ANTI-FLAG SIGN TO SPINEFARM RECORDS







BAND TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM AMERICAN SPRING IN MAY

JANUARY 19th SHOW IN CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, TO STREAM ON YAHOO

Spinefarm is thrilled to announce the signing of Pittsburgh's incendiary punk rock iconoclasts Anti-Flag, who have served as a constant voice of and agent for change by advocating peace and human rights through their tireless work with and support of organizations such as Amnesty International, ACLU, Greenpeace, Planned Parenthood, Rainforest Action Network, PETA and more.

Spinefarm welcomes the band to its worldwide roster.

Anti-Flag, who never have and never will shy away from issuing inflammatory, political statements encased in a fast, furious and unforgettable musical package, will releaseAmerican Spring, their Spinefarm debut and tenth album overall, this May. The band last released an album in 2012 in the form ofThe General Strike.

American Spring, produced by AWOLNATION's Kenny Carkeet, Jim Kaufman (Funeral For A Friend, Skindred, Helmet) and Anti-Flag, features a cameo from fellow punk legend Tim Armstrong of Rancid, who appears on the song ‘Brandenburg Gate’, while Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello is featured on ‘Without End’.

While Anti-Flag spent 2014 hitting stages at major international festivals such as Coachella (US), Sonisphere (UK), Pukkelpop (Belgium) and Glastonbury (UK), 2015 will find the band as in-your-face as ever… as if anything less was possible.

Given the state of the world in 2015, a new Anti-Flag album couldn’t be better timed; this is a record full of fist-in-the-air, sing-along anthems, representing the band's unique world view and serving as informed calls to action.

Full details, such as track-listing and exact release date, will be available in due course; in the meantime, the band has issued the following statement—or perhaps it's more of a warning to the asleep-at-the-wheel masses…

"We are excited to announce that our tenth full-length record will be released on Spinefarm Records this spring. 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."

Spinefarm Records General Manager Worldwide Jonas Nachsin says:"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."

Fans don't have to wait for spring for a taste of Anti-Flag, though!

The band's January 19th show at The Visulite Theatre in Charlotte, N.C., will see them performing the classic albumThe Terror State in its entirety, and will be live-streamed as part of a Yahoo concert series where fans can stream a show a day for free 365 days a year, all from the comfort of their couch. Tune into Anti-Flag as they slay the Visulite stage here.https://screen.yahoo.com/live/event/anti-flag

Don't go quiet… Anti-Flag andAmerican Spring won't allow you to lapse into complacency or let you give up. If ever there were a soundtrack for an uprising, it's American Spring.

Voi and Luger told us: “This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our 'older age' we have done something serious. Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
