The announcement follows the band’s earlier cancellation of their 2020 spring tour, initially slated to conclude a month earlier than the co-headlining trek. Refunds can be found at level of buy.
“I hope that it’s apparent that this is absolutely not at all what any of us want, and if we had any real choice in the matter we would for sure be out on the road this May,” frontwoman Laura Jane Grace stated in an announcement. “But given the current worldwide situation, we have no other choice but to cancel this amazing tour that we have all been looking forward to since its conception. My definite hope is that this tour does still happen at some point in the future when able.”
Grace has been in quarantine at residence in Chicago in the course of the pandemic. “I have been completely isolated and alone here in Chicago, dropping acid, smoking grass and watching TV news,” she just lately told Rolling Stone, including that she spends “at least three hours a day in my bathtub with a humidifier with eucalyptus oil in it going.”
Against Me! is presently engaged on a follow-up to 2016’s Shape Shift With Me. “Right now I’m trying to grasp and struggle with the idea of, ‘All right, how do you record and release an album in 2020 and not have it be completely eclipsed by the election?’”
