Lies They Tell Our Children


July 29, 2022

Look, this is our 13th album. There’s no other way to put it; LIES THEY TELL OUR CHILDREN is the best fucking version of Anti-Flag we have ever been. We haven’t been afforded the privilege and ability to spend every day together writing and focusing on every detail of an album in well over a decade and I think you can feel that collaboration and collectiveness in these songs more than any other record of ours. That collaboration was only extrapolated on with the inclusion of the 8 guests who are featured on the album, spanning genres, years of friendship, and a vast array of perspectives.

The album itself is the first conceptual album the band has ever done, spawned out of a compulsive need to not just comment on the dystopian corporate wasteland we all face but to trace it back to the origin of this fate; the political policies, laws, cultural shifts, and lineage of injustice that have lead us to the world we live in today.

Like the band itself, of course the album is an anti-war statement both in the literal and figurative sense. This is an important moment in history and demands an urgent response, but we thought it was also important that we retrace our footsteps to the beginning of these issues.  In order to better understand how to eradicate climate devastation, imperialism, war based economics, systems predicated upon racism, and the increasing belief that these things do not even exist, you have got to take people to the source.

This idea is the crux of LIES THEY TELL OUR CHILDREN; put this wretched history in their face and demand their empathy.

North America Tour 2021!

June 4, 2021

The last time Anti-Flag embarked on a North American tour it lasted two days before Covid 19 brought it to an end. After more than a year of challenges, hardships and misfortune for many the world over we are pleased to announce that we are hitting the road again. In the grand scheme of current events this announcement is small but we also take it as an optimistic sign that life is slowly inching out of the pandemic and that gives us a cause to celebrate. 

These shows will be a celebration of the fact that we have all come through a very hard time and pay respects to those lost over the past year. They will also be a gathering place for all who believe in and support equality, human rights and those who stand against authoritarianism and fascism. In the wake of the past year these issues are front and center which makes our desire to connect with friends allies, and accomplices even greater. There is power in connectivity and knowing that you are not alone. We want everyone who believes that Black Lives Matter, that neo-fascism has no place in this society, that LGBTQ+ people are free to be who they are, that war and war profiteering is morally reprehensible and that capitalism is fucked, to walk away from these shows feeling re-energized for the struggles ahead and to know that they are, indeed, not alone and to keep up the good fight.

“Beyond Barricades: The Story of Anti-Flag” World Premiere Presented by Alternative Press, October 3rd at

September 14, 2020

Documentary Premiere October 3, 2020, Presented by Alternative Press!

The premiere of the FIRST EVER documentary on the band Anti-Flag. 27 years, 12 records, endless shows, hundreds of songs. This film follows the band from their beginning in 1993 all the way to present day, telling their story and focusing on the intersection of activism, music and art.

“It’s hard to sum up the last 27 years of Anti-Flag in an hour and a half. We started our band out of a passion for punk rock with the belief that punk music had the power to change people’s lives and have a positive impact on the world. With this documentary, we hope people will see that while life may not be as straight forward as that idealistic philosophy, it isn’t so far from the truth either. Regardless of what others take from this film, for us the experience of looking back on the history of Anti-Flag – sometimes good, sometimes bad and sometimes unbelievable – leaves us grateful to have had the opportunity to live a very rare and at times extraordinary life as part of this punk rock band.” – Justin Sane

The film premieres Saturday, October 3, 2020, at at 2pm PT / 5pm ET / 10pm BST / 11pm CET. Tickets are available now at

There are two ticket options: a premiere ticket for $10 or a bundle option for $25 that includes a premiere ticket, a signed double-sided poster, and access to a post-film Q&A hosted by Alternative Press featuring Anti-Flag and the film’s director, Jon Nix. The Q&A will follow the film and begin at 3:45pm PT / 6:45pm ET. All ticket holders have the opportunity to log in 30 minutes before the start of the film and chat with the band and get aquatinted with the other members of the community viewing the film.

“Beyond Barricades: The Story of Anti-Flag” is the second feature film produced by TurnStyle Films and Executive Producer Matthew Chojnacki (Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street, 30 years of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story). TurnStyle Films co-produced Powerbomb, distributed by Indican Pictures earlier this year. They are currently in production on Don’t Fall In Love with Yourself, a documentary on Justin Pearson and the San Diego noise punk scene.

20/20 VISION – New Album and Tour!

November 25, 2019

Our new album 20/20 Vision will be released January 17, 2020. You can pre-order it now

Through our past 11 records we have worked to add our voice to the choirs of dissent, to be accomplices in the fight against extremist right-wing ideology and immoral policies that make human lives illegal.

20/20 Vision is an album that explicitly addresses the here and now. A record that aims to draw a line in the sand against the fascistic hate mongering of the Trump administration and all global political leaders that use racist, Islamaphobic, homophobic, transphobic or bigoted agendas to create a culture of fear and disillusionment to maintain their power.

The ’20/20 Vision’ World Tour Begins January 8th!
