againstme-truetrans

Against Me! just released a new acoustic EP, True Trans. For a limited time, you can download it for free. It’s the first release from the band since frontwoman Laura Jane Grace, formerly Tom Gable, came out as transgender. AM! has an entire album in the can, so True Trans might be a stripped-down version of what we can expect from the as-yet-untitled record.

The lead track, College, is proof of that both musically and lyrically.
