the Groovin The Moo 2017 lineup.

Armed with their latest opus Shape Shift With Me, Against Me! will play their own headline shows in Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne, Wollongong, Sydney and Perth. What’s more, they’ll be supported by Melbourne’s own Camp Cope.

Released in September 2016, Shape Shift With Me finds Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace investigating the rather ‘unpunk’ notion of love in a very punk rock manner. Speaking to Music Feeds last year, Laura Jane Grace said much of the album “involved questioning what emotions are exclusive to gender.”

“I’ve had the experience of being full of testosterone, and I’ve had the experience of being full of oestrogen. On this record there are darker, angrier moments which were sometimes euphoria inducing. In those moments I was feeling rage, and I was feeling anger, and those feelings are feelings that I used to attribute to being a highly male thing. So I found myself questioning is that the case, or is anger just anger? Is it not exclusive to a gender like people might think it is?”

Fellow Groovin The Moo artists The Darkness, Snakehips and K.Flay announced 2017 sideshows this morning, and more are set to be announced tomorrow. Stay up to date on all the 2017 Groovin The Moo festival sideshows at our Groovin The Moo sideshows feed.

UPDATE 21/03/17: Against Me! have announced which other acts will be supporting them at their upcoming Australian headline shows. Aside from the already announced Camp Cope, the likes of The Cutaways, Bansheeland, Mere Women and Hope Street have joined the tour. Catch all the details, below.
