As previously reported, Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace will preview material off the band’s long-awaited new album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, with a short solo tour this August. She’s also putting out a tour-only 7″ EP entitled True Trans, featuring two new songs.
“FuckMyLife666” and “True Trans Rebel Soul” comprise some of the most personal and visceral material the band’s released in quite a while. Their simple structure and deeply personal, often poetic lyrics hearken back to the days of 2002’s Against Me! Is Reinventing Axl Rose, though Grace has traded the heavy angst for a sense of balance and focus.
For a limited time, the EP is available to download or stream for free. Grab your copy in exchange for an e-mail address.

As for Against Me!, you can catch them at this years Riot Fest Chicago during the weekend of September 13th-15th and at Riot Fest Denver during the weekend of September 21st-22nd.
