Polyvinyl Record Co. and Emmy-nominated artist, author, activist and musician Laura Jane Grace (AGAINST ME!, THE DEVOURING MOTHERS) have announced the release of “At War With The Silverfish”, Grace’s brand new seven-song EP. Half recorded at Grace’s TinyQuietStudio in Chicago, Illinois and half recorded at Electric Eel in St. Louis, Missouri and mixed by her DEVOURING MOTHERS bandmate Marc Hudson, “At War With The Silverfish” is the follow-up to her critically acclaimed solo album “Stay Alive” and finds Grace in a range of stripped-back, poignant modes that amount to an honest and holistic account of our shared humanity. Additionally, Grace will be performing solo this fall and winter supporting “At War With The Silverfish”, making Midwest and East Coast appearances and supporting THURSDAY in December. Tickets for all shows are on sale now. “These are songs of late-night madness and loneliness, orphan songs that came wandering in looking to feed like insects,” Laura Jane Grace says of “At War With The Silverfish”. Unafraid to spotlight open wounds and tangled feelings, Grace conveys the distinctive pluck that has defined her work with AGAINST ME! and THE DEVOURING MOTHERS, but with the intimate energy of home recording with an acoustic guitar. The album…Continue Reading

UNDEROATH has shared “Pneumonia”, the third single off its upcoming seventh full-length album, “Voyeurist”, set for release on January 14, 2022 via Fearless Records. “Pneumonia” is a sonic and lyrical voyage through death, partly inspired by the passing of guitarist Tim McTague’s father. Clocking in at just over seven minutes, the track shows UNDEROATH continuing to push their boundaries as a band, serving as one of the most melodic and experimental songs in their career. As the track progresses, the listener is met with eerie guitars, pulsating drums, and an earth-shaking switch from Aaron Gillespie’s lush vocals to Spencer Chamberlain’s intense screams. On the writing process, McTague elaborates: “We started writing the song, randomly, on the anniversary of my dad’s death, and to release it exactly a year from that day is wild. I was in a funk and wanted to make something sad but felt drained. The song ended up becoming an audible journey of death and is called ‘Pneumonia’ because that is what was listed on my dad’s death certificate. It’s also the only song in the history of the band that Spencer and Aaron sat someone down and asked them (me) to help write some of the lyrics,…Continue Reading
