Against Me - White Crosses CD 524438-2
"White Crosses" was produced by veteran producer Butch Vig (Green Day, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins) who also produced Against Me!'s 2007 album "New Wave." The decision to work with Vig again was a no-brainer. "He understands our band and brings tons of great ideas to the table," says frontman Tom Gabel. "Beyond the stature of his past work he is also one of the most genuine people I've ever met." As far as the album's overall direction, "I feel like we are constantly pushing ourselves to better what we did on the previous record," Gabel says. "'New Wave' was a great album to make, and now we want to show another side of the band. The new songs feel like a natural progression of where we should be at. Our intentions, as always, are to deliver the best record we can possible make."
