Still Fast And Furious – ANTI-FLAG Launch 13th LP ‘LIES THEY TELL OUR CHILDREN’

7 January 2023

Veteran Pittsburgh punks ANTI-FLAG emerged on the scene back in 1988.
They fabricated 12 LPs so far, and today they launched number 13, named
LIES THEY TELL OUR CHILDREN
.

Anti-Flag: “There’s no other way to put it; Lies They Tell Our Children is the best fucking
version of ANTI-FLAG we have ever been. We haven’t been afforded the privilege and ability to spend every day together writing and focusing on every detail of an album in well over a decade and I think you can feel that collaboration and collectiveness in these songs more than any other record of ours. That collaboration was only extrapolated on with the inclusion of the eight guests who are featured on the album, spanning genres, years of friendship, and a vast array of perspectives.

The album itself is the first conceptual album the band has ever done, spawned out of a compulsive need to not just comment on the dystopian corporate wasteland we all face but
to trace it back to the origin of this fate; the political policies, laws, cultural shifts, and lineage of injustice that have led us to the world we live in today.

Kerrang says: “Lies They Tell Our Children is a truly great and timely album from a band who continue to fearlessly, articulately and aggressively address the issues of the here and now. Put simply, Anti-Flag have never been more essential, on point or outright pissed off.” Score: 4/5.

TUTV: Anti-Flag still steam fast and furious on their new opus with
a tsunami of 11 uppercuts to ignite manic moshpits for your children
while they scream their heads off.

Key Singles (so far): Laugh. Cry. Smile. Die. / The Fight Of Our Lives

– LAUGH. CRY. SMILE. DIE. –

– THE FIGHT OF OUR LIVES –
