Political punk rockers Anti-Flag have just unveiled the music video for their latest album’s title track and they make a great point in the process. The video for ‘20/20 Vision‘ kicks off with a message of “Dancing on our graves, distractions make us slaves” before we meet a bearded bloke dancing up a storm in front of a projection screen with videos and images of terrible atrocities from across the globe, which to me signifies that if we keep dancing around the subject, nothing will be done to combat the issues.
Anti-Flag have that “no fucks given” attitude and they’re not afraid to use their platform and popularity to spruik their message to the world, the band are 100% Anti-Trump and this is shown on the album cover for their latest release, as well as the lyrical content of some of their songs from it.
Our reviewer gave the album a 9/10 rating stating:
“Anti-Flag have unleashed an album that (to borrow a gaming term) will separate the true punks from the casuals. Whether you agree with its contents or not, 20/20 Visionis the first of (I’m hoping) some solid releases coming this year from the punk world, and cements the band among the heavyweights in a genre that, thanks to the current political climate, continues to remain relevant in 2020, despite what certain corners of Twitter might have you think.”
