Against Me! Leave Sire Records, Address Cancelled Tour Issues, And Announce Touring Plans

This past October Against Me! announced that they would be canceling all of their remaining tour dates for 2010. Without word as to why, the band was quick to announce a 2011 tour with The Dropkick Murphys. In a huge update for fans, has addressed a number of rumours, and made a couple huge announcements about the bands future. For starters, the band is leaving Sire Records. The band originally had a two record contact with the label, which they filled with their 2010 full length . No word on what label the band will release their next material with, but here’s hoping for Fat Wreck Chords! No, that’s not going to happen. But a boy can dream, right?

In addition to the label announcement, the band has confirmed another 2011 tour with , and . Both this and tour will feature Jay Weinberg (ex-Madball, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, spawn of Max Weinberg), playing drums. No word on what George Rebello will be doing, but let’s all hope this means new Hot Water Music, or The Draft material.

  3. Fat Wreck. I mean, they still seem to be good friends with Fat Mike and that label can still pay a living wage. I woulda picked Epitaph but BOTTLE WAS TOO QUICK.
