Against Me! – “Rapid Decompression” Video

Against Me!’s following 2007’s major label crossover New Wave with White Crosses — again produced by Butch Vig — and an accompanying single/digital EP I Was A Teenage Anarchist (ditto). Speaking of teenage anarchists, longtime drummer and Freegan popularizer Warren Oakes left the band after eight years to start a Tex-Mex restaurant. He’s been replaced by Hot Water Music’s George Rebelo. The first official taste of the new material comes via “Rapid Decompression”‘s bare-bones b&w video. A bit more muscular than ’07.

03 “Because of the Shame”
04 “Suffocation”
