Anti-Flag Launch Pre-Order for ‘Sky Is Falling’ Picture Disc
The picture disc is die-cut in the shape of "a drone strike," according to the band's Facebook page, and features an image of a plane emerging from a fiery explosion. The record, of which only 500 copies are being produced, will ship "on or before the release date of 04/28/15," according to the pre-order page. The record will also feature B-side "Close My Eyes," which has been newly remastered and was previously released in 2014 on Vol. VI of the band's 20 Years of Hell series of EPs.
American Spring, Anti-Flag's first album since 2012's The General Strike and their first release on Spinefarm Records, will be the group's 10th studio album and features collaborations with Rancid's Tim Armstrong and Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello.
“It has been frustrating to see much punk rock music – and music in general – quiet in the face of so many atrocities that are taking place around the world,” the band recently said in a statement. “This record is not quiet. If you are disillusioned with the status quo, these songs are for you. The American Spring is now.”
