We’re thrilled to announce that on July 22nd, we’ll be releasing Anti-Flag’s career-spanning collection, A Document of Dissent: 1993-2013. Comprised of 26 tracks, culled from 9 full-length albums spanning six labels, this is the essential Anti-Flag. The real gem, as a music fan, are their insightful and in-depth liner notes. The band illustrates each song’s history and includes a biographical timeline of the band’s history alongside world events and how some of those events inspired classic Anti-Flag songs. Below, watch a video of the band providing a run-down of just what went into this collection. Then, head here to pre-order your copy today. Don’t miss them on tour, they’ve just announced a bunch of Summer dates.
What can we say, we LOVE vinyl so we couldn’t pass up the chance of releasing The Copyrights new 7". No Knocks comes out this summer and contains three fast and furious pop punk tunes from these Midwestern Salukis. The tunes are so catchy and fun that you’ll wish you didn’t have to hold down a day job so you could follow The Copyrights on their current tour with The Lawrence Arms. You can check those dates, plus their upcoming tour dates with 7 Seconds here! Pre-order the 7" next Monday and look out for a new album on Red Scare later this year!
