Anti-Flag veröffentlichen am 28. September das Akustikalbum „American Reckogning“ via Spinefarm Records. Dabei vertont die Band Songs der letzten beiden Alben „American Spring“ und „American Fall“ und covert John Lennons „Gimme Some Truth“, Buffalo Springfields „For What It’s Worth“ und Cheap Tricks „Surrender“. Nachdem die Band aus Pittsburgh bereits ein Video zu der Akustikversion des Songs „The Debate Is Over (If You Want It)“ veröffentlichte, legt der Vierer nun mit „American Attraction“ nach.

„We can not be knee jerk reactionary to a president that uses corporate media to endlessly lie,…“

Über das Album äußert sich die Band folgend: „When you’re a band that has been together as long as Anti-Flag has, you take nothing for granted. We have far exceeded any personal expectations we have had for the band, our art and the reach that it has had. This chapter of our band started with the hope of American Spring, the anger of American Fall and comes to cessation with American Reckoning…This piece focuses on songs from both records (Spring/Fall) that we felt maintain their relevance, even in the distraction politic Donald Trump America, where issues and truth are distorted in a seconds time.

„…We created statements and art that we feel directly combat these tactics, American Reckoning has allowed us to revisit some of those previous statements and shine new light on them.“

We also wanted to provide insight into our influences that lead us to write the records, that’s where the covers come in. They are songs that people may not expect to be influential to Anti-Flag records but either in their messaging or sonics they were tremendously impactful to us as individuals and hence the song writing process. We can not be knee jerk reactionary to a president that uses corporate media to endlessly lie, we created statements and art that we feel directly combat these tactics, American Reckoning has allowed us to revisit some of those previous statements and shine new light on them.“
