Bloodshot Records and Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers have announced that on November 9 they will release band’s full-length debut album titled Bought to Rot.
You can expect 14 tracks spanning Grace’s fractured relationship with her adopted hometown of Chicago, true friendship, complicated romance, and reconciling everything in the end.
Listen below to the album’s first single, “Apocalypse Now (& Later)”.
Bloodshot Records previously announced the working partnership with Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers, in which Grace said the following: “I’ve been a longtime fan of Bloodshot and the artists they work with. Having spent the past year working on a record without knowing where its home was going to be, when I discovered that the Bloodshot offices were only a couple blocks away from my apartment I went in and asked if they’d consider giving the songs a home. They were cool enough to hear me out and oblige. I couldn’t be more happy about the work we’re going to do together and sharing it with the world.”
