We are ecstatic to announce that Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers' debut album Bought to Rot will be released on November 9th!! Hear new song "Apocalypse Now (& Later)" and read an interview with Laura about the album right here via Rolling Stone.
Pre-order the album on digital, CD, or deluxe red vinyl LP OR bundle it with a radical exclusive t-shirt!
14 tracks spanning Grace’s fractured relationship with her adopted hometown of Chicago, true friendship, 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.
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. Leading the showcase is the album’s first single, “Apocalypse Now (& Later),” a touching track about witnessing the end of the world with the person you care about the most, can be streamed on all digital platforms HERE. Grace recently spoke with Rolling Stone about the album in further detail. Read about it HERE.
