About Anti Flag:
Since unleashing their seminal 1996 debut Die for the Government, Anti-Flag has empowered and emboldened the listeners of two generations beset with a new millennium stricken by war, racial upheaval, and financial collapse. The Pittsburgh, PA quartet?Justin Sane [vocals], Chris#2 [bass, vocals], Chris Head [guitar, vocals], and Pat Thetic [drums]?has consistently embodied a timeless punk spirit over the course of nine influential offerings, including The Terror State, For Blood and Empire, and most recently, 2015?s American Spring. The latter boasted appearances from icons such as Tom Morello and Tim Armstrong and yielded the anthem ?Brandenburg Gate,? which cracked 1.3 million Spotify streams and counting.
They?ve incinerated stages on tour alongside Rage Against The Machine, Sick of It All, Billy Talent, The Offspring, Rancid, and more in addition to festivals ranging from Coachella to the Vans Warped Tour. A cultural institution, they have spoken out on behalf of movements such as Occupy Together, Greenpeace, Sea Shepherd, and Amnesty International between launching their own label A-F and ANTIFest.
As the world changed again with the controversial 2016 presidential election, the time felt ripe for Anti-Flag?s tenth and most definitive offering yet, American Fall [Spinefarm Records].
About Stray From The Path:
Stray From The Path is a four piece alternative hardcore band, hailing from Long Island, New York. Stray has made it their mission to tackle the often untapped issues that plague the society of the human race. From the law enforcement, to the individuals in bands that take advantage of the sacred supporters of this music scene, Stray shows no mercy in their lyrics when they see injustice.
Comprised of Thomas Williams on Guitar, Drew York on vocals, Dan Bourke on drums and Anthony "Dragon Neck" Altamura, the band strives for a style of music that is not common in the modern age. Without the crutch of computers, and the perfect pace of a click track, stray delivers an unpredictable, raw emotion that feeds off the energy of the people. With the supporters of the band acting as the fuel to the fire, stray has only intensified as their career marched on. With their latest effort "Subliminal Criminals" due out August 14th of 2015, we are about to see a side of Stray that we could all see was coming, but are still not ready for it.
