Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote On 2007's NEW WAVE, Against Me! mastermind Tom Gabel leads his loyal troops into strange new territory known as the major label. Once diehards get over the one-two punch of their favorite Floridian punk-folk act jumping to Sire Records and taking on a fairly straight-ahead rock sound, they are likely to find plenty of memorable tunes that both embrace and subvert the pop aesthetic.
Muze PNote Case in point is "White People for Peace," a catchy track that skews protest songs while showcasing the group's amped-up work with revered alt-rock producer Butch Vig (Nirvana, Garbage). Although the gruff-voiced Gabel and his crew may have lost some fans in their shift to the majors, Against Me! is sure to garner many more admirers with NEW WAVE, an intriguing album that features an outspoken outsider working within a system that he used to oppose.

Producer: Butch Vig

Artist Overview

Although their Butch Vig-produced major label debut was released in 2007, Gainesville, Florida's Against Me! existed a full 10 years before that, growing from Tom Gabel's solo acoustic joint into a full-fledged, old-school punk band. That trajectory hints at the surprising variety of sounds that the band employs on its records--including acoustic guitars and the occasional horn--as it resists the confines of by-the-numbers punk. Relentless touring and a hearty DIY ethic, rather than label support, helped the band win over legions of fans, who are drawn to Gabel's fiery authenticity and fresh, melodic take on a potentially tired sound.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.90)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Tempos are up half a notch, and Gabel's loudspeaker vocals go for clarion boldness."

Rolling Stone (p.108)
- Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Top Albums of the Year 2007" -- "[T]hese Florida punks truly capitalize on the righteous anger they have long been known for..."

Spin (p.97)
- 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "NEW WAVE stomps like big-budget radio rock , all swarming guitars and gang-vocal thrust..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.69)
- "Against Me! has blossomed into a polished protest-rock band..." -- Grade: B

Alternative Press (p.159)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[They] have focused themselves musically, providing a much tighter, rock-influenced record than the rest of their catalog. Replacement influences abound, with huge, anthemic, straight-ahead choruses..."

Kerrang (Magazine)
- "[I]t's uplifting, motivational, moving, agitating, honest, enthralling....It's also one of the greatest albums you will hear in 2007..."

Kerrang (Magazine)
