Pittsburgh punks Anti-Flag have signed a deal with Spinefarm Records it has been announced.
In a release revealing the news the band confirm that their next album will be titled American Spring and will be out in May.
Say Anti-Flag of the new material: “…There is no shortage of fodder for a new record of commentary on the social and political climate in 2015: endless wars, the new Jim Crow and American injustice, corprotocracy, environmental coup d’état, the surveillance state, loss, grief and anxiety. We hope that these songs can grant us solace in a seemingly hopeless era.
“It has been frustrating to see much punk rock music — and music in general — quiet in the face of so many atrocities that are taking place around the world. This record is not quiet. If you are disillusioned with the status quo, these songs are for you. The American Spring is now.”
Says Spinefarm Records General Manager Worldwide, Jonas Nachsin: “Anti-Flag are a band with a message certainly, and in addition, the music is just as compelling. This album, our first with the band, is just incredible. While we are happy to help deliver it to their legion of devoted fans, our plan is also to extend it out to those who haven’t yet been exposed to this treasured act. We are proud that they chose us to bring on American Spring.”
Full album details are to be released in due course. Meanwhile, Anti-Flag have confirmed the following European tour dates:
