Anti-Flag have released a lyric video for new single, “Racists”, which is taken from the band’s upcoming new album American Fall, out November 3 on Spinefarm Records.
“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
Watch/listen to “Racists” below:
Since unleashing their seminal 1996 debut, Die for the Government, Anti-Flag have 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.
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.
