Against Me! have shared a second song from their highly anticipated Transgender Dysphoria Blues, the Florida punks' sixth album and first since singer Tom Gabel became Laura Jane Grace. "Black Me Out" features her trademark earnest delivery and non-nonsense lyrics: "I want to piss on the walls of your house / I want to chop those brass rings off your fat fucking fingers / As if you were a kingmaker." Considering the new one will arrive via the band's own Total Treble label, it seems highly likely our heroine is here railing against her former major label overlords.

Physical and digital pre-orders are already up for the January 21 release, the latter coming with an instant download of the previously heard, highly anthemic "FUCKMYLIFE666." Against Me! will embark on a winter tour on December 31 accompanied by new bassist Inge Johansson of the (International) Noise Conspiracy.
