Anti-Flag have released a new song, “Racists,” in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. It’s the first we have heard from these punk rock legends since 2015’s American Spring and we don’t know if this could mean a new album is on its way.
The band released the following statement:
“We stand in solidarity with those fighting racism and fascism in the streets of Charlottesville and beyond. We believe it is time for the removal of all monuments to the confederacy and the racism for which they stand. We must put these symbols of white supremacy into places where the proper context can be provided for what they actually are; outdated, backwards, and antithetical to what we believe the values of humanity should be. It is past time to have real conversations on systemic racism and America’s history of it. There are museums memorializing the Holocaust all across Europe, while America continues to try to hide from its racist and murderous past and present.”
