The new Anti-Flag album dropped today. It’s the most stoked I’ve been on a new punk album in years. I saw them live a couple weeks back. The new one is a call to action against the neo-liberal order of the previous 8 years and this alt-right status quo the rose of Trump has given us. Stand out track on this is When The Wall Falls. Anti-Flag wrote a kick ass ska track. This is the album we need now. From us old dogs who may feel a bit jaded to the scared kid that may be gay, trans or simply not about the shit happening in these times. This is a battle cry to hold the line and remain human. As always we’ve got this. I’ll see ya when the wall falls.

Writer’s note: stay tuned for a full Punx In Solidarity style Anti Flag article late fall/ early winter.
So on Tuesday 08NOV2016 this country elected Donald Trump as president. A man who is a caricature of every negative statement about America, white males and the Republican party. Not that Hilary was a good option. It was Lizard Queen versus the Great White Nope. The options were pure shit and people couldn’t stomach the idea of another Clintonoid after millennials went in droves to third parties. There is a positive about these results. The underground has been massively complacent over the past 8 years. This should shake everyone awake much like G.W. and the last Clintonoid did. I am looking forward to punk rock being amazing and prolific again. We need to have our hearts and minds open as we move forward through the cultural wasteland. Latinos and Muslims are validly scared of the growing white nationalist movement and anti-racist whites that proudly display our stance are scared of being caught in the cross fire from both sides. It’s time for the underground to March and really stoke the flames that provide change. Punx In Solidarity! Nazi Punks Fuck Off!
