Released on the band’s label Total Treble via Cooking Vinyl Australia and serving as the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed ‘Transgender Dysphoria Blues‘, ‘Shape Shift With Me‘ was released in September 2016.

Shape Shift With Me‘ was produced by Marc Jacob, and is described as a “loose concept album about traveling the world and falling in and out of love“, with Laura Jane Grace serving as the narrator.

Frontwoman Laura Jane Grace also recently released her memoir titled ‘TRANNY: Confessions of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout‘. TRANNY is a searing account of Grace’s search for identity and true self. The book also reveals the struggles and victories that the artist experienced in her quest for gender transition. Written with Noisey editor Dan Ozzi and illuminated by Grace’s never-before-published journal entries reaching back to childhood, TRANNY is an intensely personal and revelatory look inside her struggles with identity and addiction. Grappling with everything from sex, drugs, failed marriages, music, and soul of a punk rock star, this memoir paints a vivid portrait of one of the most revolutionary transgender icons of our time.

You can order a copy of the book [Here] with free worldwide shipping.

A book signing has just been announced and will take place in Sydney at Resist Records in Newtown on Thursday 11th May between 4:00pm – 5:30pm.
