Anti-Flag has announced plans to release a new full-length album titled, American Fall, set to drop November 3 via Spinefarm Records. The announcement comes just days after the band released ‘Racists’ in wake of the country’s current political climate.
The band continues to use their platform to call for change while hoping to raise awareness to the distraction of the ‘American Attraction.’ The video spans across multiple cultural aspects of America. From personal vices to the mindless consumption of the mass media, the video successfully captures the tensions that not only can be felt at times, but as we’ve seen in the past year.
“The American Fall is our rejection of this harmful distraction. At this crucial moment in history, we must focus on pushing past the status quo to create a better and more just world. We reject the proliferation of exploitation, racism, bigotry and socioeconomic injustice that dominate the policies of Donald Trump, just as we renounce the neoliberal status quo that came before him.”
We are living in a time where pop-culture is clashing with politics. Things are going to get messy in order to make any progress. Believe the hype for American Fall, for the best music is yet to come from Anti-Flag.
