ANTI-FLAG Announce UK/ EURO Tour W/ SILVERSTEIN & CANCER BATS + Release Video For ‘TROUBLE FINDS ME’



Pittsburgh political punk band Anti-Flag have just announced a UK/Euro tour this fall with Silverstein, Cancer Bats, and Worriers. Tickets are on sale now.

"Anti-Flag have always seen punk rock as a vehicle for change; community leads to recognizing commonality, which leads to a recognition of our collective power, which leads to us knowing we have the power to create the future we want to see.

This tour, this line-up, eclectic in sonics but all bands believe in sharing empathy over apathy, optimism over cynicism. The goal is to bring people from all walks of life through the door. Introducing them to new people, new friendships, new ideas.

Silverstein: a band we have done countless Warped Tours with... have been comrades in arms for years (hell, Chris #2 and Paul Marc play ice hockey together). They’re a powerful band, we’ve shared stages all over the world, but this will be our first club tour together.

Cancer Bats: some of our oldest friends... we’ve toured together in Canada, the US, played shows in the UK, but finally get to trek across Europe together. Their newest album is a perfect representation of their ability to connect with people in the hardcore, metal and punk rock world. They are a band made up from kids forged in those scenes.

Worriers: some of our newest friends! This band being a part of the tour is an incredible honour. The members of Worriers are some of the most committed people in punk rock, their work and time should be applauded. Survival Pop is one of our favourite records in the last few years and we cannot wait to hear these songs every night.

As with any Anti-Flag tour, records, bands, and t-shirts are not the predications of our work. Amnesty International, Sea Shepherd, Kein Bock Auf Nazis, (and hopefully many other local organizations) will be involved. Disseminating ideas on how to fight fascism, fight for human rights and fight for the life of our planet at every show. At a time when we see the right and fascism as a whole on the rise, racism being emboldened, and hatred commonplace in public discourse... these shows will hopefully provide solace, a place for us all to come together and recognize our power, recharge our strength and continue to fight bigotry with every breath we take.

'These are the days that test your heart and soul. Strap yourself in for the American Fall.'" – Anti-Flag


In conjunction with their tour announcement, Anti-Flag have released a music video for "Trouble Follows Me." The video was directed Alexey Makhov and filmed in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, during the band's current European summer tour. The song comes from their 2017 album American Fall, available now via Spinefarm Records.

Anti-Flag have been staples in the punk rock scene since they formed in 1993. The band is well known for its left-wing political views, focusing on anti-war activism, imperialism, class struggle, human rights, and various socio-political sentiments. Their most recent album American Fall was released in 2017.

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
