Punk veterans, Anti-Flag have announced that they will release their tenth-studio album, ‘American Spring‘, this May.
The album – whose title is a spin-off of the Arab Spring – will drop through Spinefarm Records in May, and more details about the new politically charged full-length are expected to drop soon.
The four-piece released this statement online to unveil their new album.
“We are excited to announce that our tenth full-length record will be released on Spinefarm Records this spring,” the band stated. “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.“
