Against Me! will be giving away their new EP for free on the band's website. Singer Laura Jane Grace tweeted yesterday that True Trans will be available for "a very limited time" for anyone who provides an e-mail that the download may be sent to. 

True Trans includes songs "FuckMyLife666" and "True Trans Soul Rebel," which describe Grace's experience of transitioning from Tom Gabel, a process she made public when she came out to Rolling Stone last year.

Against Me! is currently working on finishing the follow-up to 2010's White Crosses, but the new album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, doesn't have an official release date yet. 

Grace recently announed a solo tour where she will preview songs from the new album. The mini-tour is set to kickoff in Philadelphia on August 10th and wrap in New York at the Bowery Ballroom on August 16th.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
