Against Me! (an American punk rock band) began as an anarchist solo act in Gainesville, Florida in 1997. After transforming into a traditional four-piece a few years later, they quickly became a driving force in the punk scene. After releasing three studio albums through independent record labels, Against Me! moved to Sire Records for 2007’s New Wave, which reached no. 57 on the Billboard 200. In 2011, the band launched their own record label; Total Treble Music, through which to release future albums. After a long period of line-up changes and uncertainty surrounding the band’s future, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, their sixth studio album, was released independently in January 2014 to critical and commercial acclaim.
