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

A-F RECORDS WELCOMES: SPANISH LOVE SONGS! Posted 12 Oct 2017

SPANISH LOVE SONGS is a 5-piece punk band from Los Angeles, CA. Their sound combines the energy of drunken bar shows and the intimacy of passionate, lived-in lyrics. They are currently prepping for the release of their second album on A-F Records (US) & Uncle M (UK/EU). The band has spent the past two years expanding their sound both musically and lyrically. More anthemic than ever, the band confidently tears through these songs in which Dylan Slocum turns his attention inward, trying to find positivity and self-acceptance in a world that doesn’t always feel like home.

We are also excited to announce that A-F Records has partnered with Uncle M Music to release Buffalo Buffalo, a new EP from SPANISH LOVE SONGS. Buffalo Buffalo is OUT NOW everywhere digital music is available. Buffalo Buffalo serves as a teaser for the bands upcoming full length LP, Schmaltz, due out Spring 2018 on A-F Records & Uncle M Music.

Dylan Slocum, SPANISH LOVE SONGS' singer, had this to say for the Buffalo Buffalo EP:

"The songs on Buffalo Buffalo give a quick glimpse of where we've been for the past few years -- falling in love while it feels like the world's imploding, getting too old to be young dudes in a band, and trying real hard to stay positive. They're also a glimpse of what's to come, and we hope people love them as much as we do." - Dylan

Week 2 of our ongoing FEST updates is here, and this week we're introducing you to THE PENSKE FILE & SWISS ARMY!

THE PENSKE FILE is bringing a sense of nostalgia to FEST with songs that make you feel like you're locked inside your high school bedroom with walls covered in pages from punk magazines, and a journal full of scribbled lyrics - some your own, some by your other favorite bands! Regardless, by the time TPF hits the stage at FEST, you'll be ready to wrap your arms around your friends and sing as loud as you can to the rooftops until your lungs bleed!

Shows (Subject To Change):

New to the scene, SWISS ARMY is coming in hot this year with shows at PRE-FEST AND FEST! Brandon Lehman's shreddy Bayside-esque guitar licks are going to make you either want to pick up a guitar, or hate yourself for not sticking with lessons when you were young! I'm not projecting, you are!

Shows (Subject To Change):
WEDNESDAY (10/25/17) at The Dirty Shame - 10:10pm -- PRE-FEST
SATURDAY (10/28/17) at Loosey's - 7:10pm -- FEST 16
