Punk legends Anti-Flag have kicked off 2015 with two very big announcements. The first is the fact that they have joined a host of excellent bands on Spinefarm Records and the second is the fact that this year we will have the band's tenth studio release!

American Spring will be released in May, and as ever the band have promised that they will not be pulling any punches. Commenting on both Spinefarm Records and the new album, the band had the following to say: "We are excited to announce that our tenth full-length record will be released on Spinefarm Records this spring. There is no shortage of fodder for a new record of commentary on the social and political climate in 2015: endless wars, the new Jim Crow and American injustice, corprotocracy, environmental coup d'etat, the surveillance state, loss, grief and anxiety. We hope that these songs can grant us solace in a seemingly hopeless era.

"It has been frustrating to see much punk rock music -and music in general- quiet in the face of so many atrocities that are taking place around the world. This record is not quiet. If you are disillusioned with the status quo, these songs are for you. The American Spring is now."

There are already a few Anti-Flag shows booked in Europe over Summer so it is pretty safe to assume that they'll be popping up at a UK Festival or two.
