For Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace, sometimes you have to get the hell out just to find your way back in. The past 12 years have seen Grace rise from acoustic folk-punk gunslinger in the dive of Gainesville, Florida to releasing Against Me!'s four searing, blood-smeared slices of scrappy punk. Every band talks about their new record being that giant step forward. And few band have the chops to back it up, but Grace can, due to her growing maturity as a songwriter.
