Anti-Flag, the stalwart political punk band, announced their breakup yesterday on Patreon, deleting their website and social media pages. The news came suddenly, without explanation; they had been on tour and due to support Dropkick Murphys in Prague tomorrow, as Stereogum notes. The band’s publicist declined to comment on the situation.
The breakup post reads:
The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, band is fronted by Justin Geever, known as Justin Sane, and released a string of records from the 1990s to the present day through labels including Fat Wreck Chords, RCA, Spinefarm, and its own A-F imprint. Anti-Flag’s latest album, Lies They Tell Our Children, came out this year.
