US punk rock activists, Anti-Flag, are returning to Australia this December and will be bringing with them a world first!

2016 marks the 10th Anniversary of their landmark For Blood And Empire album. Australian fans will be the first to witness the band honouring its release by playing the album in its entirety! Not only will Anti-Flag be performing this incendiary album from start to finish but also an arsenal of hits across their entire catalogue chosen by fans on the night!

A safe space where all can be free to be who they are. Free from racism, sexism, homo & transphobia, bigotry of any kind. Anti-poverty, anti-capitalism, anti-war, Anti-Flag

The local openers in each city have been announced!

Brisbane better hunker down and be prepared as self-proclaimed thrash pop shitbags, Shutup! Shutup! Shutup! bring their ‘angry, not angsty’ noise to The Triffid and kick off this monstrous tour with an equally monstrous noise.

With their post-grunge meets alternative rock vibe, Newcastle’s Introvert bring a fresh take to an over saturated scene.
Appealing to all the microcosms within it while advancing with each release to a deeper, personal sound.

Adding to the political nature of Anti-Flag’s core beliefs, Newcastle natives, Liberation Front stand for unity and freedom, opposing the evils of fascism, racism and corporate greed.  Having played with Anti-Flag in the past, they are the perfect addition to the bill.  However, Liberation Front are calling it a day and will play their last ever show in Sydney on this tour. You couldn’t find a more fitting finale for them to bow out.

Sydney’s premiere rock n roll punks, Nerdlinger, are one of the hardest working bands in the nation. Shows with international giants of the scene as well as endless national tours and lots of radio airplay have made them a household name within the greater scene.

Adelaide’s gig is the only All Ages show on tour and will be opened in style with Stabbitha And The Knifey Wifeys.
Five punk as fvck noisemakers who play loud, mostly unmelodic screaming punk rock that covers important issues just as much as it covers songs about their mates and mucking around. They are guaranteed party starters!

Melbourne three-piece punk juggernaut, Wolfpack, are a 100% not-for-profit band, donating all their earnings to charity. Raising over $22 000 over the last four years, their noble acts are delivered via intense riffs, belting vocals and a turbo-charged rhythm section that get any pit energised and ready for the night ahead.

Perth skate punks The Decline will send Anti-Flag and Scott Reynolds off with a giant dose of fast-paced, energetic, melodic punk. The four piece have been relentless in taking their message to as many corners of the world as possible over the last few years. With shows from Slovenia to Spain, Mexico to Melbourne, they are razor sharp and ready to deliver.

Anti-Flag will be joined by the legendary Scott Reynolds. Scott sang for the highly influential pop-punkers ALL between 1989 and 1993.  He has since gone on to spend the better part of 25 years touring the globe fronting bands such as The Pavers, Goodbye Harry, The Bonesaw Romance and Scott Reynolds & The Steaming Beast (featuring Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips).  Scott will be performing songs from all his incarnations including ALL!
