“Political punk rock veterans and socially conscious rockers.” – The FADER

“Give ANTI-FLAG their due: They’re pretty relentless. For more than 20 years, the spirited
Pittsburgh punks have worked tirelessly to make their music count for something more than
cheap thrills and mindless rebellion.” – Consequence of Sound

“They [ANTI-FLAG] have stayed quixotically devoted to the idea that punk music can affect real
political change; mountains of evidence to the contrary have never seemed to dull their
enthusiasm, and bless them for that.” – PopMatters

“We dig these angry, passionate American punks.” – NME

“Riotous Pittsburgh stalwarts” – SPIN

“Top-notch punk” – Alt Press

“Musically, everything flows together excellently, the group not sacrificing their super-catchy
punk for their message. The band’s flag is firmly planted in the ground, and they’re still taking
on political injustices whenever they see fit.” – Loudwire

Since unleashing their seminal 1996 debut, Die for the Government, ANTI-FLAG has empowered
and emboldened their listeners for two generations with a timeless punk spirit. With today’s
chaotic political landscape stemming from the controversial 2016 presidential election, the
Pittsburgh, PA quartet (Justin Sane [vocals], Chris#2 [bass, vocals], Chris Head [guitar, vocals],
and Pat Thetic [drums]) felt the time was right for ANTI-FLAG to release their most definitive
offering – American Fall (out November 3rd, 2017).
Co-produced by Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden, American Fall fuels politically driven and
powerful self-awareness lyrics, while the 11-song collection is structurally fused together in a
new sonic direction of punk-rock singalongs and big hooks. Watch ANTI-FLAG’s new “Racists”
lyric video via VEVO here.
“This song is a call to arms. We must challenge racism and hatred everywhere we see it: at school, at work, at the
dinner table with our families…absolutely everywhere. If you still stand by the Trump regime after Charlottesville,
you are complicit. The line has been drawn. On one side stand those who fight for humanity, optimism, and
empathy. On the other side are those who precipitate bigotry, cynicism, and apathy. Now is the time to get off of
the fence and choose which side of history you want to be on.” – ANTI-FLAG
ANTI-FLAG will bring their memorable live set on the road this Fall with select tour and festival
dates in the US and UK announced, including Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA on
October 21st with Nine Inch Nails and Perfect Circle. Plus, the band will perform at this year’s
KNOTFEST in Toluca, Mexico on October 28th. See all dates listed below.
