Anti-Flag, Part 1

Today, Anti-Flag released their major label debut, an album which is among the most politically radical records released on a major label in recent memory. Radical politics aside though, it's also one of their most accomplished and solidly written albums and our reviewer described it as "classic street-punk-by-way-of-pop-punk sound incorporating elements of folk, ska and `80s hardcore into the band's already powerful bag of tricks. "

I had a chance to sit down for a lengthy chat with the second of two Chris's in the band for a chat about the major label deal, the politics and more. Our interview went so well in fact, that we're going to spread it over two days. Stay tuned for the second half where we talk about AF Records, hockey and Propagandhi.
