Anti-Flag Releases Two Songs in Wake of Charlottesville Attacks
Anti-Flag has released a new song called Racists in wake of the violence that occurred recently in Charlottesville, VA, as well as a video for the track American Attraction.
Listen to Racists via the lyric video here and check out American Attraction below:
Below is the band’s 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put these symbols of white supremacy into places where the proper context can be provided for what they actually are; outdated, backwards, and antithetical to what we believe the values of humanity should be.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.”
1. American Attraction
2. The Criminals
3. When The Wall Falls
4. Trouble Follows Me
5. Finish What We Started
7. Digital Blackout
8. I Came. I Saw. I Believed.
