Against Me! Leave Sire, Recruit Weinberg The Younger To Drum

    It’s been a tumultuous few months for punkers Against Me! The band cancelled its fall tour without explanation and then immediately signed on for another one with Dropkick Murphys. The group also announced that Jay Weinberg, son of E-Street Band drummer Max, will be handling drumming duties for the shows, as regular drummer George Rebelo will already be on the road with Hot Water Music. The parental lineage of the band’s temp drummer was slightly obscured, however, by the fact that the band is leaving Sire Records. Tom Gabel was appreciative to the label in a recent blog post, but gave no reason for the departure or indication of the band’s future plans. [Consequence of Sound]
