- “I feel like everyone is mature enough to get it where it’s like, it doesn’t mean I’m quitting Against Me! and don’t want to do it. I just need to do this thing,” Laura Jane Grace told Rolling Stone. “When I was arguing with my manager for this new record, my manager was like, ‘It’s a terrible idea. It will split attention between the bands.’ And I was like, ‘Fuck that. That’s what Tom Petty did! He released Full Moon Fever when he was 37 years old and was still in the Heartbreakers. And the Heartbreakers still went on to do many Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers records after that. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.”
