act032 cover Check Out: Against Me!   Russian Spies

Thanks to Mexican food and other bands, Against Me! has gone through a few drummers over the last couple years. With permanent drummer Jay Weinberg in place since the end of 2010, the Florida-based punk rockers are at last ready to release new music with the current lineup. Dropping June 14th, their first release is a 7″ single comprised of “Russian Spies” and its B-side “Occult Enemies”. The former, available for listening now via SPIN.com, is as mature as some of the offerings on White Crosses, but with a hint of their former screaming intensity and all-out energy.

Check out the band’s remaining summer tour dates below. Also, their other new release, a collection of demos called Total Clarity, is available now.
