Against Me! will perform four classic albums in their entirety during select dates of a North American tour set to launch this fall. The trek features two-night stands in five cities, Los Angeles, Toronto, Sayreville, New Jersey, Boston and Baltimore. The first night, Against Me! will perform 2005’s Searching for a Former Clarity and 2007’s New Wave, and on the second they’ll play 2010’s White Crosses and 2014’s Transgender Dysphoria Blues.

The run opens October 12th and 14th at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles and wraps October 24th and 25th in Baltimore. Tickets go on sale May 17th at 10 a.m. local time.

In a statement, Laura Jane Grace said of the full album shows, “While working on new music this year — before we move forward into the future — we thought it would be fun to revisit the past, the albums that got us to where we are now. Like chapters in a book, there’s a narrative that flows through these four albums that we’ve never had the chance before to present in this context, as one complete story. I’m excited to share the songs as a whole in this way. This is probably the closest I will ever come to being a part of a ‘Rock Opera’ of any sorts.”

Against Me! will receive support from several different groups during the tour: Chuck Ragar and toyGuitar will open the shows in Los Angeles, while Dilly Dally and Chris Creswell will perform in Toronto. Dilly Dally will continue to serve as support throughout the rest of the run with Cursive.

Against Me! also have a handful of performances scheduled for this May, while after their October tour, they’ll deliver full album performances at the Fest, the annual punk festival held in the band’s hometown of Gainesville, Florida. This year’s Fest takes place November 1st through 3rd.

Against Me! released their most recent album, Shape Shift With Me in 2016. Last year, Grace and her new band, the Devouring Mothers, released their debut LP, Bought to Rot.
