Final yr, the (former?) In opposition to Me! chief Laura Jane Grace launched her superb solo album Gap In My Head. Later this yr, she’s teaming up with ska band Catbite to play Operation Ivy tribute units at Riot Fest and on the Virginia ska pageant Supernova. Now, Grace is introducing a brand-new band referred to as Laura Jane Grace & The Mississippi Medicals, they usually’ve simply dropped their debut album.

With the Mississippi Medicals, Laura Jane Grace has the Drive-By Truckers’ Matt Patton on bass and the Ergs’ Mikey Erg on drums. The actor and comic Paris Campbell Grace, Laura Jane’s spouse, performs percussion and sings. Matt Patton produced the band’s debut single “All Fucked Out,” a playful sea shanty that Grace imagined as her reply to the BTS hit “Butter.” Right here’s how she explains it:

Again in 2021, I sat down in my workplace to do some songwriting. Not figuring out what particularly to put in writing about that day, I challenged myself to put in writing a tune much like regardless of the present #1 hit on the planet was on the time. I made the problem to myself with out figuring out precisely what that tune was, so I needed to look it up, and because it turned out at that second, the present #1 tune on the planet was “Butter” by BTS. Now, for these of you not aware of the tune “Butter,” it’s about how the singer is “easy like butter.”

“Hmmm…,” I assumed to myself. “In the event that they’re easy like butter, what am I?” And the reply to that query is “All Fucked Out” — to not be confused with “All Fucked Up,” thoughts you. “All Fucked Out,” as in zero fucks left to present. The tune shortly grew to become a staple in my stay set, and I’ve taken a pair totally different earlier makes an attempt at recording it, however it wasn’t till Me, Matt [Patton], Mikey [Erg] and Paris [Campbell Grace] obtained collectively this previous December in Water Valley, Mississippi at Matt’s Studio, Dial Again Sound, that all of it got here collectively and the tune was recorded the way in which it was meant to be heard.
