Laura Jane Grace & the Mississippi Medicals debut with the fiery single “All Fucked Out,” recorded with Matt Patton, and announce a U.S. tour leading up to a special Riot Fest performance.

Laura Jane Grace & the Mississippi Medicals have arrived with their debut single, "All Fucked Out," signaling a potent new chapter for the acclaimed artist. The band, a formidable assembly of talent including Matt Patton of Drive-By Truckers on bass, punk stalwart Mikey Erg on drums, and Paris Campbell Grace on vocals and percussion, promises to inject a fresh dynamism into the rock scene. The single, recorded at Dial Back Sound in Water Valley, Mississippi, under Patton's watchful eye, showcases a raw, unapologetic energy.

The origin of "All Fucked Out" is a tale as compelling as the track itself. In 2021, Grace challenged herself to craft a song in the vein of the current #1 hit—BTS’s "Butter." Reflecting on her own experiences, she contrasted BTS's smoothness with her own gritty reality, coining the phrase "All Fucked Out" to encapsulate a state of absolute exasperation. This self-imposed creative challenge yielded a song that has since become a live favorite, finally finding its definitive form in the Mississippi studio sessions.

Grace's poignant lyrics and the band's tight, punchy instrumentation combine to deliver a track that resonates deeply with listeners. The collaboration with Patton, Erg, and Campbell Grace has brought out a visceral quality in the music, ensuring "All Fucked Out" stands out as a significant entry in Grace's extensive catalog. The single's release is accompanied by the announcement of a string of U.S. headline dates in September, culminating in a standout performance at Chicago’s Riot Fest from September 20-22. At Riot Fest, Grace will also join forces with the Philadelphia ska band Catbite for an Operation Ivy-themed set, adding another layer of excitement to the festival.

Fans can expect support from Catbite and Taylor Hollingsworth on the tour, promising an eclectic mix of punk and rock influences. Tickets are available now via Grace's website, ensuring audiences across the Midwest, South, and East Coast have the chance to witness this new powerhouse in action.

As the band gears up for these live dates, anticipation builds for the forthcoming EP from Laura Jane Grace & the Mississippi Medicals. The specifics of this debut EP remain under wraps, but if "All Fucked Out" is any indication, listeners are in for a bold, unfiltered musical experience. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks.
