Anti-Flag’s The Terror State has reached its 10-year anniversary, and to celebrate, the punk band has announced they will embark on a special tour to honour the record, playing the album in its entirety.

When asked about the exclusive shows and their take on the political climate the band said, “Mission Accomplished? For the political and corporate elite who benefit from endless wars, maybe. But with another round of bombing in Iraq in 2014 it's hard not to experience a troubled feeling of déjà vu to the days leading up to the Invasion of Iraq in 2003. The songs of The Terror State were written in the midst of the anti-war movement of that era and continue to remind us that, whether it is Bush or Obama, U.S. wars of aggression and imperialism result in the loss of innocent life and catastrophe at home and abroad. It is clear that the fight to end wars for corporate and political gain is not over. The handful of shows around our Pennywise dates will serve as a creative outlet to direct that frustration and anger and will be a collective celebration of those unwilling to relent to the criminal and morally bankrupt corporate and political elite of our time.”

Anti-Flag will be playing Terror State 10th Anniversary shows both preceding and following their run with Pennywise that begins in January. Tickets go on sale today.
