Laura Jane Grace had no intention of releasing a solo album this year. In fact, she had planned to record a new album with Against Me!, the band she has fronted for the past 23 years. But, clearly, nothing went as planned this year. "We got back from the Against Me! tour in March, and right before we left, we were in the studio working on songs, and I had been working on them for months," Grace explains. All of her tours had been canceled, and the members of Against Me!, as well as her other band Laura Jane Grace & The Devouring Mothers, were scattered across the country, leaving her with a batch of songs and no band to record them with.
