When Anti-Flag inked their deal with RCA Records, a lot of the early fans were pissed off because of selling out and blah blah blah. You know, the oldest punkrock cliché in the book along with ‘I liked their first album better’. But now it’s 2009 and Anti-Flag is back on an indie label. This time it’s Side One Dummy that will be releasing the new Anti-Flag album which is called “The People Or The Gun”.

In times of war and economic recession, there is no lack of fuel for a political punkrock band like Anti-Flag. And so you’ll find songs on “The Economy Is Suffering… Let It Die”, “You Are Fired (Take This Job, Ah, Fuck It)” or “No War Without Warriors”… titles that don’t leave much to the imagination. There are no surprises on this album, it sounds just like any other Anti-Flag album and except for the stinker that is “This Is The First Night”, this is yet another solid punkrock release that fits right in the band’s discography.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
