Anti-Flag are all set to release their ninth studio album ‘American Spring’ next week but to help carry you through this final stretch the Pennsylvanian punk band have shared a new track featuring Rancid’s Tim Armstrong.
‘Brandenburg Gate’ is a charged anthem attacking ““A culture indoctrinated with violence will see and fear violence even when there is none.” The band go on to say, “Activism is not a competition. Art doesn’t have to be safe. Revolution doesn’t have to be bloody. Change comes from people, not politicians.”
It’s a message underlined by the Emma Goldman quote that opens the accompanying video. “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution.”
Anti-Flag will be returning to London on June 2nd for two intimate shows at The Old Blue Last before a more spacious affair at London’s Brooklyn Bowl on August 8th.
