At last, a new Against Me! album is on its way! Their long-awaited sixth studio effort, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, captures Laura Jane Grace’s rich, thought-provoking songwriting about gender dysphoria as well as other themes of loss, discovery and self-acceptance. It arrives January 21 via Against Me!’s own Total Treble label.

In August, Grace hit the road to test some of the new tunes with acoustic stops at The Bowery Ballroom and Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory. Check out new track “FUCKMYLIFE666” from the Bowery show below.

The 10-song set follows the Gainesville, Florida punk outfit’s 2011 White Crosses LP and was mixed with Billy Bush (Muse, Tegan and Sara). Longtime guitarist James Bowman and drummer Atom Willard lend their talents to the collection, as does NOFX’s Fat Mike, who contributes bass to tracks such as “Unconditional Love” and “FUCKMYLIFE666.” A full North American jaunt is expected to follow in 2014.

1. Transgender Dysphoria Blues
