Florida punk band Against Me! are currently in the studio in Los Angeles working on their second album for Sire Records with veteran producer Butch Vig. Vig produced the band’s 2007 album New Wave and is known for his work with Green Day, Nirvana, and Smashing Pumpkins, among many others.
Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel began writing the songs that will appear on the album more than a year and a half ago. Pre-production with Vig began in early July and the band, which also includes guitarist James Bowman, bassist Andrew Seward, and new drummer George Rebelo (formerly of Hot Water Music) began tracking in mid-August.
Look for Against Me!’s new album from Sire Records in 2010.
