Anti-Flag in New Zealand and Australia by underground

Anyone who checked this band out at this year’s Big Day Out or Taste of Chaos a few years back will be excited about the news that Anti-Flag is returning to New Zealand and Australia in December. Considering both those shows the band played as many tracks as possible in the short-length sets the band were allotted, they should be exceptional at their own headlining shows. I understand the gigs are likely to be charity shows, where the band asks fans to bring something to donate to the chosen local charity. I reckon this is awesome, because it is one thing to see a band sing about caring and politics and shit, but this is an active way to make a difference, involve fans and help the community the band is touring in.

Be there. These shows are guaranteed to go off, with Anti-Flag sure to play a passionate, tight performance. At their past shows they played as though they want to be there, and it is probably safe to say this band loves performing above everything else. Although the last album received a mixed reception, it shows the quality and talent of a band who is capable of more than political anthems. Rip it Up’s Amberleigh Jack puts the doubters straight here! For those not too sure whether they should go:
