    I recorded an album. It’s a solo album, except that it’s not cause my friends @atomwillardisme & @yaytour did it with me. Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers. It’s going to come out this fall on @bshq. I’ll tell you more specifics about the album soon, I promise. pic.twitter.com/wFwO1GX1PP

    Bloodshot Records is very excited, humbled and somewhat giddy to announce a working partnership with Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers. The label will release the group’s debut album in the fall of 2018. While a release date and album details are still to come, today the band announced they will play a run of special shows in the Midwest this coming November. A full listing of dates can be found below and on Bloodshot’s official site [HERE](https://t.e2ma.net/click/vo5v0/v0iicm/nqlzgf) with tickets going on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday, August 3.
    Grace had the following to say about the partnership:

    “I’ve been a longtime fan of Bloodshot and the artists they work with. Having spent the past year working on a record without knowing where its home was going to be, when I discovered that the Bloodshot offices were only a couple of blocks away from my apartment I went in and asked if they’d consider giving the songs a home. They were cool enough to hear me out and oblige. I couldn’t be more happy about the work we’re going to do together and sharing it with the world.”

    For Bloodshot’s part, the chance to work with such a compelling artist at a point in her career when she is expanding her creative energies was pretty well irresistible.

    Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers are Laura Jane Grace, Atom Willard, and Marc Jacob Hudson. Grace is a musician, author, and activist best known as the founder, lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Against Me! Willard, also of Against Me!, is a drummer who has played in iconic punk bands such as Rocket from the Crypt, Social Distortion, and The Offspring. Devouring Mothers bassist Hudson is a recordist and mixer at Rancho Recordo, a recording studio and creative space in the woods of Michigan, and the sound engineer for Against Me!

    Against Me! has toured with Bloodshot artists Murder By Death, William Elliott Whitmore, and Cory Branan and, in 2017, Grace appeared on the lead track “I Only Know” on Branan’s album Adios.

    I might go to a Chicago show just to see one of my favorite working drummers up close. Atom is so fun to watch.

    He rules! I've seen Social Distortion many times but the best show I saw them was when he was in the band.
