Anti-Flag have premiered the lyric video for ‘Sky Is Falling‘ via Substream.
The track is featured on the band’s forthcoming release ‘American Spring‘ which is out on May 27th via Spinefarm Records.
Watch ‘Sky Is Falling‘ here:
The clip addresses drone strikes, which are an extremely topical issue in the wake of recent events, as an American and an Italian citizen were killed by drone strikes. The song arrives at a critical time in the current government administration.
Here’s what the band had to say to Substream about the song and the drone strikes:
“We release this song and video days after President Obama apologized for a drone strike that inadvertently killed an American and an Italian being held captive by al Qaeda in Pakistan. President Obama did the right thing by apologizing to the victims and their families. But otherwise, his apologies fall short of the target. We call on President Obama to extend his apologies to victims of U.S. drone strikes who do not hold U.S. and European passports. Furthermore, we demand an end to the U.S. drone program.”
