Backstage at Lollapalooza: Against Me!
Florida's punk heroes trip us up with Talladega Nights impressions, stories of new pal Bill Paxton.
We’ve spent a lot of time with Against Me! lately, from our chat with them at Coachella to their unforgettable appearance at our summer BBQ last month, and, of course, when we profiled them for the August issue of Spin. After a scorching set during Lollapalooza’s equally scorching afternoon heat, the quartet joined us in our tent backstage for some icy cocktails and some quiptastic banter. Watch as we cover topics as diverse as Talladega Nights, their new friendship with actor Bill Paxton, their forthcoming video for “Thrash Unreal,” and the first few weeks of touring behind their brand new album, New Wave.
And after we talked about all of those things, the band turned the mics on SPIN.com’s own Peter Gaston, peppering him with ridiculous questions. Be sure to watch to the end for guitarist James Bowman’s Perry Farrell impression.
