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.’”

Anti-Flag – “Racists”

Anti-Flag have released their new song “Racists.” They’ve also shared the following statement:

We stand in solidarity with those fighting racism and fascism in the streets of Charlottesville and beyond. We believe it is time for the removal of all monuments to the confederacy and the racism for which they stand. We must put these symbols of white supremacy into places where the proper context can be provided for what they actually are; outdated, backwards, and antithetical to what we believe the values of humanity should be. It is past time to have real conversations on systemic racism and America’s history of it. There are museums memorializing the Holocaust all across Europe, while America continues to try to hide from its racist and murderous past and present.
