Against Me! vocalist Laura Jane Grace has announced she will be publishing her memoirs in collaboration with Noisey‘s own Dan Ozzi, with Tranny: Confessions of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout,slated to hit shelves November 15 via Hachette.
“The book mixes narrative about Laura’s life — growing up with dysphoria and playing in our generation’s most influential punk band — with amazing journal entries she’s been keeping since she was a kid,” Ozzi told Entertainment Weekly.
Grace revealed her intentions to release her memoirs alongside the release of Against Me!’s critically acclaimed 2014 album Transgender Dysphoria Blues. Grace came out as transgender in early 2012, further detailing her struggles with gender dysphoria in an interview with Rolling Stone in May of that year.
The group have also announced that they’re currently working on their forthcoming seventh LP, announcing earlier this month that tracking has begun, with the record currently slated for a midyear release. Grace further commented on the currently untitled release, stating that it’s already distinguishing itself “really different” from Transgender Dysphoria Blues.
“The last record was an isolating experience and a solo endeavor in a lot of ways – not to diminish anyone else’s roles, but it was a really personal record,” Grace stated. “I want this one to feel like we’re all in it equally. We’ve been having a really good time playing with each other. We’ll see what that means sonically, but that’s the vibe.”
