Laura Jane Grace from Against Me! Has announced solo tour dates for 2015. Her show titled Killing Me Loudly, An Evening of Existential Dread, Fiending and Gender Dysphoria In The Brilliance of Life’s Headlights, will feature locations in Los Angeles and New York City.
Grace’s solo performances serve as a follow up to Against Me!’s most recent album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues. These performances will offer an intimate setting where audiences get a personal behind the scenes look at the songs through Grace’s perspective.
This is not the first time that Grace has offered fans heartfelt solo performances apart from her band, Against Me!. In 2013 Grace had a solo tour following her year-long transition to become a woman. Grace, who then went by Tom Gabel, received an outpouring of support from fans for opening up about her journey and including them in the process.
As for Against Me!, the group was recently named “Outstanding Music Artist” at the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. According to a press release this award serves to “recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives. The GLAAD Media Awards also fund GLAAD’s work to amplify stories from the LGBT community and issues that build support for acceptance.”
Links to tickets for the show can be found below along with the official list of upcoming performances featuring both Grace solo and Against Me! as a full band. More North American dates are expected to be announced in the near future. Any further information or updates on the shows can be found on the group’s official website.
