This joint-headline show is a site for sore eyes! Following last years ‘American Fall‘ album, Anti-Flag have recently released a remastered version of their seminal 1998 release ‘The System Doesn’t Work for You‘ last month.
The record will feature all nine tracks from the band’s split record with d.b.s North America Sucks as well as the ten songs that were previously unreleased at the time the first version of the album came out.
The reissue of Their System Doesn’t Work For You was released on June 8. The previous effort by Anti-Flag was their 2017 live record Live Vol. One.
Recently, the band announced a new benefit song for Amnesty International. Their version of “Toast To Freedom” was recorded at Berlin’s historic Hansa Studio and includes performances from Donots, Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent, and Bernd of Beatsteaks. Check out the video below;
Joining Anti-Flag is non-other than Cancer Bats! Following the surprise release of ‘The Spark that Moves‘ album back in April, the Toronto natives will be returning to Ireland to no doubt, level Whelan’s on Tuesday, November 6th.
Having been smashing up stages for the past 13 years, Cancer Bats are renowned for their exhausting live shows that are packed with adrenalin from start to finish. This tour will showcase a variety of tracks from the band’s discography and will most likely focus on their latest opus which incidentally kicks major arse!
The Spark That Moves was recorded in Winnipeg over the course of the winter at producer JP Peters’ Private Ear studios and was mixed by the band’s long-time collaborator Eric Ratz.
Cormier reports that bassist Jaye Schwarzer was the driving force behind the new material, and adds: “Jaye definitely set the standard when it came to writing, sending through so many ideas on guitar.
