Turn up - rock out!

Turn up - rock out!

Rock is dead. A rather bold and cliché-fuelled statement often used vigorously by those who remain convinced that the golden age of rock music has long since collapsed upon itself, leaving everything to be desired while accessible ‘mainstream’ pop continues to devour our minds, souls and ears. That, however, is not an entirely accurate depiction of the current circumstances, if you ask me. Via the constant bombardment of new material by lesser-known bands, world-famous bands and ambitious newcomers altogether, it becomes increasingly ...

Anti-Flag debuts new single: "Fabled World"

Posted by AP on 2/04/15

Anti-Flag have debuted a new single called ”Fabled World” via AbsolutePunk.net below. It appears on the group’s tenth album, which is set to be released through Spinefarm Records on the 26th of May.



The band released the following statement to explain the background for the track:


We went to Ukraine and Russia in the midst of their conflict and left feeling more resolute than ever regarding the core principal of Anti-Flag; the belief that average citizens of this world have similar hopes and dreams and have much more in common with each other than the politicians of their countries.


We had a Russian shoot this footage and an American place the text. Co-directed by people who our politicians and media paint as the other, the enemy. Be it Bush, Obama, or Putin, politicians who turn to war over diplomacy are a failure to the people of their nation and the people of the world.


This song was inspired by the failure of the Obama era. One that produced record profits for the corporate elite of America at the expense of everyone else. One that peddles the false notion that drones strikes not only keep us safe, but will bring us peace. This is an era of fables: an unjust legal system, a national surveillance state, attacks on whistler blowers, police who not only only break the law but do so with impunity, inequality at every turn. We live in an era where the American dream is more out of reach for an increasing number of young Americans, often because of the color of their skin, and more than often based on the depth of their family’s pocket book. It doesn’t have to be this way and we can change it. Kicking corporations out of our politics would be a good first step.

Thy Art Is Murder announces new album

Posted by AP on 2/04/15

Thy Art Is Murder will release a new album titled ”Holy War” through Nuclear Blast on the 26th of June. Commenting on the effort and its title, guitarist Andy Marsh offered:


Finally the cat is out of the bag! Late last year, we entered the studio in secret to create our follow up to Hate, free of expectation and public pressure. What we came out with was a reaction to things going on around the world that crawl under our skin, that make us feel sick to be alive. Musically it is darker, faster and more technical than anything we've done in the past and it hits hard lyrically. We wrote about concerns of ours, real issues, hardships that people are facing around the world today. Of course it wouldn't be a THY ART record if a lot of those affairs weren't rooted in religion somehow, and what better way to sum up the state of all things than by entitling our album - Holy War. This is our war on racism, homophobia, child abuse, animal cruelty and all evil born of religious immunity, indoctrination, and ignorance. It is ultimately a push for secularism and humanism. Without it, we will be left in the hands of mad men.

Danish fans can watch the band live at Lille Vega in Copenhagen on the 04th of May, supporting Emmure. You can find more details in our news of the show here.
