Franz Nicolay Joins Against Me!

The Hold Steady’s loss is Against Me!’s gain? Looks like it. Per a press release that went out this afternoon: “Against Me! has welcomed a fifth member to their touring line up — former Hold Steady keyboardist Franz Nicolay … Nicolay will join the band onstage every night lending his immense talents and presence.” And his mustache. Should be fun: He has his Dead Kennedys-inspired songs, they have their teenage anarchists. As mentioned previously, Against Me!’s fifth album White Crosses is out 6/8 via Sire.
