From the venue:Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s Anti-Flag have made it abundantly clear for nearly thirty years that their message and presence will always feel relevant at any given time. Never afraid to offer raw and unfiltered critiques on the failings of the modern political landscape, or position themselves across multiple genres, Anti-Flag are committed to constant evolution. While their early material was rooted in fast, anthemic, and visceral punk rock with classic albums such as Die for the Government and For Blood and Empire, Anti-Flag has brought the rock back into punk rock with later records including American Fall and 20/20 Vision. Now 13 records in with Lies They Tell Our Children produced by Jon Lundin (Good Charlotte, Senses Fail, Sleeping With Sirens) the band offers it’s boldest collection of songs to date in the form of a compelling concept album. Working with Lundin was the perfect union, as Chris #2 declares, “I think you can hear that in the songs, there is an urgency to it and that’s how we recorded them. We wanted to stay on task and knew what we wanted both sonically and politically. I don’t think we’ve worked this meticulously on songs since 2006 with For Blood And Empire.” With the release of Lies They Tell Our Children, and ANTIfest 2022, the Pittsburgh punks in Anti-Flag are set to continue their artistic evolution and mission for revolution.
