Ache with Me

Album: White Crosses (2010)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This is a track from Florida punk rock band Against Me!'s fifth studio album, White Crosses. The album was produced by Bruce Vig, the man who tweaked the knobs for Nirvana's million selling Nevermind. Lead singer Tom Gabel told us about working with Vig, "Butch is really methodical, in an OCD kind of way, which I can 100% appreciate and back. It's all about attention to detail. I feel like the experiences I've had working with him are the closest I'll ever come to going to college. I couldn't put a price on what I've learned. And I don't think I could ever repay how cool he's been to us. He's a genuine person, that's what makes him so great to work with. And he has great taste in wine."
  • Frontman Tom Gabel was initially uncertain about this romantic tune, but Vig convinced the bandleader to include it on the record. Gabel told Rolling Stone it has become one of his favorite songs on the album. "It's about that feeling of being really unsatisfied and feeling like you're searching for something, but you don't necessarily know what it is," he said.
