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.”
