Punk rockers Anti-Flag have announced a new European/UK tour for early next year.
Dates kick off January 8th in Lisboa and conclude February 7th in Glasgow. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 4th at 10 AM local time. Check out all the dates below.
“We need these shows. We need this tour,” the band says in a statement. “We need to set the pace for the work that lies ahead in 2020. Our individual strength, optimism and hope comes directly from the interactions and exchanges we have at shows like these. It is a space where individual energy transforms to collective energy and power is born.”
They continue “We cannot wait to unveil our new record. New songs are our bridge to reach out, reconnect, energize and organize. An opportunity to put names to faces, city to city, town to town. We are living in a time where minorities are being increasingly marginalized and cast out of society, where their mere existence has become an illegality. Those victimized by the current administration need much more than allies, they need accomplices. We can no longer be shocked or distracted by defeat. Now is the time to remind each other that we are not alone and together we can beat back injustice.
We hope that this collection of songs, the congregation of folks around the shows, will all serve as tools of solidarity in the face of oppression and empire – solidarity with the poor, the marginalized and the scapegoated who are all catching hell.”
Anti-Flag are currently finishing up their new studio album. They’re also wrapping up their North American tour. Find their remaining dates here.
