“Fabled World” Lyric video!

March 31, 2015

Today we are excited to reveal “Fabled World,” the first new track from our forthcoming album AMERICAN SPRING.  Inspired by the failure of the Obama era, “Fabled World” is the first of many aggressive critiques of the global social and political climate that we find ourselves in.
 

Read more about the song and watch the video via our friends at Absolute Punk here: http://www.absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=3722807

 

“We went to Ukraine and Russia in the midst of their conflict and left feeling more resolute than ever regarding the core principal of Anti-Flag; the belief that average citizens of this world have similar hopes and dreams and have much more in common with each other than the politicians of their countries.

We had a Russian shoot this footage and an American place the text. Co-directed by people who our politicians and media paint as the other, the enemy.  Be it Bush, Obama, or Putin, politicians who turn to war over diplomacy are a failure to the people of their nation and the people of the world.

This song was inspired by the failure of the Obama era.  One that produced record profits for the corporate elite of America at the expense of everyone else.  One that peddles the false notion that drones strikes not only keep us safe, but will bring us peace.  This is an era of fables: an unjust legal system, a national surveillance state, attacks on whistler blowers, police who not only only break the law but do so with impunity, inequality at every turn. We live in an era where the American dream is more out of reach for an increasing number of young Americans, often because of the color of their skin, and more than often based on the depth of their family’s pocket book.  It doesn’t have to be this way and we can change it.  Kicking corporations out of our politics would be a good first step.” - ANTI-FLAG
