Pennsylvania punks Anti Flag are Bangkok-bound, capping off 2016 with their second Australian tour in two years, where they’ll play their 2006 album For Blood and Empire in full to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
The December 14 concert will take place at The Rock Pub and features support from Indonesian punk rockers “Joey The Gangster.” The show is sandwiched between a four-date tour through Australia before the political, propaganda crushing machines head back to New York’s Irving Plaza on 17th December. No further concerts in Southeast Asia have been announced at this point and seem unlikely based on the tight timeline between the shows.
Along with playing For Blood and Empire in its entirety, Anti-Flag will also be playing an encore consisting of audience requests. “When we get there we want it to be special. This tour is no different, celebrating 10 years of ‘For Blood and Empire’ we will be performing the record and then an encore of all audience requests,” say the band.
“It’s going to be a unique show to say the least. As always the emphasis will be on community, solidarity, and empathy. We look forward to sharing this tremendously important record from our band’s life with a part of the world that we have found solace and family in for years.”
The band have just dropped a live video for their single “To Hell With Boredom,” which comes off of the band’s ninth studio album American Spring, released through Spinefarm Records. The new clip was filmed while the guys were on tour in the Czech Republic this past summer.
Anti-Flag are of course also known for their outspoken political activism, so you can bet your blue mohawks they’re going to have a lot to say about the imminent US presidential election, and may even weigh in on some of the current sociopolitical issues facing Thailand while they’re in town.
