Laura Jane Grace & The Devouring Mothers have announced that their debut album is on the way. The band has partnered with Bloodshot Records to release their debut album this fall though no album details or a release date have been revealed yet. In a statement, Grace said: “I’ve been a longtime fan of Bloodshot and the artists they work with. Having spent the past year working on a record without knowing where its home was going to be, when I discovered that the Bloodshot offices were only a couple of blocks away from my apartment I went in and asked if they’d consider giving the songs a home. They were cool enough to hear me out and oblige. I couldn’t be more happy about the work we’re going to do together and sharing it with the world.” Though described in a tweet as "a solo album," Laura Jane Grace & The Devouring Mothers
