ANTIFEST WEEK IS HERE! Posted 21 Nov 2017

The time has come and ANTIFEST is upon us! In just a a few short days, A-F bands past and present will congregate in the heart of Pittsburgh to help celebrate our 20 YEARS as a record label/community!

Attendees can expect two full days of music as well as a few more treats and surprises at the shows including special guests and a secret headliner on Night 2! ANTIFEST also serves as a charitable event with proceeds going to local Pittsburgh charities, The Persad Center and P.A.A.R. (Pittsburgh Action Against Rape) The ability to give back to our community has, and will always be a strong part of our mission, and we are honored to work with such powerful organizations.

Lastly, we can't thank everyone enough that has supported us over the last 20 years. Without you, none of this would be possible, and your actions and kind words continue to prove time and again how IMPORTANT music and community still is! We can't wait to say thanks to each and every one of you this weekend at ANTIFEST!

NEW ANTI-FLAG VIDEO - "LIAR" Posted 06 Nov 2017

A week into the launch of 'AMERICAN FALL' and ANTI-FLAG have dropped another music video for the song "LIAR". Order your copy of AMERICAN FALL HERE. Check out the video below:

Concerning "LIAR":

"So why do they LIE, LIE, LIE? Money! Money and profits. It's as simple as that. It is a necessary lie for their corporate profits. They are treating the planet like it's a stock that they can short, and then make a killing on. And they know that one day it's all going to come violently crashing to pieces."
- Jeremy Scahill of The Intercept "Trump Declares War on the Planet" Intercepted Podcast with Jeremy Scahill (March 29, 2017)

ANTI-FLAG DEBUT "WHEN THE WALL FALLS" VIDEO Posted 19 Oct 2017

ANTI-FLAG's new album 'AMERICAN FALL' is OUT NOW! This week, they're debuting another video for "WHEN THE WALL FALLS"!

Concerning "When The Wall Falls":

"Inspired by work of Phil Ochs, When The Wall Falls is a song of solidarity. Solidarity with those the neoliberal's and right wing have set their sights on. Immigrants and refugees, women, POC, our brothers and sisters in the LGBTQ communities, and all marginalized by systemic inequality. This fight is not a surprise or new, however our ability to have empathy for others and share that empathy with the world is more powerful than ever. Our intersectionality is real, if they come for you in the night, they will come for me in the morning." -Anti-Flag
