2013 marks the 20th year of Anti-Flag and also the beginning of a new chapter in the history of A-F Records. To commemorate this, the label/band is excited to announce the “20 Years of Hell” 7” vinyl/online subscription series. These special one of a kind records will be hand numbered, have screened die cut covers, and are limited to 500.
Anti-Flag and A-F Records are stoked to announce that Vol. 3 of the Split 7-inch series is with Akron, OH’s Worship This!. “20 Years of Hell: Vol. 3” features two re-recorded and re-envisioned Anti-Flag tracks as well as two re-mastered tracks by Mass Giorgini from the Worship This! A-F Records debut LP, Tomorrow, I’ll Miss You. You can stream the re-recording of “Wake Up” exclusively on Absolute Punk. The song originally appeared on Anti-Flag’s 2003 LP, The Terror State.
Justin Sane of Anti-Flag had this to say about Worship This!:
“In a laptop production era, its pretty great to come across a band that gives a shit. Worship This! are a band that you want to be friends with. They sound real, sincere, touchable, on a level that I haven’t seen in years. Melodic punk rock in a world where there is very little true melodic punk rock. Tracked live, “Tomorrow, I’ll Miss You” is 4 friends capturing and documenting real life. If you like records that are Copernican, you’re going to want this in your collection.”
1. Anti-Flag – Wake Up (Re-recorded)
