Against Me! Is Searching For A Former Clarity On FAT Tour





Florida-based punk rock (soon-to-be) giants Against Me! will release their second Fat Wreck Chords album on September 6. Called Searching For A Former Clarity, the album is an instant classic and the band's most accomplished release to date. Proving to any doubters that they are, in fact, the real thing, the AM! guys will on tour from September 1 - December 5. Did you catch that? That's 70+ dates on the road in the span of three months!!! (yes, it deserves three exclamation points). They will begin their never-ending trek in style, playing two dates with Green Day and Jimmy Eat World at Giant's Stadium in NJ and at the Gillette Stadium in Boston ("Gillette" Stadium? ugh...).


They'll then play a few shows in their home state before returning to the Big Apple for a CMJ show at Irving Plaza with Coheed & Cambria. The very next day, the band will head out on the 50-state FAT Tour '05 where they will headline the entire stretch of shows, playing alongside bands like Epoxies, Smoke Or Fire and The Soviettes. So you might say they'll be busy.

The band's first single from the new album, "Don't Lose Touch", is impacting radio now, so keep an ear peeled. For all the tour info.
