In addition to touring the US with Pennywise and A Wilhelm Scream this coming January, Anti-Flag will be playing a few shows in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their 4th full-length album The Terror State. Here’s what the band had to say:
“Mission Accomplished? For the political and corporate elite who benefit from endless was, maybe. But with another round of bombing in Iraq in 2014 it’s hard not to experience a troubled feeling of déjà vu to the days leading up to the Invasion of Iraq in 2003. The songs of The Terror State were written in the midst of the anti-war movement of that era and continue to remind us that, whether it is Bush or Obama, U.S. wars of aggression and imperialism result in the loss of innocent life and catastrophe at home and abroad. It is clear that the fight to end wars for corporate and political gain is not over. The handful of shows around our Pennywise dates will serve as a creative outlet to direct that frustration and anger and will be a collective celebration of those unwilling to relent to the criminal and morally bankrupt corporate and political elite of our time.”
Check out the currently announced dates and locations below, and stay tuned for more to come. In case you haven’t picked up on it yet, they’ll be playing The Terror State in its entirety.
