Anti-Flag is celebrating their 20th year as a band! 2013 has been a big year for both Anti-Flag and their label A-F Records. Having just come off a 20 Year Anniversary tour, the band has now announced a 7” Vinyl/Online Subscription series. Titled 20 Years Of Hell, these special records will have di-cut covers, be hand-numbered, and limited to 500.
Here is how each 7” and the subscription program will work:
SIDE A: Anti-Flag will be handpicking and re-recording new versions of 1 song from each of their 11 full length releases as well as recording a brand new unreleased track that will appear on the final volume of the series:
· VOLUME 1: “Die for the Government” and “Their System Doesn’t Work for You”
· VOLUME 2: “New Kind of Army” and “Underground Network”
· VOLUME 3: “Mobilize” and “The Terror State”
· VOLUME 4: “For Blood and Empire” and “A Benefit For The Victims Of Violent Crime”
· VOLUME 5: “The Bright Lights Of America” and “The People Or The Gun”
· VOLUME 6: “The General Strike” and a NEW UNRELEASED TRACK
SIDE B: Keeping with Anti-Flag’s commitment to the punk community and efforts to help other musicians have a voice, the B side of each volume will showcase 2 songs from 6 new bands (one band per volume.) These bands will be announced as the series progresses throughout the year.
As well as the 7” records, subscribers will also receive a 7” club membership that gives them access to a website community that is exclusive to the “20 Years of Hell” subscribers:
