2311

Long-running political punk band Anti-Flag have revealed the art and track list for American Spring, their 10th studio album and first for New York-based Spinefarm Records, who announced having signed the band earlier this year. The album will be released May 26, with the premiere of lead single “Fabled World” scheduled for March 31.

Anti-Flag emphasized the album’s front and back covers, which depict two faces — that of an American soldier, and that of a woman donning a hijab veil — obscured by an exploding flower.

“The songs of American Spring are an aggressive critique of the global social and political climate of 2015,” the band said in a statement. “The cover art is meant to challenge our collective view of violence and peace.”

The band explained that the album’s packaging will include essays, liner notes, and detailed “ways for us all to take action against injustice in the world.” View the album’s track list at the Anti-Flag website.
