To be celebrated with the autumn 2018 release of the group’s debut album.
Bloodshot Records have announced the group’s debut album to be released in the fall of 2018. While a release date and album details are still to come, the band announced they will play a run of special shows in the Midwest this coming November.
About the partnership, Laura Jane Grace said: “I’ve been a longtime fan of Bloodshot and the artists they work with. Having spent the past year working on a record without knowing where its home was going to be, when I discovered that the Bloodshot offices were only a couple of blocks away from my apartment I went in and asked if they’d consider giving the songs a home. They were cool enough to hear me out and oblige. I couldn’t be more happy about the work we’re going to do together and sharing it with the world.”
For Bloodshot’s part, the chance to work with such a compelling artist at a point in her career when she is expanding her creative energies was pretty well irresistible.
