A little over a week ago it was reported that former Against Me! bassist Andrew Seward played a show with the band in Detroit (as well as shows in Cleveland, OH and Lansing, MI). According to a recent Instagram post, Laura Jane Grace confirmed that Seward is officially back in the band. Against Me!'s last full-length was Shape Shift With Me , which was released in 2016. You can read the full statement below.
As some people may have noticed there’s been some change happening within @againstme recently and the shows we played in Detroit, Cleveland and Lansing a week ago were Andrew’s first shows back with the band in over 5 years. I don’t really know how to succinctly explain the reasons behind this happening so I’m going to pass on trying. All I want to say is that I love Inge, am forever thankful for our time playing together and what I learned from it and wish him nothing but the best in life. Been going through a period of great change in general lately and this is probably not the last time this year I’m going to have to ask that people be understanding of a choice made, there’s no maliciousness behind my intentions, I just gotta go after what I want. We head back out on tour again last week of July and 1st week of August. Dates in my bio! Photo by @joeleonard
