Against Me! continue to challenge the boundaries of punk rock with the release of their third full length album, Searching For A Former Clarity. In an effort to further develop their sound, while ensuring that their mix of punk, folk, country, and blues was properly represented in the recording, Jay Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines) was brought on as engineer/producer.
The resulting 14 tracks tell a tale of the highs and lows of the band’s experience with their growing popularity, and their struggle to maintain their identity throughout. All of the gritty, heart-felt intensity that has filled Against Me!’s music from day one comes through on this recording! Since their inception, a relentless touring schedule has enabled the band to build a devout fan base, in turn doubling record sales from their first record (Reinventing Axl Rose).
With the success of their last FAT album, As The Eternal Cowboy, and their DVD We’re Never Going Home, we’re confident that Searching For A Former Clarity will follow, if not surpass the trend.
