Anti-Flag Premiere “Victory Or Death (We Gave ‘Em Hell)” Music Video

Anti-Flag have premiered a new video for their new song “Victory Or Death (We Gave ‘Em Hell).” This track features Campino (Die Toten Hosen) and it will appear on the band’s new album “Lies They Tell Our Children,” which is set to be released on January 6.

The group commented:

“From the first play through of the chord progression of ‘Victory or Death,’ we knew where it needed to go lyrically. It sounded like hope. It sounded like empathy. Carrying the stories of freedom fighters who were forgotten, perhaps never known, or far too often had their legacies softened, made out to be less radical and safe for American History books.

This song stands as homage and a testament to the people who’ve laid the groundwork for progress. Using all within their sometimes limited power to alleviate suffering, challenge the status quo of violence, and demand a reckoning with societal norms that further marginalize and exploit people.

In spirit with the concept behind ‘Lies They Tell Our Children,’ we were leaning hard on and embracing our inspirations as a band. Touring with Die Toten Hosen in 2008 was an eye-opening experience. One that has stuck with us through the years. So it only made sense for us to reach out to Campino to see if he had interest in being a part of this track. Not only was he willing to sing the verse we wrote for him, he also penned his own in German. Our hearts and minds were blown away by it.

This song is one of the most important moments on the album. We’re grateful to share this with the world. To pay our respects to the activists and agitators who lived their lives to leave the world better than they found it.

March on to our very last breath, it’s victory or death…”

Anti-Flag Share Music Video For New Song “Nvrevr” Featuring Bad Cop/Bad Cop’s Stacey Dee

Anti-Flag have premiered a new video for their new song “Nvrevr.” This track features Bad Cop/Bad Cop’s Stacey Dee and it will appear on the band’s new album “Lies They Tell Our Children,” which is set to be released on January 6.

The group commented:

“Living in a society that values corporate profits above all else is a grind. Making the choice to go against the grain in such a world is even harder, especially in a culture that has been brainwashed to worship capitalism as a savior and cure-all. Those who strive to create alternatives to capitalism for the common good garner little attention and quite often find their efforts met with open hostility. This song is dedicated to those who recognize that ‘the free market’ is incapable of solving many of the ills that plague our society and do everything in their power to put people and the planet before corporate profits.

Stacey Dee of Bad Cop/Bad Cop is one of those unsung heroes. That fact inspired us to ask her to appear on this song. In addition to being an incredibly talented performer, she dedicates countless hours to the organization she co-founded, The Sidewalk Project, which works to empower houseless communities around the world.”

Anti-Flag Share Music Video For New Song “The Fight Of Our Lives” Featuring Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath And Bad Religion’s Brian Baker

Anti-Flag have premiered a new video for their new song “The Fight Of Our Lives.” The track, which features Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath and Bad Religion’s Brian Baker, is from the band’s new album “Lies They Tell Our Children,” which will be released on January 6.

The group commented:

“To us, this song is a unique demonstration of the power of community. Bringing in Tim and Brian was just to drive the nail home that this shit takes all of us. The predication of punk rock, to leave things better than you found them, to give a fuck about more than just yourself… The planet can’t spare another day before we take massive steps to stop catastrophic, human-made disaster. Nuclear arsenals are on the rise. Millions are displaced around the world. From Ukraine to Yemen, there are currently 27 major conflicts on the planet. Corporate and terrorist networks are reaping massive profits from the bloodshed and division being sewn.

A growing international neo-fascist crusade is spreading across the world hell bent on furthering a movement rooted in racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and every other kind of bigotry imaginable. Extremist religious movements grow more emboldened to seize power over the world’s governments enacting laws such as the Supreme Court has in the United States, where the human right to an abortion is being banned.

We are truly in the fight of our lives. It’s a time to stand up and be counted. We are at a historic tipping point in human civilization where we can swing towards peace, empathy, optimism, justice, and human rights for all, or we can swing towards more of this ominous rising tide which has already brought so much inequality, pain and death.”

Anti-Flag To Release New Album “Lies They Tell Our Children” In January, Premiere “Laugh. Cry. Smile. Die.” Music Video

Anti-Flag will be releasing a new album, titled “Lies They Tell Our Children,” on January 6. A video for the effort’s first single, “Laugh. Cry. Smile. Die.” (feat. Silverstein’s Shane Told), can be found below:

“Lies They Tell Our Children” Track Listing:

01. “Sold Everything”
02. “Modern Meta Medicine” (feat. Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage)
03. “Laugh. Cry. Smile. Die.” (feat. Shane Told of Silverstein)
04. “The Fight Of Our Lives” (feat. Tim McIlrath of Rise Against & Brian Baker of Bad Religion)
05. “Imperialism” (feat. Ashrita Kumar Of Pinkshift)
06. “Victory Or Death (We Gave ‘Em Hell)” (feat. Campino of Die Toten Hosen)
07. “The Hazardous”
08. “Shallow Graves” (feat. Tré Burt)
09. “Work & Struggle”
10. “Nvrevr” (feat. Stacey Dee of Bad Cop/Bad Cop)
11. “Only In My Head”

The group commented:

“Look, this is our 13th album. 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.”

“Like the band itself, of course the album is an anti-war statement both in the literal and figurative sense. This is an important moment in history and demands an urgent response, but we thought it was also important that we retrace our footsteps to the beginning of these issues. In order to better understand how to eradicate climate devastation, imperialism, war based economics, systems predicated upon racism, and the increasing belief that these things do not even exist, you have got to take people to the source. This idea is the crux of ‘The Lies They Tell Our Children‘; put this wretched history in their face and demand their empathy.”

Anti-Flag Premiere “Hate Conquers All” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “20/20 Vision”

Anti-Flag have premiered a new video for their new song “Hate Conquers All” via Kerrang!. This track is from the band’s new album “20/20 Vision,” which will be released on January 17.

Chris #2 commented:

“Love Trumps Hate. On the surface, this well packaged, well meaning sentiment does what it needs to… In the face of so much fear, inequality and despair, it provides hope. Hope that the path that we’re on isn’t an endless one, but one that can be defeated. And honestly I believe in the premise. That if you put love and positivity out into the universe it does combat negativity and it does come back or return, not always to us directly, but to someone. But the policies of Donald Trump and his administration are not just hateful. They’re racist, islamaphobic, homophobic, transphobic, and bigoted. It is a false equivalency. The language exists for a reason. Our focus should not only be on their hatred, but their outward and unabashed fascism. We shouldn’t just try to kill these things with love and kindness. We should be in the streets daily, demanding an end to racial, social, and economic injustice. The video for ‘Hate Conquers All’ is a visual experience of what a continuation of Trump policy and rhetoric holds. Climate devastation, racist/xenophobic immigration law and endless conflicts of interest serving his businesses and their partners. Watch the empire fall. Watch the nation dissolve. With our backs against the wall.”

01. “Hate Conquers All”
