Against Me! Announce January Tour, New 7"

Florida punks Against Me! announced a slew of headlining US dates this January and February, with Cheap Girls and Fences supporting. The band will be touring in support of their fifth studio album, "White Crosses," released by Sire/Warner on June 8th, 2010. "White Crosses" was produced by veteran producer Butch Vig (Green Day, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins) who also produced Against Me!'s 2007 album "New Wave."

Against Me! is singer/guitarist Tom Gabel, guitarist James Bowman and bassist Andrew Seward, and 2011 will see new drummer Jay Weinberg (Madball, The E Street Band) joining them on the road. Tickets for a handful of shows are currently available but the majority will go on sale this Friday, December 10th.

Garnering much critical acclaim, with SPIN.com claiming "White Crosses... Gabel is at his best when he's feisty: "Spanish Moss" and "Rapid Decompression" feel closest to New Wave's sweet spot of fury and flash.," and Kerrang commenting " Tom Gabel is still firing off socially conscious songs with every fiber of his body and those songs are still honest, blue-collar punk belters.". Rolling Stone added "the songs on White Crosses are "righteous, churning, gut-rollers." Nylon Guys praises lead singer Tom Gabel as "a staggeringly prolific songwriter."
