Against Me! have released a brand new music video!
The new video, for the track Haunting, Haunted, Haunts, is taken from the band’s latest studio record Shape Shift With Me which was released last year. Speaking about the latest album, vocalist Grace says, “tons of people have written about love. But while love is cliché, it’s infinitely relevant. For me, having always been in a punk band that was expected to be political, I never felt like I had that option to write about feelings in that way. That’s what I ended up being drawn to this time. It’s writing in a way I thought I could never write before, and not giving a shit about expectations. Is there a record that is about relationships from a trans perspective? There needs to be more records about trans rights and everything like that, but feeling like I already did that, I wanted to move on to write commentary on living from a trans perspective. I wanted to write the transgender response to the ROLLING STONES’ Exile On Main St., Liz Phair’s Exile In Guyville and the STREETS’ A Grand Don’t Come For Free. All those records are relationship records. There’s been an infinite amount of records talking about what love means from a cisgender perspective. I wanted to present the trans perspective on sex, love and heartbreak.”
