ANTI-FLAG REVEAL EVOCATIVE “AMERICAN SPRING” ALBUM ARTWORK AND FULL TRACKLIST

 SPINEFARM RECORDS /CAROLINE AUSTRALIA DEBUT RELEASES IN MAY 2015

(New York, N.Y.): Historically, Pittsburgh-based punk stalwarts Anti-Flag have always had important, socially conscious messages to convey and musical statements they’ve been driven to make. That ethos remains intact with their new album, American Spring, which is their Spinefarm Records  / Caroline Australia debut and is due out on May 29.

The band has shared the front and back album artwork, which will certainly spark conversations among the youth and perhaps inspire change, which is the spirit in which punk rock was initially founded.

There are plenty of ways the viewer can interpret the vivid artwork, as the front cover features a woman wearing a black hajib veil, while the back cover features an American soldier in combat fatigues. Both of their faces are obscured by an exploding pink flower.

“The songs of American Spring are an aggressive critique of the global social and political climate of 2015,” Anti-Flag explained. “The artwork is no different. The cover art is meant to challenge our collective view of violence and peace.  The entire American Spring package includes essays, personal liner notes, and further information behind the driving forces of each song, detailing ways for us all to take action against injustice in the world. The American Spring is now.”

 

On March 31st, the first track of the album, “Fabled World” will be premiered worldwide.   Full album tracklisting is as follows:
