Artisan News spoke with Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel, who talked about why he’s backing Barack Obama in Tuesday’s U.S. election. “Personally I know I’m going to vote for Barack Obama and I really think that him being elected would be an overwhelming positive thing for The U.S. and the world in general or at least their view point of us,” Gabel said. “I think that’s it’s really an interesting election.

I don’t understand but hopefully the tides will turn.” Read more and watch Gabel’s remarks at YouTube.
