The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a legally binding deal between 12 governments, including the U.S., that was negotiated in total secrecy with hundreds of corporate lobbyists helping draft the text. If ratified, it would be the largest backroom deal of its kind in history, and it poses a grave threat to good paying jobs, the environment, internet freedom, food safety, and our basic democratic process.
The biggest challenge we’re facing in the fight to stop the anti-democratic TPP agreement is that too many people still don’t know what it is.
That’s a real problem. And corporate lobbyists are hoping to exploit it to quietly rush the TPP through Congress this Fall.
Fortunately, ROCK AGAINST THE TPP will help sound the alarm: Click here to take action and learn more!
Our friends at digital rights group Fight for the Future, legendary guitarist Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine, Prophets of Rage, and Audioslave), and his new label Firebrand Records have come together to organize Rock Against the TPP––a nationwide roadshow featuring high profile speakers and performers coming together to educate the public about the grave threat that the TPP poses to our most basic rights. The tour is sponsored by Citizens Trade Campaign, Communications Workers of America, CREDO, Demand Progress, Friends of the Earth the International Labor Rights Forum, Public Citizen, Sierra Club, SumOfUs, and the Teamsters.
Through a series of large-scale educational concert events, protests, and teach-ins, educating people who have never heard of the TPP before, we are igniting a mass movement to stop TPP in its tracks.

The Rock Against the TPP tour is kicking off in Denver, CO on Saturday, July 23rd, with an all-star lineup and a diverse group of organizations working together to make an impact.

In October 2015 we recorded six songs in Vienna directly to vinyl and will be holding a raffle for the one-of-a-kind vinyl-copy:
“When you’ve been a band as long as Anti-Flag has its hard to find not only new things to do, but really exciting things to do. To be allowed to have a group of punks invade Supersense in Vienna, which is essentially a museum to vintage recording and musical equipment was an amazing privilege. These songs are one take. Recorded direct to vinyl. There is only 1 copy of that piece of wax, the digital version of these songs are ripped right from that record. 1 take. 1 record. All proceeds going to Amnesty International. It doesn’t get more punk rock than that. Thanks to all involved, buy the tracks, they’re really special versions of these songs and for a really important cause. Peace!”
These 6 songs (5 Anti-Flag classics plus 1 Ramones cover-song) were recorded at Supersense Wien, a one-of-a-kind analog “direct to vinyl” studio, and mixed/mastered by Matthias Lohmöller. They will be released digitally Friday, June 24.
To win the unique (one of a kind) recording on vinyl:
a) buy the record (on iTunes, Bandcamp or AmazonMP3) until July 31st 2016

We are participating in Record Store Day this Saturday, April 16, with the release of Live Acoustic at 11th Street Records on clear vinyl!
Saturday marks the first time the album is available physically. It’s initial release was digital only.
“The songs on American Spring pushed us into territory uncharted. I felt immense struggle for personal self worth and self identity writing these songs. Making the moment of its release something incredibly scary and nerve racking. This show at 11th Street Records, was not only us unveiling the record for the first time, but us playing these songs for people other than ourselves for the first time. The importance of independent record stores like 11th street can not be understated. A forum where ideas can be shared, where outsiders of the status quo can find solace. The dissemination of information outside of pop culture. To partner with this shop in Las Vegas and have attendees of punk rock bowling from all over the globe made this one of the coolest and powerful moments in our bands life. This collection of songs is a document of that moment.” – Chris #2
“This Is the End”
“One Trillion Dollars”
