Indie rock group Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers have announced that they will be releasing their debut album, Bought To Rot, via Bloodshot Records on November 9th.
As per the album announcement: “The 14 songs focus around themes of Grace’s fractured relationship with her adopted hometown Chicago, complicated romance, and reconciling everything in the end. Bought to Rot stands as the most musically diverse collection of songs Grace has written to date, featuring the raw grit and powerful energy of Against Me!, as well a style more undefinable and songwriting focused. Inspired in large part by Full Moon Fever, the first album Grace ever owned, Bought to Rot finds her at the same age Petty was when he created his solo debut masterpiece. In light of his recent passing, Grace was motivated to pay homage to one of her lifelong heroes.”
