ANTI-FLAG'S 'MOBILIZE' TURNS 16! Posted 19 Feb 2018

02.19.2002: 'Mobilize' by ANTI-FLAG is released to the world. 16 years later, here we are still celebrating! This week, as part of our celebration, we are offering 'Mobilize' up on "Classic Black" or "A-F Exclusive Red" vinyl for only $5.00!


From Chris "#2" Barker on 'Mobilize':

"This was a crazy record to make. Being in the studio on September 11th, having everyone from friends, family, to enemies telling us we needed to change our bands name & support the president. Our one goal was to remain anti-war, that more violence was not a solution to violence."

SPANISH LOVE SONGS ANNOUNCE NEW LP 'SCHMALTZ'; TOUR DATES Posted 01 Feb 2018

The time has finally arrived and we get to tell you all about SPANISH LOVE SONGS new full-length LP, 'Schmaltz'!

On the new record, Spanish Love Songs' songwriter Dylan Slocum delves into themes of guilt, depression, and stagnation while he tries to come to terms with his past mistakes and feeling like he hasn't yet grown past them. A quote from Slocum on writing 'Schmaltz' can be found below:

"This album is really all about guilt, and everything that’s wrapped up in it. Guilt over being self-involved. Over being depressed and what that does to the people I love. Of not being there for others or treating them right. Of not treating myself right. Of not doing enough for people before I lost them. Of getting old and still chasing the same dreams. Of being incapable of changing.

Everything else on the album is filtered through that lens. The album is about living with the guilt, and ultimately accepting it, because sometimes it feels debilitating, especially in this day and age."

Coming in hot with the December celebrations, we're also offering you a chance to win a HYPER rare ANTI-FLAG vinyl!

Back in January, we released a Live Anti-Flag record! Later, we partnered with friends at Wax Mage Records to release a hyper limited variant of the album with parts of burnt flag pressed right into the vinyl!

Only 10 of these records were made, and the rest have been auctioned off throughout the year with 100% of proceeds going towards charities selected by ourselves as well as Wax Mage.

Keeping with that mission, we have set aside more proceeds going to the Southern Poverty Law Center and are now giving everyone a chance at one of these VERY rare items!

So again, from 11/27 through 12/31, ANY and ALL orders placed in the online store are automatically entered to win! No extra steps need to be taken by you other than placing your orders!

ONE winner will be selected in January 2018. Best of luck to all of you, and thanks again for all of your support this year!
