Against Me! talk about the importance of their live show

Ticketmaster Blogger, Sophie Eggleton, has been talking to Against Me! about what makes their live show so integral to the band.

Speaking backstage at Reading Festival, frontwoman Laura Jane Grace and drummer Atom Willard told how their live show influences their time in the studio.

“I love this band so much because it’s not just the live thing,” explained Atom. “The live thing is a huge, important thing and really hammers it home but the songs are still that good, if I can say so!”

While Laura added, “But I want the challenge to be how do we capture what we do on stage in the studio, as apposed to how do we pull off on stage what we do in the studio.”
