Former Against Me! Bassist Andrew Seward Has Rejoined The Band
Against Me! bassist Andrew Seward – who parted ways with the punks in 2013 – has officially rejoined the band.
Singer Laura Jane Grace confirmed the news via an Instagram post, thanking now-ex bassist Inge Johansson and admitting “I don’t really know how to succinctly explain the reasons behind this happening so I’m going to pass on trying.”
Read Laura’s 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.”
Welcome back, Andrew!
