They’re one of the most “anarcho-punk” bands around who lyrically spread the message of political issues like injustice, racism, and hatred. Anti-Flag centers their music around this movement for likeminded people in hopes of a better world, and now the bandmates have released a short documentary called Power To The Peaceful which was produced by Hawkins & Cross. We see an intimate clip of the bandmates roll through their tour as they talk about recurring issues in today’s society, their growth over the decades, and how the music industry has evolved because of technology.

“This piece documents our collective search for empathy in the waking days of Trump’s presidency. Traveling Europe during the ever-present rise of fascism, scapegoating of immigrants and refugees, and our scenes wanting to assert our voice in opposition to antiquated ideology. There was a fervor in the streets, the songs, the shows, a search for a place to focus our anger, frustration, fear.”

Anti-Flag will begin their European 2019 Tour starting on 4/25, which includes festival stops at Punk In Drublic, ANTIfest, and Slam Dunk.
