Jay Weinberg Resurfaces With Against Me!
After cancelling their 2010 national tour last October, Florida’s folky punkers Against Me! went into hibernation until word recently spread about their opening spot on The Dropkick Murphys upcoming 2011 tour. Now we hear that former Hot Water Music drummer George Rebelo – who joined Against Me! In 2009 – will be replaced by none other than Jay Weinberg, Max’s son. This latest chapter in the younger Weinberg’s drumming career follows his tumultuous stint earlier this year with the New York hardcore outfit Madball, whose lead singer, Freddy Cricien, traded accusatory press releases with Weinberg following the split. Hopefully, this new partnership will be much more amicable. Life’s too short, after all.
