Anti-Flag Talk With PunkNews

Anti-Flag recently sat down with PunkNews to talk about their upcoming acoustic album:

I think that led into this acoustic piece perfectly because we find ourselves chasing our tail with Donald Trump where the story changes every fucking minute. It’s hard not to be knee jerk reactionary to them because they are all vital and important things that are happening. There are still kids in fucking cages. The narrative has changed. How do we let our art not become just as much static and noise as everything else? This was a way for us to revisit some ideas and themes over the last two records that got lost in the shuffle because we have to talk about so many different things and so many different moments.

Anti-Flag “The Debate Is Over (If You Want It)” (Acoustic)

Anti-Flag have shared the acoustic version of “The Debate Is Over (If You Want It).” More on the acoustic album can be read over at Billboard:

The 10-song set features the quartet’s unplugged takes on seven tracks from its last two albums — 2015’s American Spring and 2017’s American Fall — as well as plugged-in covers of John Lennon’s “Gimme Some Truth,” Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” and Cheap Trick’s “Surrender,” which takes on a more expansive meaning in the context of the charged topical fare that precedes it.

Anti-Flag on “Cautionary Tales” Podcast

Anti-Flag are the latest guest on the Cautionary Tales podcast. It’s a good listen and goes into some really great tales of signing with different labels over the years:

“I think we were one of the first bands to ever tell Mike no,” he remembers, recalling Fat Mike’s early overtures to Anti-Flag. “He said, ‘I want to put you on [Fat subsidiary] Honest Don’s,’ and we said, ‘No, we want to be on Fat.’ He said, ‘You’re not ready for Fat.’ And we said, ‘Go fuck yourself.’”
