Against Me! – “White Crosses” (Stereogum Premiere)
Next week Against Me! release White Crosses, the band’s followup to the 2007 major label crossover New Wave. Our first taste, “Rapid Decompression,” felt more muscular than ’07. “I Was A Teenage Anarchist,” not so much. In case you ignored the non-dramatic album leak, see which way the guys go via an official listen to the title track. Personally, it’s impossible to hear an anthem like this without imagining new member Franz Nicolay shouting along.
White Crosses is out 6/8 via Sire.
