Local support acts have been announced for the Anti-Flag, Strike Anywhere & The Flatliners Australian Tour this May.
Without compromising their trademark style, The General Strike finds Anti-Flag bounding effortlessly from the Hot Water Music-esque 1915 to the hardcore of Bullshit Opportunist to the frenetic, reggae-influenced energy of This Is The New Sound, an anti-wage slavery anthem which highlights Justin and the gang’s tight, reckless virtuosity and effortless hooks. There’s plenty to be pissed about in the dawn of 2012, and Anti-Flag have taken aim on The General Strike.
Now, and excitedly; in conjunction with BSB Presents and Collateral Manage Co… Anti-Flag take aim on Australia!! AND incase their arsenal wasn’t big enough – they’re bringing some extra weaponry, in the form of Virginia’s Strike Anywhere and Toronto’s The Flatliners. With neither bands strangers to our shores this will be the best international line up you’ll see all year without having to drape yourself in an Australian flag and get sunburnt…
