Since their inception, Anti-Flag has kept politics at the front of everything they do. There’s no poseurs in this band by any means. With their new album 20/20 Vision out this Friday, the band holds true to that ideal. The band’s latest single “The Disease” doesn’t pull punches and places a lot of what’s wrong with the world in its face.
The song has a catchy stride, but it’s not pop by any means. The imagery from the music and from the video have dark overtones. The vocals stand out between riffs and the drums. In a lot of ways, this is Anti-Flag mixing what they’ve always done with more hooks and a more streamlined production. The end result is that the message gets delivered loud and clear.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The single can be streamed on all services. 20/20 Vision is available for preorder on multiple formats and in various bundles ahead of its January 17 release from A-F Records. Anti-Flag is on tour tomorrow in Milano, IT at HT Factory until May 30 in Seattle, WA at The Crocodile. Their complete tour schedule is available here.
