Anti-Flag, the band that has never, and never will shy away from issuing inflammatory, political statements encased in a fast, furious, and unforgettable musical package, will release American Spring, its Spinefarm debut and its 10th album overall, this May. The band last released an album in 2012, in the form of The General Strike.

American Spring, produced by Awolnation’s Kenny Carkeet, Jim Kaufman (Funeral for a Friend, Skindred, Helmet), and Anti-Flag, features a cameo from fellow punk legend Tim Armstrong of Rancid, who appears on the song “Brandenburg Gate,” while Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello is featured on “Without End.”

While Anti-Flag spent 2014 hitting stages at major international festivals such as Coachella (U.S.), Sonisphere (UK), Pukkelpop (Belgium), and Glastonbury (UK), 2015 will find the band as in your face as ever… as if anything less was possible.

Full release details, such as the track listing and exact release date are forthcoming, but the band had issued this statement — or perhaps it’s more of a warning to the asleep-at-the-wheel masses — regarding the upcoming record:

We are excited to announce that our tenth full-length record will be released on Spinefarm Records this spring. There is no shortage of fodder for a new record of commentary on the social and political climate in 2015: Endless wars, the new Jim Crow and American injustice, corprotocracy, environmental coup d’état, the surveillance state, loss, grief, and anxiety. We hope that these songs can grant us solace in a seemingly hopeless era.

The band continued:

It has been frustrating to see much punk rock music — and music in general — quiet in the face of so many atrocities that are taking place around the world. This record is not quiet. If you are disillusioned with the status quo, these songs are for you. The American Spring is now.

Fans don’t have to wait for spring for a taste of Anti-Flag, though! The band’s January 19th show at The Visulite Theatre in Charlotte, N.C., will feature the band performing the classic album The Terror State in its entirety and will be live-streamed as part of the Yahoo concert series, where fans can stream a show a day for free 365 days a year, all from the comfort of their couch. Tune into Anti-Flag as they slay the Visulite stage here.
